I asked several of my friends, foodie and otherwise, on Twitter if they had any New Year’s resolutions that involved food. Sure eating less and losing weight turned up in their responses, but so did a whole lot more. See what chefs, bloggers, real estate agents and more are resolving to change about their food in 2010.
