Cookies on the Brain

I've got sweets on the brain, in my belly, on the kitchen counter, so I figured now would be a good time to post this meme!

1) Copy this list into your site, including the instructions!
2) Bold all of the sweets you've eaten--or make them a different type color.
3) Cross out any of them that you'd never ever eat.
4) Consider anything that is not bold or crossed out your "To Do" List.
5) Optional: Post a comment here linking to your results--or just post a comment letting us know how many you've tried, or what you're going to try next!

I got this list (and the instructions) here. She has links up to lots of these, so I checked out the ones I wasn't sure about and some recipes for those that I do want to try!

I might have to look most of these up (and I wonder how many different things have the same name, as some - like King Cake - seem to lend themselves to be used for more than one type).

I might have to pick your brain on some of these, and get recipes! Finally a food meme I can get my teeth into :P
