  2. This is such a great idea!! I have a Rosemary Focaccia recipe on my blog that is amazing and easy! Might help you knock one off the list 🙂

  3. nice list.

  4. I have a list much like this, only it’s not nearly as organized as your’s. I may also borrow your idea and organize myself, which might make it easier for me to get through my wish list of recipes!

  5. Fabulous idea!

  6. I love this bucket list

  7. I love this idea too, I might have to write myself one..

  8. Hi there! Thanks for visiting my blog, i love your food bucket list! Haven’t seen a section like that before!

  9. I love the idea of a food bucket list!! Maybe as part of my new year food resolution I shall make one for myself too!

  10. Hi Elly, What a brilliant idea to have a food bucket list! I worry that if I start one I’ll keep adding to it FOREVER though and never actually find time to make anything! You’ve got Irish Soda Bread on there – it is super-easy. In fact, I wrote a blog post about it for St Patrick’s Day last month. You can find it at Easiest Bread Recipe. Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi Elly,

    This is an amazing list. And I loved the concept too, may be in future I will adopt this idea from you. Nevertheless, in this list I saw the BBQ sauce too. I recently made a home-made smoky BBQ sauce without liquid smoke. If you feel like you can find it on my blog and definitely try this one out –

    I hope you like the recipe!
