Domaphile resolutions

Happy New Year!  Can I still say that on January 9th?  We have had a slow start to the new year and a bit of a hiatus from Domaphile, but are back in the saddle again, full of anticipation for 2011.  This year, we spent New Year’s eve at our favorite place upstate New York enjoying Belgian beef stew and noodles.  On our drive back, instead of talking about all of our regular resolutions (let’s face it, they are the same every year: wake up earlier! Exercise! Floss! Be Better!!!), we decide to list all of the things we would like to make this year.  Various and sundry things we hope to experiment with and document here.  So far, our list is as follows:

  • Corned Beef
  • Root Beer
  • Tofu
  • Kimchi
  • Sourdough starter
  • Rye bread
  • Paneer
  • Goat Cheese
  • Ricotta
  • Mozzarella
  • Buttermilk
  • Butter
  • Granola Bars
  • Half-sour pickles
  • Chutney
  • Food dehydration
  • Canning
  • Hoshigaki
  • Bento

Aside from these culinary adventures, I am hoping to do some felting and hyperbolic crochet.  A tall order, I know, but it’s only January and I’m still feeling optimistic.

What are you hoping to make this year?  I’m still looking for ideas and contributors, so send along your projects! Better yet, let me know if you have any experience with anything on our list.  Most of the items we have never tried to make before.
