30 by 30

Today is my 29th birthday! I wanted to do something special to mark the last year in my 20's and a bucket list was the way to go! I have seen a couple of bloggers make 30 by 30 lists and I thought it would be perfect. It is a way to push me to make some things that I have been putting off or just have never gotten around to.

It was fun putting the list together and it took A LOT of thinking. If I see something I want to make or there is a technique I want to try, I usually just jump right on it. It took some time to come up with a good list of 30 things that would be fun!

The list is definitely full of variety! Some things are difficult and I chose them in order to work on a special skill. Some things are easy and just something I want to try. Some are things that have been on my to-do list for quite a while and this was the push I needed to finally get them done.

This is going to be a fun year filled with lots of good food! I hope you'll stick around and watch me chip away at this list!

Happy Birthday sweet friend!!! What is coq au vin? I would like to be there for tamales, beef wellington, and paella (but can you make it a seafood paella?) Oh and Boston creme pie. Is that to many for me to ask for? (ps I also love baklava but with out nuts which I'm pretty sure defeats the purpose!) Happy 29th girl have a great day!

Happy 29th! My mouth is watering just reading your list. I have a couple of great risotto recipes if you don't already have one bookmarked. I wish I could be there to taste them all!
