Culinary Adventures

Everyone probably has a “bucket list” of things they want to do before they kick it. I’m currently developing mine in the area of culinary adventures, and I felt I should post it here to hold myself accountable. After all, peer pressure is a great motivator. Below is my current Culinary Bucket List of things I have to eat. I also love a culinary challenge, so I’ll be adding to my list of items I’d like to learn to cook/bake before I go. Stay tuned!
