I just can't postpone anymore,I need new pots!In Brazil we have a saying:"Panela velha é que faz comida boa!",or "Old pots make better food." and I kind of agree with it but it's getting ridiculous,I cut my finger last friday making pasta cause my pot had no handle!Besides that I'll try to make better looking cakes,cause mine taste good but look like hell,and I'll try to go easy on the sugar...chocolate,thy name is sin!( I did not think this through,cause if I'm gonna go easy on the sugar how am I gonna improve on the cakes?New year's first dilemma.)

I recently put all of my spices in labeled canning jars stacked on open shelving in my kitchen. I am really enjoying the convenience.

My annual kitchen resolution is to remember to "claw" when I use my chefs knife and stop slicing pieces of knuckle and finger tips off.

Being more organized. We bought a freezer for the basement. No more making big batches of stuff, cramming them into our kitchen freezer and forgetting about them. I even labeled each shelf.

That was last years resolution. It changed my life. Keep a tally on your smartphone. Know what you have in there. Then when your market is having a sale on something you can determine if you need it or not.

I'm going to try a new recipe or a new food at least every other week. I wanted every week, but some weeks are just too busy to stray from your tried and trues.

That was two years ago! The best advice I was given was to do small batches your first year. That way you learn your techniques and if you really like a recipe!

Bill - kimhw gives great advice re: small batch canning. I once made 30 lbs. of pickles, yes you read that correctly, that I didn't like. I find small batches to be the best, at least until you know what you love. Also I recommend the book, The Joy of Pickling. Her recipes are great! Lots of luck.

I need to clean out & organize my kitchen cabinets and drawers. I have so many things that I don't use and take up so much space and keep the other items away from a convents space. Ugh, anyone want to help, lol?

Keep the resolution we started a couple years ago...Friday night is Italian night, Sunday night is comfort food (stews and shepards pie stuff). One night is a new recipe, one night is go out (although we often let that slip by in order to simply stay home). One night is use something from the freezer. etc.

One: To actually start recording the few recipes I come up with on my own. And even start sharing them here.
Two: To keep bringing my breakfast and lunch to work. Stop eating out for those meals to keep cost and calories/processed foods at a minimum. I tend to enjoy them more because I don't have to waste my time driving to the deli or wherever to get food and then rush back before my lunch break is up.
