My Foodie Bucket List

I’m not much into New Years Resolutions but I can make lists like a mad woman. I’m also a huge believer of setting goals. I’ve set the bar pretty high in my opinion for several items on my Foodie Bucket List this year. Some (like the Rose Cake) make me incredible nervous but I absolutely love a challenge. I can’t wait to start scratching things off the list! If I know me though, I’ll probably add something every time I cross something off. πŸ™‚ Are any of these on your foodie bucket list? Have you already made any of the things on my list? I’d love to hear any tips, pointers or recipes that you love!

My Bucket list for 2012, in no particular order:


Rose Cake (I want to make this for my birthday!)

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Sushi (I’ve made it in class, time to duplicate it at home!)

Fresh Caramels

Homemade Ravioli

Braided Bread

Candied Bacon



Focaccia Bread

Braised Short Ribs

Homemade Bar B Que Sauce

Homemade Pickles

Homemade Marshmallows

Carve a Watermelon

That’s all for now! Looks like I’ve got plenty of work to do. πŸ™‚

    The Peter Reinhart foccacia recipe in my blog is SO good! Try it! I also have a braised short rib recipe in there that was one of the best things I made last year, by far. Good luck with your bucket list!

    I am also a crazy list girl (like, almost in OCD fashion), and this looks great! I have pickles and sushi on my 12 in ’12 list as well πŸ™‚ Good luck, and I can’t wait to see your birthday cake – it’s going to be great!

    This is a great list! I made a similar one for myself this year. I tried the flour tortillas and they were amazing! Good luck!

  5. What a great list! I want to do a lot of the same things!

    I made the rose cake last fall and was so happy with how it came out. I used a carrot cake and it was seriously the prettiest carrot cake I have ever made!

    How fun, a bucket list for food. I might try this. I’ve made the homemade bar-b que sauce and loved it. This weekend is my try at Cannoli’s.

    I love this idea, and you inspired me to start a “30 Before 30” list. I’m also a list maker, so I know there is no better feeling than crossing something off! You’re well on your way, and I can’t wait to start my list with homemade flour tortillas! Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚
