I'm not one to make any resolutions when a new year is upon us, but this year I decided to make an intention. Who knows if intentions are that much different to resolutions, but I tell myself they are...hahaha. My intention for 2022 is to be less wasteful, particularly when it comes to food. Before the pandemic I was always binning food that had expired or was spoiled. Often times it was because I'd forgotten about it or was just too lazy to cook or bake.

January 6 marks Epiphany (sometimes called Three King's Day) in the Catholic faith. When I was a student living in Dijon I came to learn that the French celebrate this holiday by enjoying galette des rois throughout the month. Because I've already made that puff pastry and frangipane treat before I wanted to try my luck at making this Mardi Gras King Cake from Murmurs of Ricotta's blog. This year Mardi Gras falls on March 1st, but King Cake can be enjoyed starting at Epiphany.
