A lot of people don't do New Year's Resolutions because they ultimately fail at them. I actually like them though, and see them as a long term goal instead of a whole new lifestyle by the first of the year. Last year I decided to make all the recipes in The Clinton Street Baking Company Cookbook. I ultimately failed, but made a ton of them. I actually lost interest in the book, because some of the recipes just seemed off. The book still makes the best pancakes I have ever made though! I also made a conscious effort to be more aware of my environment. I got rid of my use of paper towels altogether, and started making my own cleaners. So easy!
This year I want to learn how to make bread and also explore all the awesome bread in New York. To counterbalance the carb-fest I am also going to try to get more into juicing (BluePrint Cleanse inspired me)! Check out these two amazing pages from New York Magazine. I am definitely going to be slowly checking off these breads as I try them!
Check out these New Year's Fritters we make every year. Or my Great Grandma's Nut Rolls.
