It's hard to resist the temptation to make New Year's resolutions. Next year, you'll eat more greens, wake up to see the sunrise, spend more time visiting family, and keep up with the news. But hey, that sounds eerily similar to what you were going to do this year, doesn't it?

Finally, we've come up with a resolution you can keep: In 2014, you're going to be a better baker. With a little help from baking expert Alice Medrich, you're going to make the best whipped cream of your life. You're going to bake cookies in big batches without get frustrated. You're even going to melt white chocolate without scorching it.

Along the way, you're going to save time and money, splurge where it counts, and eat more chocolate. Because who says eating more chocolate can't be a legitimate New Year's resolution?
