jp, check out this blog: THE GREAT BIG VEGETABLE CHALLENGE
I tried several new things this past year:
- an Indian dish for the first time, using garam masala
- awesome osso buco
- Israeli couscous
- fresh heart of palm from an Asian market I discovered; there's lots more to try from there, including frozen fish balls that are still in my freezer - thought they'd be good in soup, but haven't used them yet.
- cheesecake! I'm not much of a baker, but I found a recipe that does not require a water bath, and it turned out great.
