New Years Resolutions

I always laugh about new years resolutions. Mostly because it seems as though 99.9% of them deal with working out more and losing weight, which makes my month of January very difficult when it comes time to go workout. As a future Registered Dietitian, I realize that this is a difficult task to keep up. If you are strong willed, you can make it happen. I don't ever remember making a New Year's resolution in the past and I would really like to make one for myself.

Currently I am still in grad school and completing my dietetic internship. I have one more year left. Or, according to my countdown on iGoogle, I have 347 days until graduation. As every dietetic undergrad student, grad student, and intern knows, we are constantly stressed out and barely have anytime to do things for ourselves. So far that has been about 6 and a half years of my life. Therefore, I would like to make a resolution for myself to do something I enjoy. That is when I thought of this blog! It has been about 5 months since my first two posts. Yes, I probably had time, but when I had that small amount of free time all I wanted to do was absolutely nothing, or for some reason I would find it necessary to continue doing school work so that I would be ahead.

Therefore, my new years resolution is to try 2 to 3 new recipes I have never made and blog about them. They could be timeless recipes such as meatloaf, tuna noodle casserole, chicken noodle soup, lasagna, or even newer recipes, such as recipes from the stack of Cooking Light and Real Simple magazines I have laying in my room. Some could be healthy (sticking with practicing what I preach) and some just good old comfort food (still practicing what I preach... You can't exclude everything from your everyday eating lifestyle- P.S. I hate the word "diet"). I will also include some of my opinions on food fads and nutrition in the news!

I have no recipes for you today. But I have a very delicious looking picture.
These are cupcakes from MainStreet Cupcakes in Hudson, OH. My mom and I got these for my dad's birthday. Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake, Pink Champagne and Strawberrys, Chocolate Bubbly, Half Baked, and Cup of Java.

Happy New Year to all! Now I just have to think of which recipe I would like to try first!
