Hmmm, I'm not really a New Year's Resolutions kind of girl. Don't think I've ever written down a list of resolutions, and the only one I usually ever make, even in my head, is to drop those last 5 pounds. But I do feel like I'm in something of a transition period (I got tenure just over a year ago which gives me more freedom academically, I'm on sabbatical next fall which will give me a lot more free time, and I'm in the midst of starting my home-based baking business), so I guess I'm feeling a bit more contemplative than normal.
Here's a recap of some of my food-related highlights of 2009.
Wishing you a wonderful 2010!
January 2009: Caramel Cake with Brown Butter Frosting Filling and Chocolate Glaze
Spaghetti Pomodoro in Turin - No picture, but one of the best pasta dishes I've ever eaten
August 2009: Pastry Course at the Institute for Culinary Education (ICE)
October 2009: Brioche and Croissant Course at the ICE (still haven't posted about this yet, but I will!)
December 2009: Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake
I've been making versions of this for almost 5 years now, but it will always be one of my favorites.
December 2009: Buche de Noel (and the Cutest Cookies I've ever made)
