Recipe Must Try List

              Recipe Must Try List

For years I have made to try list and worked on them periodically and then they get lost in the creases of my cookbooks or files of recipes.  As I mentioned in my recent post, Little Miss Mixture tagged the majority of the recipes in a current magazine.  In an effort to keep track of her request and broaden our recipe book, I have organized the list of recipes and added some of my own.  This will be a work in progress and I will add and to the list as I come across new recipes or types of food and drinks I want to try my hand at.  I will also provide a rating as to our thoughts in the post.
