{Adventures in the Kitchen : To Do List}

You may have noticed I have been baking a bit more recently. a lot of this is to do with this world of cooking/baking blog challenges I have found. I have really started to love the push to try something new (if you know of anymore let me know! I try and fit them in but I struggle at times, but its nice to plan!)


This got me thinking of some things I have always wanted to try in the kitchen but not got round to. Maybe making a list will give me the push to give it a go. Worth a shot right?

  1. Bread. I have made one loaf in the past, it was not amazing. I would really like to try and master this skill - try baking bread rolls, focaccia and other types of bread. Any tips greatly taken. I have plenty of books which cover the subject just always been a bit scared.
  2. Macaroons. I adore these, never made these (people say they are difficult right?. However I really want to try and make them. Again I am scared....
  3. Meringues. I know I know. This is not difficult, but it is just something I have never made.
  4. Pasta. Ok so you can buy pasta easily I know that. However I would like to attempt to make my own at least once. DO you really need a pasta machine to make it?
  5. Pastry. All types - I have never made a pie or a tart  - therefore I would like to make both.
  6. Profiteroles. Well I cross these off my list. Whooop!!
  7. Jam. Savoury and Sweet - I love chili jam.
  8. Tart Tatin. I love the look of this.
  9. Roulade / Swiss Roll. Oh how I love thee.
  10. Two tier cake (at least)
Well there it is my hit list of kitchen adventures. Do you have any? Anything you think I should add?

Happy days.
