2014 Foodie Resolutions

I'm not much of a resolution type of gal. All those great New Year's intentions some how always seem to fizzle by Valentine's Day...if not sooner! And then I feel disappointed in myself and full of self loathing.

But this year, I decided to focus on a few food related Must Do's. If I write them down, hopefully I will actually accomplish them! Here goes:

1. Join Fresh Fork again. 
I didn't participate last year because of the wedding. I hate to waste food and I knew there was no way in hell I would have the time to do any serious cooking. I really missed our weekly bags of goodies...especially the watermelons!

2. Make bread. Real bread. With yeast.
For some reason, yeast terrifies me! I'm always afraid I'm going to kill it so I just avoid it. I know this is really silly so I've already bought some yeast. 

3. Try Brewnuts.
I love donuts. So much that we had a donut truck at our wedding reception! And I love beer. These geniuses thought to put the two together. Get in my mouth now! I swiped this photo from their FB page for your viewing pleasure. You're welcome.

4. Compost.
I had a compost pile a few years ago and really loved it. Then I was in a car accident that kept me from being able to use my arm. I couldn't stir the pile for a really long time and eventually gave up on it. I think the time is right to get it going again - especially with a new hubby with big strong arms.

5. If you Pin it, Make it!
We cook a lot around our house. We both love it and really enjoying cooking together. I pin a TON of recipes on Pinterest because it's the easiest way to save recipes. I've actually made some of the things I've Pinned but not nearly enough. I would like to make one recipe a month from my boards. And not just the cookies...

What about you? Do you make resolutions? Anyone have a good bread recipe?
