Culinary Resolutions for 2009

Happy New Year! It is amazing that another year has come and gone. Carolyn and I had a lot of fun this past year and made a lot of tasty dishes. There are a lot of dishes, however, we wanted to try to make, but never got around to. To help make sure we branch out a little more this coming year we have come up with a new invention… Culinary Resolutions!

“Culinary Resolutions” is a list of all the recipes, restaurants and food we want to try or make more often. We will check in half way through the year to see how we are doing and of course report back at the year to see if we made it all the way through the list.

Culinary Resolutions ’09

  • Bake a quiche
  • Make Popovers that pop over, not under
  • Eat more beans and whole grains
  • Try making a souffle (They scare me!)
  • Make more soup
  • Pulled Pork
  • Chicken Piccata
  • Dishes with ricotta cheese
  • Go to more of the restaurants in Adams Morgan (Mama Ayesha has been on our to do list for 2 years!)


I emailed around and got some other DC Food Bloggers to come up with lists of resolutions too. I have to be honest, my list doesn’t seem so ambitious in comparison. I think Carolyn and I will have to power through our list so we can take one some more challenges.

What are your Culinary Resolutions for 2009? Leave them below in the comments section.

  1. luke, i’m too lazy to read through the comments and other followups you might have, but i have a good recipe for pulled pork if you want. i brought it to my frisbee team’s potluck last year, and people complained when i showed up this year without it. man you gotta come out to seattle sometime so we can eat together!

    • Thanks Shaw Girl! I am going to do a separate post on everyone’s resolutions. If anyone else is lurking out there with some resolutions, send them in quick! :)

  2. Just found this wonderful blog while looking for a french onion soup recipe. I just made mine the stovetop way, but will do the onions-in-the-oven next time! One of my resolutions is to check back here more often. I love making quiche, If you have leftover chicken fat – use it in a quiche crust. If not, a third shortening to volume of flour, and a third of the shortening should be butter. Guaranteed raves on your crust will follow. A very Happy New Year to you.

  3. I would have to say my culinary resolution for 2009 would be to keep trying out all those cool recipes that I find on the “interwebs”, but from now on writing about it on my new food blog.

    And of course perfecting my food photography skills in the process. BTW: thanks for the insight on this subject, that’s how I found your blog. I would love to read more about the technical side of food blogging. ;)
