2012 food resolutions

It’s the time of year we make promises to ourselves about things we will try to do differently in the new year. Resolutions range from the pretty basic, such as figuring out which pots and pans have finally outlived their usefulness, to the fanciful: According to the website for ”The Simpsons,” Homer has decided to “only eat food I grow myself. Where can I buy seeds for a hot dog tree?”

If you are in search of ideas, here are a few sites offering lists that may provide food for thought. And if you have resolutions of your own (besides the obvious: sending more great stuff to the Recipe Box), feel free to share using the comment link below.

If you are in need of some new gear to freshen up your kitchen, PR Newswire offers this list.

Apron Adventures has several ideas about expanding her cooking repertoire.

iVillage offers 10 small changes it says ”can make a big impact on the way you eat and cook.”

USA Today’s Nutrition nation blog has listed nutrient-rich foods to ”put on the menu in 2012 and every year.”

And if you enjoy fishing around for new ideas, check out Gourmet magazine’s list of top food sites. It may be enough to keep you busy until 2013.

Happy New Year and bon appetit to all.
