Whether you like to admit it or not, you're probably thinking about making some changes in the New Year. We know we are, starting with cracking open the oven more and the freezer less. Oh, and actually using that gym membership we fork out for every month . . .

But if you're looking for a few more interesting New Year's resolution ideas from some the Valley's culinary stars, we've got those, too.

T. Cook's

I've been an avid mountain biker for years, but since moving to Arizona, I haven't seen nearly enough single-track, so my New Year's resolution is to ride at least three times a week and hit every trail in the Phoenix area!"

Sacha Levine
Quiessence at The Farm at South Mountain

My resolution (aside from the obvious: drink more, eat more, and work more) has totally been sparked by Backyard Jamboree. I have witnessed many of our guests getting to know each other via food and drink. Phoenix is so distant, that it's rare to find our little pockets of culture and community. Because breaking bread is such a grand way to bring people together, in 2014 I resolve to fill the empty seats at community tables.

Citizen Public House, The Gladly

As a proud pop of two, my New Year's resolution is to do a better job of spending equal time between my two babies (Citizen Public House and The Gladly). I don't want to be seen as one of those dads who plays favorites! Cheers!
