Last year I reached out to everyone on my e-mail list to see what they wanted me to make next. Wooden bowls took the lead, and larger cutting boards came in a close second. Because I don't have a lathe (and that's what you need to make wooden bowls), I took the liberty of starting on some large cutting board designs. Here is what I have going so far. The new shapes are 10" x 10", 10" x 15", and 12" x 18". Here's a quick peak into the future...

the tip
After you drain pasta, when it's still really hot, throw some freshly grated Parmesan on it before adding your sauce. The Parmesan sticks to the noodles, your sauce sticks to the Parmesan and you have yourself a tasty dish!

Thanks to everyone for entering your new year's resolutions to enter the last giveaway. You all come from very different backgrounds and are most likely all in very different spots in your lives. Even so, there were some very common themes that ran through your resolutions. I guess we're all a lot alike in the end. Reading through all of them made me realize that the inner workings of my brain and personality are fairly common! The most popular resolutions were:
- health related (eat better, lose weight, exercise more, cook more)
- relationship related (be kind to yourself, be kind to others, be a better friend)
- goal oriented (start a business, accomplish a big task, finish something you've been putting off)
I hope that answering that question reminded you of your resolutions if you had already forgotten and helped you get back on the horse! Good luck to you and your journeys!
