Last year, some cookbooks got splattered on. Some came to bed with us, some we talked about a lot. Some found new homes, while others we flipped through with gloves on. Then there we those we barely cracked open. We don't love them any less—we just need to resolve to be better.
Here's the beginning of our cookbook resolution list—please add to it in the comments! What are your 2016 cookbook goals?
Follow recipes in cookbooks exactly. No more of this.
Cook from more than three books regularly.
Cook from the books that scare you (ahem, chef books).
Cook from books with others. (We did it some! It was fun.)
First, read the introduction.
Seek out, then hide in, bookstores.
Go to books before the internet.
Revisit the oldies more often, especially the ones without photographs.
Be understanding when something doesn't work out.
Let's make a great big resolution list—add in the comments!
