New Year’s resolutions can be hard to keep up with, especially when they’re a little overzealous. Whether you’re a fan of resolutions or not, we came up with one that everyone could set this year: Try something new.

That’s it! You can decide on the details. For example, maybe you’ll just try one new thing in 2023. Or maybe you’ll try one new thing every month, or every season. There’s no right or wrong way to set this goal. The fun part is just trying the new thing(s)!

Try a New Recipe

So many of us get stuck in a rut when it comes to meals, and usually for good reason. We have our favorite dishes, and there’s nothing wrong with knowing what we like! But trying a new recipe is an easy way to incorporate something new into this new year. And the best part is, trying a new recipe doesn’t mean trying a complicated recipe. It just means one that you haven’t tried before. Whether you’re in the mood to try a new dessert or make something random (like pickles or biscuits) just because you never have, do it!

Here are some recipe ideas to inspire you!

Try a New Wine

We love this one! See how easy trying something new can be? Next time you’re at the grocery store, pick up a wine you’ve never tried before—maybe it’s a new type or wine, or maybe it’s a new brand of wine. Either way, it’s new!

Even better than picking up a new wine at the store, stop by Robinette’s for a wine tasting! You can sample a variety of new-to-you wines, such as our homemade fruit and dessert wines.

Try a New Activity

A new year is a great time to try an activity you’ve never done before. This doesn’t mean you need to commit to a whole new hobby, just try something new once! Maybe you’ll love it and want to do it again, or maybe you’ll be glad you tried it. Check out these activities below.

  • Pickleball
  • Pottery making
  • Cooking classes
  • Bird watching
  • Canning
  • Coloring
  • Puzzles

We could share many more ideas on new things to try this year, but we’ll just leave you with a few more ideas!

So what new thing will you try first? Whatever you choose, have fun with it! We have a feeling you’ll get hooked on trying new things this year. If you haven’t visited our orchard before, we hope we make the list!
