Cooking Bucket List

A few years ago, I started a blog (not this one). It was called Measuring Spoons and Mixing Bowls, and I used it only to post recipes. Mostly because I wasn't actually doing any kind of workouts. It went really well for a while, then I lost motivation. One thing I'm going to steal from it is my unfinished bucket list of things I want to cook/bake. I've actually crossed off some things since I posted it two years ago, which is a nice feeling. (I love crossing things off lists!) Although in the way it's posted below, instead of crossing it off, I've included a link to the recipe I used for anything I've made. Maybe not quite as satisfying, but a bit more informative.

I will keep adding to this list (both to cross things off and to add more things to try)

Here it is:
* Souffle (savory and sweet)
* Pate a choux pastry
* Profiteroles with above pastry
