The Soy-free Kitchen tries The Sweet 100

If you have been reading this blog, you may have gotten the idea that the Soy-free Kitchen is run by a gourmande--and you would be right. If you need proof, keep reading.

This list comes from, which is not a cooking site, but an eating site--they review bakeries--although there are some recipes on it. The photography is wonderful and quirky. In any case, the list seems to have become a meme on several other sites, so here goes:

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.
[because I can't figure out how to cross out, I'm going to bracket]
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!
