So, since last year worked out pretty good, I thought I would do it again this year. Here they are, my 2014 New Year's Foodie Resolutions!
1. Make pasta from scratch. I got this little machine as a Christmas gift and I really love homemade pasta. It tastes so much better than the store bought dried pasta! So now I need to actually put my money where my mouth is and use this puppy (crank and all). I read the directions and needed a glass of wine afterward. Wish me luck.
3. Ferment my own batch of kimchi. I made my own sauerkraut and that turned out well. Next on the list of fermentation with my favorite addition of spice is kimchi... yum. I'll know if I do it right if it survives my friend Yoonji's taste test. If not, back to the drawing board.

5. Read one of these books in its entirety. They are dense. And frankly, a bit heavy on the words and tone (ahem, you know who you are in this pile). But I need to get schooled. And of course, continue to grow my appreciation of cooking and food. So one of you is gonna get READ. And you're going to like it.
