My Top 100

Have you ever looked through all of your cookbooks in one night and realized how many delectable looking treats and breads have been right at your finger tips, some for almost 15 years, and you have yet to make them? That’s what I experienced last night. So, I decided that I am going to make a list of my top 100 things that I would like to make/bake/cook so that I have something to refer to when I’m twiddling my thumbs some afternoon deciding what I’d like to bake. To be honest I guess I went over 100 by just a few, but that’s pretty good considering how cookbook photographers make you drool over each and every recipe. (A few of these items I’ve made before, but I’d like to try a new variety this time around.)
