I'm not big on New Year's resolutions but I do have a few food-focused goals in mind for 2009.
1. Eat more vegetables, preferably two or three vegetarian meals per week.
2. Work on my woeful gluten-free baking skills.
3. Keep blogging! (Speaking of which, who wants to come for dinner?)
Here's a few other forward-thinking links to possibly inspire you in the upcoming months:
