My 2015 Resolution: Ten New Dishes

The hostess of our New Year’s Eve party required guests to make a resolution. She had everyone write their resolution on a small white board, and she took a picture “for encouragement.” My resolution, as you can see below, was to make ten “totally new” dishes during 2015:

Greg Holding Sign Saying: "Cook 10 Totally New Dishes"

We agreed that I would send her pictures of each new dish I made, so I have a record of this particular challenge. Here’s a list of what I made. Check back, and I’ll link them to posts where I elaborate on them with photos and recipes.

  1. Chilaquiles in Guajillo Sauce
  2. Pizza with Thai Green Curry Sauce and Chickenless Strips
  3. Escalivada
  4. Goat Cheese & Fig Jam Tartlets
  5. Ratatouille Lasagna
  6. Parmesan Crisps
  7. Moroccan Spiced Chicken
  8. Corn Risotto
  9. Potato Leek Soup (with a hint of fennel)
  10. Homemade Black Beans

This was a good party game, and it turned out to be a very fun and tasty resolution.
