Culinary Bucket List
I was inspired to create this page after visiting the blog “Things K Likes,” http://thingskaylikes.wordpress.com/, and viewing her page, “Baking Bucket List.” What a fun idea!
My “Culinary Bucket List” is an ever-changing recitation of sweet, sour, saucy, and scrumptious recipes that I would love to try making at home. Some of these items are foods I have tried elsewhere. A few are decadent recipes, and others are a little weird.
I might be guilty of watching too many episodes of television shows like “Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern.” I plead the fifth.
