Here are some of my goals for the New Year:
speed up my prepping/chopping
improve my frying skills
improve my pizza
improve my brioche/Challah/Easter bread breadmaking skills
continue working on my roast chicken
make a Malakov Torte
make a Russian Charlotte
make a lasagna with a Bechamel
bake a decent King Cake. My attempt at King Cake last Mardi Gras was my biggest baking fail last year.
make more cookies and crackers from scratch in the New Year, to cut down on the amount of processed cookies and crackers in the house.
