Happy new year!

I hope you all had a good new year's eve and are excited to start 2008! I love seeing other food bloggers' lists of food they want to make in the next year, and their favourite food they've made in the past year so I wanted to do a post like that too.

Looking over the food that I've made since I started my food blog last June, I'm reminded of the many yummy food discoveries I've made. But also that there's so many recipes out there that I still have to try! I want to make more cakes (maybe figure out what a genoise and chiffon cake are supposed to be like) and fancy desserts. And I really want to find at least 15 delicious and healthy meals that I can make on a weeknight (not sure if that's too much to ask!) The things that are on the top of my list (though really it is a neverending list of recipes) to try are:
-soft pretzels
-apple butter
-homemade pasta (with my new pasta maker!)
-pumpkin butterscotch cake
-chocolate truffles

Favourite Recipes of 2007

Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies

They all look so delicious! I'm excited to see what 2008 brings!

I'm with you on the healthy weeknight meals, especially with me cooking on my own in college. I do have a recipe for Spinach Mushroom Lasagna you could make for your family, and it's vegetarian. I'll hopefully be posting about it soon!! I'm behind in entries lol

I made soft pretzels in middle school, which was about...8 years ago?! I kept the recipe from my cooking class. Maybe it's time I made pretzels again.

Forgot to mention - thanks for showing me that pancake recipe. Now that I bought cloves, I'll have to try them again :)

That's a delicious trip down memory lane! Congrats on a new pasta maker. I just got one at a rummage sale and have had such fun making noodles. I look forward to seeing what you've got cooking in '08!

What a fun read! I loved looking back through your old posts and viewing your huge, beautiful "best foods" pictures. I'm glad you pointed out Matthew's Tofu recipe - I own The Garden of Vegan, and I also think maple syrup is great glaze for tofu! The Starbucks Chocolate Cinnamon Cake looks really good too (I happen to like those two ingredients together).

Yay for 2008 - I'd be excited to see you make pretzels! Jamba Juice makes a good apple cinnamon pretzel that made me curious about the art of making one's own pretzels!
