Happy St Patrick's Day!

This is my first cake completed at the Wilton Cake Decorating Classes (Course 1, Lesson 2).  I'm actually pretty proud of it.  It's Chocolate Stout Cake filled with Chocolate Champagne Ganache (leftover from truffle making) and it's frosted in Buttercream.

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Culinary "To Make" List

I love lists!  They make me feel good when I cross things out, but more importantly, they help me remember.  In the back of my head I've always had a running list of things I want to make (or ingredients I want to use).  It wasn't until the other day when I told myself I really need to write my list down.  So here it is.  I'll add more items as I come up with them, and I'll mark things off as I make them. At some point, I want to make a spot on the blog that goes directly to this list so it's easier for me to check in and update.

NOTE:  The updated list can be found on it's own page now:  Culinary "To Make" List

What's on your culinary to do list?  What else should be on here that every Cooker Girl (or Boy) should know?  Basic stuff and more exotic suggestions are welcome.  Thanks for your input!
