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.
