Happy New Year 2014
What are my new year’s resolutions? I’ve got three:
I need to lose weight. As always. I lost ten pounds in 2013 using a low-carb diet. I didn’t talk about it on the blog, but I’m sure my regular readers noticed – the blog was meat heavy this year. I haven’t been good recently – I lost close to 25 pounds by June – but my weight drifted back up over the second half of the year. I need to re-focus, or try a different diet.
More simple recipes. Judy Rodgers passing shook me. The Zuni Cafe Cookbook was a huge influence on my cooking, with its straightforward approach to cooking. I publish a lot of gadgety recipes – rotisserie, pressure cooking, sous vide – because they’re fun, and because I like playing with new toys. I need to get back to basics. I’m going to publish more simple recipes this year.
Finish my next book. I’ve been procrastinating. I have two books about halfway done, and ideas for two others, but I need to focus on one of them and get it out the door. I need to remind myself – real artists ship.
Here’s a look back at my thirteen most popular posts of 2013
Happy New Year, everyone!
