January 2012 Recipes

I decided that in 2012, on the last day of each month, I am going to do a compilation post, highlighting everything I made during that month.
If you’re like me and see so many recipes on different blogs that you want to try, but then can’t remember where you saw something or even that you saw it until you see it again, consider the last day of the month as a memory refresher.
I can’t wait until the end of the year to be able to look back and see what I made, month by month, and remember, Oh those were the cookies I made on Skylar’s first day at her new school or there are the potatoes that I almost didn’t make but ended up being one of Scott’s favorites. Looking back at the pictures of food that I made and remembering what the weather was like that time of year, special milestones of Skylar’s around that time, how I was feeling about life when I was rolling out little thumbprint cookies is fun for me.
It’s interesting how much I can remember about life in general as I look at old food pictures in old blog posts. The feelings and memories the pictures conjure up months and years later is amazing, and I can’t wait to look back at this post in almost a year.
January 2012 Recipes
What did you make in January that was memorable?
If you have wish-list items you want me to make, I’m all ears.
I do tend to prefer to bake and make sweet things rather than savory. It tends to be more fun for me.
Plus, with food photography, I can make cookies ahead of time and photograph them at my leisure whereas hot tofu and quinoa and a salad with dressing on it for dinner isn’t so easy to just “wait” and photograph later on with better lighting. Trying to take pictures with bad lighting and with hungry family members waiting to eat dinner is a recipe for a bad night, which why you don’t see as many savory recipes.
And, bottom line, I love dessert.
What’s on your to-make list?
