I am one of those people who writes things down on tiny scraps of paper. I carry them around for a while and then lose them in a pile on my desk, or tucked in my pocket and sent through the washing machine. They are also sticking out from the pages of most of the cookbooks I own. Waaaaay back when, someone bought me a Palm Pilot with the idea that I could keep all my lists on it. I tried, but in the end the reason I loved the thing was that its carrying case was handy for holding tiny scraps of paper.
Often these notes are to-do lists, and when I’m in a cooking groove they are often lists of things I mean to cook. It’s funny, sometimes now I will come across a list from years ago, tucked deep in, say, the Lowfat Moosewood, and I will marvel at how much my tastes (and my cooking) have changed. But beyond that time-capsule function, it’s not that useful to write down lists and then lose them.
So here is my list. I will add to it as I come across items I’d like to try, and move things off as I get to them. Do you have favorites I should add to my list? Please share!

(This is what other people use Pinterest for, huh? I’m still figuring that out.)
