This year I made two new year's resolutions:
1) Eat more pizza, and
2) Make at least one new dish each week.
This second one I made for three reasons:
1) I need something to keep me entertained
2) I get tired of eating the same meals over and over, and
3) I have so many cookbooks and I want to use them
So far it's been fun. The first week I made potpie, although I will admit I didn't use a recipe from one of my cookbooks - I found a recipe online and then tweaked it. The second week I made a mushroom quiche because Jeremy loves quiche and I had never made one before. It turned out pretty good. This week I'm making "creamy scrambled chenna cheese with tomatoes and zucchini" from my The Art of Indian Vegetarian Cooking cookbook. I'm also going to try my hand at making some naan. I've already made the cheese for the dish, using a different method than I usually do, and I'm not too sure of how it turned out. It made less than I think it should have. Oh well, live and learn.
