28 by 28

My cooking ability has come a long way since I first started this blog over three years ago. The first year of our marriage, the Mister and I survived solely on frozen tamales and corn dogs. My uncle's jabs that the only things I could make were toast and boiled water weren't terribly far from the truth. Although the learning curve has been steep at times (see exhibits A and B), I am now more comfortable in the kitchen than I ever thought possible.

In about 15 months, I will be turning 28. In anticipation of the occasion, I've put together a list of 28 foods I'd like to tackle in the coming months. I hope you enjoy this journey with me!
