@mouse: I’m right there with you with the need to find some simple everyday recipes. If we don’t figure out what we’re having for dinner ahead of time, we end up either going out or getting takeout. Probably not a great long-term solution!

I am with Mouse and Dewdrop- recently I’ve been making an awesome baked chicken and summer salad- peaches and heirloom tomatoes anyone? With homemade dressing.

I was talking about needing new recipes for simple food to a friend and she recommended the Food Made Fast series from William Sonoma or the Cooking with Friends book.

I love to bake but I’ve never tried to make bread. So once it starts to cool off around here and it’s not too hot to have the oven on in our non airconditioned house, I’m going to try it out. I’m hoping we’ll get the Kitchen Aid mixer with the dough hook to make it a little easier.

I love to bake, but my cakes are always lacking the decorating department. I’d love to take one of the Wilton Cake decorating classes at Michael’s.

I’ve recently been trying to perfect some semi-authentic mexican dishes for Fiance. He and his bro love Mole Chicken. But they say I’m stereotyping them by only cooking Mexican food. Um…I love mexican, why can’t I make what I want?

I’m also working on cake decorating.

@mariapaz – we actually made pain a l’ancienne last week!  Mr. BC LOVES to make it – it’s super straight forward, and DELICIOUS (you’ll never want pan batido again!  ONLY PAIN A L’ANCIENNE!!)

Mmm… breadmaking. I’ll have to give that a whirl this winter.

There are two things I can never get right: tofu and cornbread. My grandmother made awesome cornbread and just had a “feel” for it, but mine never turns out. My mom says it’s because I don’t use bacon grease and I don’t have a good skillet.

If I could get my tofu not to be mushy that would really help me expand my menus.

I’d like to start breadmaking too. my dad has a bread machine and im so jealous.

I’d also like to get the hang of making full meals (not just throwing sides in at the last minute)

Homemade marshmallows. They taste way better than store-bought, especially when they’re super-fresh. But making them isn’t the easiest thing in the world. I ended up with a sugary mess all over my stovetop the first time. Practice makes perfect, though. I want to cut them in cute little shapes and give them as gifts or favors.

@mary-alice-me   try freezing your tofu til you use it… it helps make it have that ‘chewy’ taste that it always has at restaurants, not ‘mushy’ like it gets at home.

AAAANNND.  Now I’m hungry.   Thanks.  ;p
You’re definitely not helping my wedding diet.

But in the spirit of things, I’d like to perfect my homemade pasta.  It’s good, but it’s not quite GREAT.

I want to start taking cake decorating classes and making the fun cupcakes (my friend has a cupcake book, Hello Cupcake! that has a ton of really cute ideas)
