Below is a list of dishes I want to learn/attempt to make. They may seem elementary or basic to some of you readers out there, while to others, they may seem ambitious. Nonetheless, this just shows you the extent of my culinary skills. I’m sure there are some dishes that I’ve left out, but this is a start and should keep me busy in the kitchen for a while. And any recommendations of good recipes for any of these dishes would be greatly appreciated!
Taiwanese salt and pepper chicken
beef brisket curry
crab with black bean sauce
salt and pepper shrimp
fish and chips
homemade pasta and sauce
sambal green beans√
pineapple fried rice√
Taiwanese noodle with meat sauce

Thanks so much for commenting on my blog. I really appreciate it and it helps me to find new blogs that have so much to offer.
Your blog is beautiful. I’ll definitely be revisiting.
Also, to help you out with this list, I have an amazing cheesecake recipe that you should check out. It’s really simple, no need for fancy kitchen gadgets, and it’s really tasty. I hope you enjoy and that you’ll be able to tick off another item on the list. http://minnybites.wordpress.com/2011/02/19/the-nuttiest-cheesebake-youll-never-bake/
thank-you for the kind words and the recipe! i made cheesecake once – it turned out a bit too dense and it cracked on top. 😦 i will definitely try your recipe. 🙂
The fantastic thing about this recipe is that you don’t bake it! It’s amazing 🙂
I can recommend an excellent ice cream recipe. It’s designed for peanut butter, but I adapted it for Speculoos (Biscoff) spread. Here’s a direct link to the recipe: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Peanut-Butter-Chocolate-Ripple-Ice-Cream-12032
and a list of my adaptations (it’s in Feb week 2) http://doctoratehousewife.wordpress.com/2012/03/06/gtnm-2012-recipe-experiments-so-far/
I’d recommend skim milk over whole, given how much fat is already in the peanut butter. Hope you like it. Also Annie’s Eats does a great pizza recipe.
thanks for the recommendations! i will have to give these recipes a try. 🙂
I have a few posts on risotto, a dish that I love more than anything. http://adamkapela.com/2011/11/26/risotto/
i’ve never made risotto before and would love to try, but i hear you need a lot of patience…something i don’t have. 😉
I also love pasta, maybe more than risotto!
I also have recipes and guidelines for making ravioli’s, Enjoy!
thanks! i will give it a go. 🙂
Looks like a great list! I LOVE pineapple fried rice – it’s the dish I indulge in whenever it’s on the menu!
have you tried making it? i did last week and it turned out quite well. 🙂 https://trialsinfood.wordpress.com/2012/03/30/a-new-recipe-a-new-look/
Hope you are enjoying your kitchen adventures. I checked your list of thing you want to cook … and would be delighted to help you with a few recipes.
Here’s what I’ve got … a yummy brie & sundried tomato omelet, traditional roast turkey, roast beef (does beef tenderloin work for you?), burger (how about a burger stuffed with goat cheese, grilled and topped with Sun-dried Tomato Aioli?), risotto (three kinds – mushroom, butternut squash and asparagus), pizza (Greek as wellas a a great mushroom flatbread), marinara, Bolognese and Puttanesca sauces, cheesecake (lemon with a gingersnap crust) and mac and cheese (two versions – one with bacon and roasted cauliflower and the other with lobster). If you are interested, I’ve got summer rolls but not spring rolls. Plus a whole lot more.
King Arthur Flour is a good source for recipes for homemade pasta and bread (http://www.kingarthurflour.com/).
You’ll find my blog at http://susannye.wordpress.com/ and the recipe index address is http://susannye.wordpress.com/recipe-index/.
Good luck and happy cooking – Susan
Oh wow, all those recipes sound so delicious! Thanks, Susan! I will definitely check out your blog. 🙂

This is how I make roast beef. http://funnyloveblog.com/2011/10/07/perfect-pot-roast/ I don’t tie the meat; instead, I let it fall apart and marry with the veg and sauce and it works PERFECTLY every time. Gift it a whirl, I hope you like it!
thanks! i will definitely give it a try. 🙂
So I have found this flour that I absolutely love to make waffles and sweet breads out of. It happens to be Gluten Free which would make people not want to try it but this flour is very, very, very good. The brand is Pamela’s – Baking and Pancake Mix.
thanks for the suggestion! i’ll have to give it a try. 🙂
Roast beef is an essential part of my cooking arsenal. I grew up on roast chicken every Friday, and beef for special occasions. There’s nothing like a roast rib of beef, on the bone. Tasty and impressive. Delia Smith is a British food goddess, and her website had a good, basic guide. http://www.deliaonline.com/how-to-cook/meat/how-to-roast-beef.html
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall know his stuff on this subject too. The River Cottage Meat Book is one of my most valuable possessions.
thanks for the resources! i’ll definitely check it out. 🙂
I am Italian, so I can help you out with the risotto etc. sorry can’t come over to the kitchen stove, but we can do a virtual risotto blog…. ciao
oh I would love an authentic Italian risotto recipe! please share! 🙂
I have a similar “things to cook” list as well! A few good suggestions I have for you:
thanks for the suggestions! i’ll definitely give them a go!
