Mighty Make-From-Scratch List or Mondo Beyondo Cooking Edition


I love lists. I enjoy making lists and they make me feel half accomplished. I also love organizing lists, Things To do, Life Lists, Things to do in year 2010, Places to go to, etc. I also have a list of things I’d love to someday make/cook/bake. So. In the tradition of Maggie’s Mighty List and as an extension of my Mondo Beyondo List, here’s my ever growing list of things I want to make from scratch — without harming anyone in the process, and with results that are actually edible, worth repeating, and most especially, non-toxic:

  1. Croissants
  2. Turkish Delight
  3. Puff Pastry
  4. Oreos
  5. Mozzarella Cheese
  6. Other homemade Soft Cheese
  7. Lavash
  8. Sourdough Starter
  9. Fruit Leather
  10. Peanut Butter Cups (with homemade peanut butter)
  11. Canned Fruit Jams
  12. Ratatouille
  13. Graham Crackers
  14. Fortune Cookies
  15. Baked Donuts (it was a fail this past January)
  16. Authentic Black Forest Cake
  17. Chinese Congee
  18. A failed attempt at baked donuts at the beginning of 2010. It was nothing close to a donut, except for the shape.

    The next items on the list are Filipino dishes and delicacies.

  19. Sans Rival
  20. Puto (Filipino Steamed Rice Cake)
  21. Puto Bumbong (Filipino Steamed Sticky Rice Cake cooked in bamboo tubes)
  22. Sapin-sapin
  23. Ube Halaya
  24. Bibingka
  25. Pastillas
  26. Bopis
  27. Cassava Cake
  28. Pichi-pichi
  29. Sisig

This are just the ones off the top of my head. I’ll add more to this when I have time. :

Here are the things I’ve already crossed out since I’ve started this blog:

Mamon, Marshmallows, Scones, Flaky pie crust, Palitaw (Filipino boiled rice cakes), Filipino Empanada, Food For the Gods, Igado, Frozen Yogurt, Macarons, Biscotti, Raw Cake, Kinder Surprise Eggs, Homemade Pasta and Lasagna, Vegetable Stock, Roast Turkey, Neapolitan Style Pizza Crust, Wine Lollipops

Care to share YOUR Mighty Make-From-Scratch OR Cooking/Bakings lists? C’mon now. :) Maybe we can all share recipes and techniques to get through each others lists. I’d love to cross out at least 10 off mine by the end of this year!

    I want to figure out a recipe for from scratch condensed tomato soup. Congee is super easy — I make it in the slow cooker.

      Mmm…on that note, I actually want to make homemade ketchup, too!!! I’ve yet to get to liking the slow cooker. I would like to learn the traditional way of cooking it, but I have to find a Chinese mother somewhere who can cook it when I can watch. Haha.

    So I think I might be able to convince the wifey for a recipe trade. I really want sans rival; I’m in a meeting right now and the second I read that my stomach started calling out for it.

      YAY, YAY! Will my Goldilocks Mocha cake recipe suffice as a fair trade? I want to make sans rival, too! Don’t know what I want to die of butter, but I have a a Nora Daza recipe here somewhere. I’m almost tempted to go to Goldilocks to grab some SR this weekend.
