Stuff to Try

Over the past few months, I’ve bookmarked, saved, and e-mailed myself a number of recipes that I’ve wanted to try.  These recipes have come from a number of sources — newspapers, friends, and the ever-growing stack of cookbooks atop my countertop, adorned with a veritable kaleidoscope of Post-It flags.

To help organize this ever-expanding list of recipes – and to solicit the ideas and suggestions of my faithful readers – I’ve created this new page.  Please feel free to add your favorite recipes in the comments!

  1. Hey Im from Bulgaria! I saw in your list Banitsa, let me know when you make it, I will be happy to see your creation. Nice man foodie blog, by the way 🙂

  2. Oh my, Jalepeno Grilled Cheese Sandwiches… I’ve never thought of those before. I’m gonna have to stick around a while. Love, love, love your recipes. I may have to do something similar to keep track of mine, too. I create the biggest messes in the kitchen and my cookbooks are all thrashed. LOL!

  3. I love your website, All it needs is a place to save the recipies we’d like to try out. Even have a little home page for each person where they can edit a few things here and there. All of us busy mom’s or anyone that likes to cook would apriciate knowing we have a cooking home page 🙂

  4. What a great idea! I will have to see if my some-what limited computing abilities can figure out how to make that happen!
