I love making lists, and moreover, I love crossing things off my lists! It’s a great way of setting goals for yourself, whether it’s a list of things to get done over the weekend, a grocery list, or even a list of lifetime goals.
I’ll be 30 in a little over a year, and in an attempt to broaden my cooking proficiency, I made a “bucket list” of sorts; I’ve compiled a list of 30 things I’d like to make before I turn 30. I ran out of steam about halfway through, so I asked for suggestions. I’ll cross things off as I go, so you can follow along to make sure I’m on track to meet my goal! Please share any recipes, tips, or tricks you have for any of my list items.
