It’s hard not to feel like you get a clean slate to start fresh in January. Everything that we think needs a makeover comes to the forefront — and eating habits are one of the most common things we aim to change in the new year (and as parents, it’s a goal that’s not just about us). Even our top 100 food bloggers have areas of their kitchen expertises that they’d like to improve, whether it’s vowing to order take-out less, or trying out a totally new technique (homemade cheese, anyone?).
If you’re starting out 2013 feeling uninspired in the kitchen, or just feel like you could use a new culinary challenge, read what some of Babble’s Top 100 Food Bloggers had to say about their new yums — er, New Year’s — resolutions.

Cut back on caffeine
To kick the caffeine. I actually went without caffeine (other than the amounts in chocolate) for about 9 years until last year when we were going through so much craziness with my husband's busy travel schedule as a professional skydiver. Between various health issues with the kids, school, and a husband who is at work and traveling seemingly all the time, I started drinking A LOT of caffeine. I know I would feel better without it, but of course, feel like I can't function without it. My goal is to find a way to get the nutrition and rest I need to be able to get away from drinking so much caffeine!
