Recipe Hits and Misses for January

Not much to blog about food-wise here. Between sick kids and activities, I've been keeping it pretty simple at dinner time. My oldest stayed home yesterday with a stomach virus and I hate to whomp up a nice meal when someone is feeling nauseous - it just seems cruel!

Since there's not much new and exciting going on, it seems like a good time to look back on January. Over at the CLBB, there is often a post each month where everyone lists their hits and misses. Most people just list the new recipes they tried, but some people include their tried and trues too - I'm just listing the new recipes we tried, though it might be fun to keep track of tried and trues too.

All in all, we tried 23 new recipes this month (though I didn't include all 23 here - some are works in progress):

Excellent (definite repeaters)
