Sounds to me like the first thing you should cook is some venison :)


These are good posts to do. They make you stop and think about everything. Something I haven't had time to do and that is making me feel very scattered and unfocused. I need goals.


That was a great round-up! I'm jealous that you achieved most of your goals last year.


What a year! It seems like your good far outweighed the bad. I'm glad your pup is doing better. Cheers to meeting our goals for 2014!


What a year! Here's to new goals and good things in 2014!

Sarah & Arkadi

Congrats on your accomplishments! All the best!


I second the venison comment! mmmmmm chili

Love the idea for the post! I may have to do something along the same lines.

Love setting goals, have a few big ones set for 2014!

Happy New Year!


Cook a brisket and go to Chiang Mai!


I've been following your blog for years now and as long as you post I'll be reading! I'm a Stef too, and a fellow Canuck! I'm so glad to know that you traveled to China (an experience I hope to share) and am so terribly sorry for the loss of your friend Molly. I lost my friend this year too. Some weeks in the year are so hard, but your posts offer something special that I can look forward to. Thanks, and keep them coming!

Amanda @ Once Upon a Recipe

Sounds like a great list of goals for 2014! I'm pretty happy to say buh-bye to 2013 and start fresh, hopefully with more ups than downs ahead! I just booked a trip to Thailand in May, so I'll have to share details of must-see sights!


Mary W: Adding venison to my list! I've definitely never made that before.

Melissa: That's exactly why I like writing them, it sums up things nicely and makes it easier to plan ahead

Vincci: Not the kitchen one! And now, looking at my 'about me' page I also didn't update it

Kelly: Thanks! Definitely more good than bad.

Renee: You too!

Sarah & Arkadi: Thanks so much

Redawna: You should! Its a great way to start the year

Jarvis: Got brisket on the list! Was planning on making it last week but superstore had a super-sad selection of meat. Trying again later this month

Stef: Thank you so much for the nice comment. It made my day. Sorry that you lost a friend too, hope that the new year brings lots of happiness :)

Amanda: Exciting! Can't wait to stalk your instagram

Erika- Southern Souffle

Love this.The blogroll thing is the hardest for me to keep up with. Trying to do better in 2014. :) Happy New Year!

erin @ yummy supper

Stephanie, what a full year you had! I like your good and bad list idea - what a great way to mark the passing of time.
I hope 2014's list is as rich and varied as 2013's and that you're goals are met!


Erika- I'm already behind and it's only the first week into the year :(

Erin: Thank you so much!


Sounds like you had some really wonderful times in 2013! And I am SO glad to hear that Chloe has made a full recovery - that's all so scary (we avoid kennels too at this point). Cheers to 2014!


Ashley: Lots of good times in 2013! And we're all glad that Chloe is recovering nicely. It's too bad about the kennel because it was a really nice place outside of the city with lots of big outdoor dog runs. She enjoyed going and playing with the other dogs. Happy 2014 to you too!

Hilarious that it took you this long to post your January reflection. I have actually shelved my yearly food trends post. :) But, I am glad you didn't shelve this. Love the format of good, bad and goals. Great good stuff. I am a pet lover and particularly a dog lover - so my heart broke when your kitty died. Broke. I am so so so sorry - and thankful you had each other to love for so long. And my G! Your poor pooch! What a trooper, and is he ever lucky to have you as a care giver. That must be an attached at the hip relationship by now.
And the kitchen - ? Have a reno party weekend. Assign tasks to teams. Create a friendly competitive environment. Invite the press - that weekend City Tv for example - and get sponsors to award prizes to the team that does the best work in the least amount of time. Of course, you will need judges... but - make a party out of it. If I lived there, I would definitely be in for a little weekend team work. Happy 2014... and great goals!
And cheesemaking was part of the good, too... I recall... how fast we forget important triumphs!
