  1. I love your list – and don’t worry about feeling bad after the bread, just bake your own from scratch! No additives for a start, and secondly you won’t be eating it as undercooked as the ones in the shops are.
    Btw I’ll be using some beer tomorrow for my elderflower pancakes…but you can’t get much more fatty and unhealthy than that ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Oh I love it!

      Beer for Elderflower pancakes?! What kind of goddess are you?

      As for the bread, yes – I plan on baking it. I’ve seen some pretty good recipes on wordpress so now I just need an occasion to make it ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. First, I found your blog through you liking one of my posts, so thank you! Then I found your bucket list. I love this idea of a recipe bucket list, as I too have one, just never wrote it down, great idea!
    Second, I might be able to help you with 1 of your bucket list items. A few days ago I posted a recipe for Beer Bread on my blog here: http://freebiequeen72.wordpress.com/2014/06/28/beer-bread/ It’s super easy to make and delish, if I do say so myself. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Aw, thank you!
      I’m so glad you found my blog too and are inspired to post your own recipe bucket list.
      I will definitely take a look at your beer bread because that’ll combination alone with knock 2 items off my bucket list.

      Hope you keep checking me out. I’ll be doing the same ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Give a shot to rabbit with prunes and onions in a slow cooker. French fav and trad, great sweet and savoury balnce and you can adapt it really easily.
    Fantastic blog by the way, love it!

      1. In my experience, any pot with a top would do on low heat… check out “lapin aux pruneaux” recipes and you should get good recipes and great ideas to make them you own with a personal twist!

  4. Bugs? Emm, I might originally be from Borneo but personally, I draw the line at putting anything in my mouth if it’s still wriggling or falls within the broad category of genus or species. Now Octopus Ink Risotto, I like ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yes sir, indeed it is and I am not ready to tackle it yet.
      Mainly because I have to make a fairly costly investment to get the appropriate ‘chemicals’ before i can begin this exercise.
      What have you created from this?

  5. I’ve got a bucket list too, so much fun. Eat bugs is NOT on mine, lol. I have a French recipe with rabbit on my blog if you want ideas, there we have some! xx

  6. Hey girl, I have a fantastic recipe for Borracho beans that uses beer. I have converted those that are total bean haters with this recipe. I just came across a really great paleo banana bread that’s is all good for you,,, if you are interested in a tea type bread. I’d like to try some marrow too,,, you know,, BONE marrow,,, my soon to be ex-BF has been falling down on the job lately, can you tell? Lol,,

  7. I love how you’re crossing out items on your list. Most people just make a list and that’s that… so refreshing to see someone actually go through with their plans and put effort into making life better to live (at least, that is why I write lists; to do things that enhance my life that I wouldn’t otherwise do necessarily.) lol So the point is, good for you! ๐Ÿ˜€ I really suck at comments, apparently. :DD

    1. nah, you’re good. I understood what you were saying just fine so thank you for that!!
      It’s actually exciting, the opportunity to cross something off this list so yeah, I definitely try and keep with it just so I get to do that ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  8. Cook Salmon on a Cedar Plank? That sounds awesome! My mum eats LOADS of fish and she never misses the opportunity of preparing it for us when we go back home, but she never did it on a cedar plank! Would that change the taste of the salmon? Hoping you can manage to make it one day and looking forward to hear your experience.

    1. It gives it a sort of woody/smoky taste but it’s not dramatic or overwhelming.
      I most def intend to make it, will let you know when I do too โค
      Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and leave such a warm comment ๐Ÿ™‚
      xxoo

  9. This is a brilliant idea – I’ll have to get to thinking. Definitely would make cooking (and eating) more interesting. Although I’d have to discount the meaty options, being veggie!

  10. I’m planning to build a smokehouse so smoking meat is way up on my list! And does swallowing a bug because you’re laughing and it flies in your mouth count? Pork belly! ‘Nuff said.

Go on, get it out..
