In tradition of the past two years, for this new year, I would like to outline 14 things I would like to do or accomplish in 2014. I don't like the idea of making "resolutions," so instead I like to make attainable goals for myself, little things to work on as the year progresses so that I don't get overwhelmed two weeks in and abandon all hope of improvement by the end of January. Life is fast-paced as it is; I don't need to add to my own stress by creating unattainable goals. I want to set myself up for success, not failure.
1. Make one recipe a month from my "Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays" cookbook that David gave me for Christmas.
