  1. My new year’s resolution that I posted yesterday goes well with today’s contest. Time to get cooking!

  2. Checked out Metropolitan Market’s event page – Fit by Nature looks like an interesting read.

    Cast Iron Skillet Big Flavors looks most appealing. I’m always looking for new ways to spice up foods that I already eat. As far as a new recipe, I’m thinking paella is on the list for this year.

  4. Maggie

    in 2012, i’d like to get more adventurous in the kitchen! roasting my own red bell peppers, making my own chocolate syrup, making gnocchi from scratch, things that require purchasing less plastic packaging.

  5. Maggie

    the coterie room!

  6. Maggie

    Salmon, Desserts & Friends. three of my favorite things!

  7. Fit by Nature: the AdventX Twelve – Week Out Fitness Program

  8. Il Corvo, it is run by a tiny team that hand makes everything!

  9. Amanda S.

    My goal today .is to cook more at home

  10. Amanda S.

    I’d like to try the food from Harborside.

  11. Amanda S.

    The Cast Iron Skillet Big Flavors book appeals to me because it’s the simple kind of cooking I love to do!

  12. My goal is to get to the farmers market and try at least one new recipe each week.

  13. The Fit by Nature event looks good!

  14. Yesterday I didn’t eat out at all and cooked all of our meals. This is a big step for the New Year:)( we’re trying to cook more and eat out less)

    The Cast Iron Skillet Big Flavors event since that’s one kitchen item that tends to sit on my counter, rarely used, and I’d love to use it more often.

  16. Kalyn

    I tweeted this too!

  17. Kalyn

    Looking forward to The Coterie Room.

  18. I really want to learn to make pad thai this year! I’ve tried a few times with not much luck. I’m taking a class this spring though!

  19. Laura

    i drive by Local 360 a lot, so I would love to try their food!

  20. Laura

    i love working out so the fit by nature cooking class and book signing looks like a lot of fun!

  21. I’d love to learn this year how to prepare fancy main courses, like prime rib, or roasts that require twine -both of which intimidate me! I purchased my first Le Creuset cookware, a 2.5 QT Dutch Oven, which has made some pretty amazing holiday dinner sides, like Pan-seared Brussels Sprouts with Apples, Bacon, Shallots and Rosemary -but I’m ready to take on the challenge provide the main event! (I’v never even cooked a turkey, but I did rotisserie grill a chicken for the first time last year, to great results!)

    Bonus 1: Looking forward to sampling Il Corvo Pasta at Foodportunity-*homemade Italian pasta = best comfort food ever*

    Bonus 2: Most interested in Metropolitan Market’s class: Cast Iron Skillet Big Flavors: 90 Recipes for the Best Pan in Your Kitchen.
    I’ve heard nothing but good things about the über-versatile cast iron skillet, and this is the year of investing in quality cookware for me!
    (Any suggestions?)

    I tweeted!
