I can’t believe it, readers. I’m thirty today. How in the world did that happen? It feels like just yesterday I was ponying up to the bar to order my first legal drink on my 21st birthday! My how things change. For the better, I might add. I’m so happy now and can only see my life getting even better. What a great feeling!
My life’s going to get tastier, too. I’ve decided that this year, to celebrate being thirty, I’m going to make all thirty items on this list. Some things I chose as challenges. Some were chosen because I want learn certain, specific techniques. I chose a couple because I want to find the ultimate recipe. And some were chosen because they have sentimental value to me.
I can’t wait to get started on these recipes. I hope you’ll enjoy my work, as well!
