New Year's Resolutions 2011

Every year Kevin and I make a list of goals that we would like to accomplish as a family, individual and as a couple.  Sometimes they are health goals, financial goals, etc.
This year our family goal is to sell our house and build our dream home.  We have been working so hard to make this happen, we painted all of the upstairs and moved Makenzie back into her room so we now have a bonus room again.  The house is on the market and we signed the paperwork to build our house!  All very exciting news.
One of my personal goals is to be more creative in my cooking and try new recipes because I tend to get stuck in a rut with my cooking so my new goal for 2011 is to try 1 new recipe each and every week, unless we are on vacation!  So, hopefully by the end of the year we will have tried at LEAST 52 new recipes!  Help me out and pass on your favorites.
So the first new recipe that we tried this year was Iny's Prune Cake by the Pioneer Woman

Here's the recipe
