30 Before 30: The Recipe To Do List REVISED!

I may have just finished my 30 Before 30: Recipe To Do List! Wait. Hang on. Let me rephrase that. I may have just finished WRITING my Recipe To Do List. Hah. Let's not get ahead of ourselves!

You may remember, I left off at number 24 with room to spare. I've come up with a few additions here and there, but haven't added them yet b/c what's the point of blogging one little list entry at a time? We'll we're ready now. Here is the COMPLETE list (with a few revisions):

  1. Mocha Crepe Cake
  2. Braised Short Ribs
  3. Tiramisu (formerly Red Velvet Funnel Cake*, but I'm feeling a more urgent need for the Tiramisu right now)
  4. Chocolate-Covered Caramel Pretzel Cupcakes (I'm excited for this one, and you should be too!)*
  5. Meyer Lemon Tart
  6. Ginger-infused Limoncello*
  7. Croissants, from scratch
  8. Chocolate Babka
  9. Gordon Ramsey's Raspberry Souffle
  10. S'more Cookie Bars
  11. My own version of Petit Fours*
  12. French 75 cocktail
  13. Blackberry Champagne Baklava (Yeah, sounds good, right?)*
  14. Ina Garten's Scalloped Tomatoes
  15. Mini fruit-filled Kiss Pies (only, w/out using Hershey Kisses. Yuck...)
  16. Cuban Potato Balls (inspired by this on Oh Joy!)
  17. Caramel Stout Frosting*
  18. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake (I'll probably end up altering this, too)
  19. Homemade gnocchi
  20. Vietnamese Coffee
  21. Crunchy crust ice cream bars
  22. Ice Cream. Possibly peanut butter... or something...
  23. Beef Wellington
  24. Mini Grilled Cheese on a Stick
  25. Lemongrass Ginger Soda… or popsicles. Whichever comes first.
  26. Biscuit Beignets with Strawberry Sauce
  27. Upside-down cake (pineapple? peach?)
  28. Dinner rolls—good, yeasty, delicious ones—from scratch.
  29. Madeleines
  30. Blondies (I know, so simple, but it's been YEARS) or Chocolate Pots de Creme... I can't decide
I've already made the French 75 cocktail, and I have a peach upside-down cake ready to blog so I'm off to a good start! But the REAL question is: am I happy with this? Sure, I think so. At least for now. I can always change it... right? But I promise, I'll only change it if it's something I really want to make—I won't cheat!
