There's a lot we want to tackle in 2016. Next year could be the year we learn to make our own croissants; it could be the one we build our own table. The first things we're itching to tick off? These recipes. Here are the first that will be hitting our stoves and ovens—the first that will be messing up our kitchens. Join us, won't you?

Amanda H.: That brown butter butternut squash pull-apart bread thingy. So damn good. And more cooking with nuts and seeds and grains.

Kenzi: +1 pull-apart thingy. I honestly cannot stop thinking about it.

I want to make more yogurt bread! That is not flashy or wild and doesn't require acquiring some new skill, but I have this vision in my head of the person who has it all together: The pillows on her couch are always fluffed, she has a little spot for the keys (they always go in the same place), and she bakes yogurt bread, weekly. I will resume some such plan in 2016.

Sarah: Oh gosh, so many things. All the things I tell you all I am going to make and NEVER EVER do. It's mostly because the ingredients are prohibitively expensive or elusive, or because I am a bad combination of overly ambitious and pretty darn lazy!

But in 2016, maybe I will accomplish great things like...

Flank Steak with Green Sauce

Lindsay-Jean: All of the matcha things, now including the granola bars Sarah mentioned. Also, squishy cake and butternut squash on toast.

Caroline: Bagels! Laminated dough! (A gal can dream.) The ricotta—and mozzarella—I've been meaning to try my hand at over many a New Year's resolution list. Blackbird's Bread. Sarah's broccoli rabe.

Riddley: This year, I will get better at cooking meat other than chicken. Perhaps I’ll start with Diana Kennedy’s Carnitas, Short Rib Ragu, or Flank Steak with Green Sauce!

Kristen: More yeasty, breakfasty pastries (brown butter butternut pull-apart thing, cinnamon rolls, a pull-apart citrus thing) to show off at Christmas. Also, pork ragu a few more times.

Gabi: In the new year, I'm joining a cookbook club at my friendly neighborhood food interest bookstore. I'd like to make at LEAST 10 recipes from each cookbook pick every month!

Chocolate Dump-It Cake

Leslie: Literally everything in my collections. Mostly:

I think about these five recipes literally every time I'm at the grocery store, but have had a reason not to get the ingredients every time. 2016 is my year, though!
