The new year brings a fresh start and new challenges — especially in the kitchen. We asked you via Twitter what recipes you wanted to learn to cook this year, and there were a few common themes. Perhaps you’ve stumbled on some 2011 cooking trends — could 2011 be the year of Pad Thai? Risotto? Here are a few of our favorite tweets, and some recipes to get started on your culinary goals.

We love asking you what you’re cooking and we never tire of reading your responses. Many of you are grilling for Memorial Day weekend, and not just burgers and ‘dogs — over on Facebook you’re talking about hickory grilled spareribs, whole butterflied chicken injected with jalapeno butter, bacon-wrapped shrimp, sweet potatoes, grilled pizza, Coca-Cola baby back ribs, corn on the cob, peaches and pineapple (served with ice cream, we presume).
And to our fans who report broken grills or thunderstorms in the forecast, we’re truly sorry! The weekend’s not lost though, you can still grill inside like Bobby.
We also shared Food Network Mag’s 50 bonus burger recipes on Facebook and you topped our ideas with dozens of your own — feta-stuffed burgers, seafood burgers, burgers topped with mango and jack cheese and turkey burgers with pesto. But major props go to Missi H. who made 5 of the 50 burgers so far. Let us know when you get to 50!
Twitter talk on Thursday was all about lemons, and it turns out you love lemon bars as much as we do. We shared our favorite tips, like rolling lemons on the counter before squeezing for more juice, and you offered a suggestion back: microwaving them for 5 seconds to soften them for even more juice.
