All the New Foods & Drinks I Made This Year!
One of my goals for 2015 was to “make 15 new food or drink items that I’ve never made before”. And I managed to blow this one out of the water, with 19 new food items!

As you can see from the above list, I started the year off strong by making a new item on New Year’s Day, and then 6 new items on Jan 12 (for my birthday party). I also owe several of these items to the fact that my friend Amy and I started home brewing beer and our first batch was rather undercarbonated so I found some recipes that used beer as an ingredient to use up the under carbonated beer. And just as I typed that I realized that I forgot to include all the beer I made on this list, as they are totally drink items that I’ve never made before!! They are:
- winter ale
- blonde ale
So that’s 23 new items I made this year! Go me!
