It's Resolution Week at Food52, and we're looking ahead to how we want to run our kitchens, 2013-style.

Today: All the delicious things we're going to make -- not buy -- in 2013.

DIY mozzarella

Last year, we gave you our list of New Year's Resolutions -- to bake our own bread, to make our own yogurt, to churn our own ice cream, to mix our own sausage.

Now, heading into 2013, we've grown up -- and so have you. So our goals for the new year -- our challenges, our aspirations -- are getting even more serious. They're getting even more noble. And, when our fridges and pantries and tables are stocked with the very things we had promised ourselves we'd make, they'll taste even sweeter (or saltier, or creamier, or whatever preference you may have).

Let us know your New Year's Resolutions in the comments, and we'll help each other towards a food-filled 2013. Cheers!

This year, we will...
