I am definitely a ‘list’ person. If I have things written down somewhere I feel happy that I don’t have to keep them from falling out my ears! My handbag is full to the brim with bits of paper and post-it notes…

There are so many dishes I’ve been wanting to try, and a couple of dishes I have finally made, so I’ve decided to make a list and cross them off as I go. Hopefully one day I’ll be able to look back and say “cool, I did all that!” and not look back and say “wow, I was way too ambitious!” If you have any dishes you’ve always wanted to try, or you think would be a fun challenge, please add them in a comment!

All crossed off are posted on this site, unless marked as ‘pre-post’.

    Wow! Very brave to publish your list. I have one too, but it’s in Excel on my PC.
