What's Cooking 2012

If you read my book blog, you know that I always have a stack of books waiting to be read. Tonight, I started thinking about what is in my "to be cooked" pile.

Pinterest is a great source of recipe inspiration for me. Feel free to click over and see what has recently caught my eye. I also read a lot of cooking magazines, got a stack of new cookbooks for Christmas and check them out regularly from the library as well. I am not really short on recipes I want to make. But, then there are those things that would be more challenging to me in the kitchen. That's the type of recipes I'm talking about today.

So, in the spirit of the new year, I am starting to work on a list of new things I want to cook.

For starters, I would really like to try to make croissants this year. And homemade crackers. What else? Cook more fish. Master pie crust. Make more bread, sourdough, brioche, etc. Make healthier choices...that still taste good. How about making my own yogurt?

What's on your "to be cooked" list? I'm always looking for ideas.

Hey friend! I love reading your me some inspiration to try something new:)! I was telling my hubby that I needed to work on cooking skills this year, my baking skills are well polished b/c we always have dessert and I am comfortable making rolls, breads, etc. We always have meals too, I just cook a lot of the same things. I got a whole new set of pots and pans for Christmas, so maybe that will be the kick in the pants I need. I couldn't get your book blog link to work, can you repost? Miss you!
