What new food discoveries did you make this year? Could be a recipe, or just some new food.<br><br>
This year, I discovered:<br>
How to make my own fresh ginger for sushi. It's easy and tastes a lot better than the stuff I'd been buying. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
Field Roast Frankfurters. YUM!!!<br><br>
And tonight, for the first time I had Sukhi's Vegan Samosas. I found them on sale for $5. I need to stock up, because they are <i>good</i>. The chutney that comes with them tastes amazingly fresh.<br><br>
Find anything new you like? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Mock duck- Never tried it before because it scared me and I had no previous experience eating the real thing (thank the FSM). I'm glad I gave it a shot, turns out it's really good.<br><br>
Artichoke Hearts- Sadly I am still intimidated by fresh artichokes but since I discovered jarred marinated chokes , I'm addicted.<br><br>
Gardein Beefless Tips- I finally found out what why people go crazy over these things.<br><br>
Spaghetti Squash- delicious and fun to prepare

I also learned how to make an awesome 3-bean chili, mock tuna salad with chickpeas and homemade tapenade.

I also made root beer cupcakes...I have a bad feeling about this thread. See, 365x3=1215 meals (breakfast,lunch, and dinner) not including snacks and desserts, and missed meals...I'm going to be coming back to this.

I definitely had some amazing baking experiences last year. Chai latte cupcakes spring to mind immediately. They were amazing.

Veggies & Dumplings - it was my first time making dumplings and worth all the work.<br><br>
While in Pittsburgh in December I had the best pizza though, Little E's is a must stop if you're ever visiting.

New to me in 2011 (listed in the order of favorite to least fav):<br><br>
1. Leahey Foods cheese powder (for making mac 'n cheese)<br>
2. Match (name brand) meats - but the store has since quit selling them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br>
3. Tofurky Bologna<br>
4. Sriracha (hot sauce)<br>
5. Cadbury Drinking Chocolate (hot chocolate powder)<br>
6. Don Lee Farms Veggie Patties<br>
7. Alexia Beer Battered Onion Rings<br>
8. Gardein Beefless Burger<br>
9. Tofurky Smokey Maple Bacon Tempeh<br>
10. World Maket Dark Chocolate Spread (kind of like Nutella)<br>
11. Tofurky pizzas<br>
12. Gardien Stuffed Turk'y<br><br>
As for 2012, I just picked up Tofurky Roast Beef style deli meat. I have not seen it before yesterday, so it is new to me. Previously, I have only seen Oven Roasted, Hickory Smoked and Peppered flavored deli meats. I can't comment on it because I haven't cracked open the package yet.
