For years, I’ve had a running list of foods I want to make, ranging from complicated projects to simple items I’ve just never gotten around to making before. In 2014, I crossed a ton of things off that list, including double crust apple pie (with homemade pie crust!), tortillas, potstickers, Indian food (chicken tikka masala with homemade naan), meatballs, flan, homemade crackers, bagels, cooked fudge, pad Thai, and fruit leather.
I wanted to keep that streak going, so in honor of the new year, I picked 15 things to make in 2015. It was an ambitious list, but I got a lot accomplished! Here we go:
