I’m home sick today, with nothing to do. Usually I just sleep in front of the TV if I’m sick….but we don’t own a TV anymore, alas. So I figured I’ll tackle one of my original goals of starting a blog – how to keep track of things I want to cook.

This list just keeps growing, thanks to a plethora of food blogs on my RSS feed. Which is searchable and great, but I think it will also be nice to have a list in one document to refer to when thinking “What do I want to make for dinner”. So here we go – this is what I have archived from Jan 1, 2009 through June 11, 2009. No doubt there will be more installments to come.

Pierce Street Vegetarian Chili from 101 Cookbooks. (Judging by the name, I think she lives in my ‘hood, weird.)

Salt Crusted Fingerling Potatoes from David Latt on the Bitten blog. Sounds incredibly simple.

Spicy Sweet Almonds from Joy The Baker. Also looks super easy, and I’ve been snacking on nuts and dried fruit quite a bit lately. This looks similar to my dear friends V+M’s almonds, who I should also bother for their almond recipe. (Sidenote – omg i love Joy the Baker. Beautiful pix, engaging writing, and good recipes. If she lived in SF I’d totally want to hang out and bake brownies with her.)

Francis Lam’s Baked Rice from The Wednesday Chef. Despite many attempts, I’m one of those folks who can only make rice decently using a rice cooker. I don’t quite get it. I usually delegate rice making (and vinagrette making) to J, but I know I need to master this. Baked rice may be the route.

S’mores Brownies from Joy the Baker. I need to order those vegan marshmallows first.

Buttermilk Biscuits, also from Joy the Baker. I’ve been trying to replicate the awesomeness of my mom’s buttermilk biscuits, but I can’t – even using my mom’s recipe.

Chana Punjabi from Heather Carlucci Rodriguezs via The Wednesday Chef. Indian food I can make using the spices I already own? GREAT!

Pan Fried Chickpea Salad from 101 Cookbooks. I love chickpeas, and I’m always looking for more ways to cook them.

Fast Scallion Pancakes from Bitten. A way to use up the leftover green onions I always seem to have.

Savory Cheesecake from the Chubby Vegetarian. I love sweets gone savory, so I’m curious to try this.

Requesón via The Wednesday Chef. Like ricotta, but with seville orange. This looks great spread on toast for breakfast.

Vegetarian Pasta Puttanesca from The Chubby Vegetarian. Lots of his recipes veer toward “meaty” veggie food, so I need to keep this in mind when I’m craving a bunch of protein!

Savory Bread Pudding with Roasted Tomatoes and Goat Cheese also from The Chubby Vegetarian. I love savory bread pudding. I make a great one with lots of mushrooms. This sounds delightful.

Paprika Cheddar Drop Biscuits from Joy The Baker. Back again on the biscuit train of thought…

Raspberry Lemon Chip Cookies from Erin Cooks. Adding in some raspberry & lemon flavors to beloved chocolate chip cookies sounds great.
