A New Year, A New Menu

One of my goals for the year is to find some new recipes that will hopefully become permanent staples for our family.

I’ve been in a major cooking rut lately. I’ve become very bored with all our regular meals and need to spice things up a bit. And although I find a lot of fantastic recipes on Pinterest, I want to try something else.

My plan for the year is to make at least four (maybe more) meals out of each section of this cookbook. I chose four recipes instead of the entire cookbook because some of the recipes call for appliances or tools that I don’t have. For example, a stand mixer. I don’t own one. I wish I did, but they are expensive little boogers! So, I’ll be passing on those recipes unless they can be adapted.

The cookbook is divided into nine sections.

Breakfast

Lunch

Soups

Starters, Party Food, and Drinks

Pasta and Pizza

Supper

Sides

Sweets

Canning (I will not be making any of these unless I purchase canning equipment at some point)

I love the Pioneer Woman. I’ve made some of her recipes in the past and they’re always delicious. Plus, I got this cookbook for Christmas last year and still have made one recipe out of it! The time has come!

I can’t wait to get started. I’ll be blogging about each recipe and plan to document my progress on Instagram with the hashtag #tashiacooks. Exciting, I know. But it’s a way for me to keep track of my accomplishments and maybe inspire others too.

Wow. I have a big year ahead of me and this is just the beginning! I love new years and a fresh start!

I’m excited!
