I like to consider myself a bit of a foodie. There are very few things I love more than spending time in the kitchen cooking delicious food for myself and for my favorite people. Most people just assume that with my restricted diet (I don't eat red meat, pork, anything ground, anything in a tube, or shellfish) that I don't eat much. But in reality, aside from meats, I will eat just about anything. Put any preparation of any vegetable in front of me and I'll at least taste it, but more than likely, I'll love it.
One of my goals for 2012 is to cook some recipes that I've never tried before. This could be anything from a different flavor profile or cooking with different ethnic foods. I've been pouring through foodgawker looking at photos and looking through different recipes and this is the list of 12 different foods to try in 2012.
I'd love to get your suggestions too! One of my favorite things about foodgawker is reading the blogger's perspective on the recipe. I love making recipes based on other people's reviews. So link me to your favorites!!
