Hello, 2010!

Happy New Year everyone!

As promised, here is the new goal for Spontaneous Creativity in the new year: over 2010, I will explore and demystify one unusual ingredient each week, ranging from strange looking produce to exotic pantry items.

Each Sunday, ingredients will be introduced with a bit of background information, traditional uses (including links to recipes) and original recipes made up in my kitchen, complete with pictures, step-by-step instructions and tips.

I decided to start a new blog dedicated to this idea, so head on over to 52 Kitchen Adventures: Exploring One Unusual Ingredient Each Week, add it to your Google Reader or whatever feed you use, and add @KitchAdventures to your Twitter.

If you have any ideas for ingredients or any questions, please email me. Hope you enjoy my new blog and have a great 2010!

NYE Resolutions and Goals

So 2009 is almost over (can you believe it?) and the buzz about New Year's resolutions is just beginning. I just saw another blog starting up from a friend on Facebook with the goal of cooking new food each week from a different country. What a great idea! I would love to do something like that...something to inspire and motivate both in the kitchen and in blogging. I also just got a fabulous DSLR camera and need more opportunities to practice with it!

Any ideas?

I will be brainstorming the next few days. This weekend after New Year's I will update with my new idea/goal for the year and begin regular blogging once a week to explore something new.

Have a safe and fun NYE!
