While I have a few resolutions (complete another Whole30 and to learn more about my Nikon camera), most of my hopes for the new year involve cooking. I created a new page on this blog to track my food-complishments over the next 12 months, but here’s a quick run-down:
In no particular order, some food goals for 2015:
Make more dim sum! Particularly new ones like char siu bao and shu mai.
Make black licorice
Get better at phat si ew — try a few new recipes to find the best
Make three new recipes from the Pok Pok cookbook: som tam thai, ba mii tom yam muu haeng and the sweetened condensed milk affagato
Make more with masa — get better at tortillas, pupusas and tamales!
Make a sweet/spicy fruit/pepper jelly
Make corn chips (faux Fritos)
Make ginger beer
Make faux Goldfish crackers
Make more of these cookies and make cupcakes using these
Perfect at least 6 more Jello shot recipes
Make more bread (or at least lose my fear of yeast)
Make candied ginger
Make preserved lemons
Make some good Hot & Sour Soup
Learn some pressure cookery skills
Brew some beer
Cook more with friends!
Happy New Years, everyone — wishing you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2015!
