Inspiration

Do you ever read a blog and then what they say triggers a memory later. I think I spend too many hours perusing the web for new recipes and looking at as many blogs as I can. I think that being in front of a computer all day doesn't hurt either. All of the blogs I look at really inspiring to think people, ordinary people create these delicious recipes. I have folders full of print outs to try I am slowly making my way through them but I have a problem where if I make something that I like or P likes I make it again when I should be trying something new so in the name of trying something new I picked a few recipes from some blogs I like.

First Almond Breakfast Cake from Alpine Berry

The only thing I changed was I added more almond extract about 1 tsp. This cake is fantastic and her story about having the heavy cream was what triggered me to making it as I also had alot of heavy cream left over. I tend to get abitious and purchase perishable ingredients and then have to figure out how to use them up.


Second Key Lime Coconut Blondies by Culinary Concoctions by Peabody

I made these just as directed they taste more like coconut than key lime. At our local fruit market they had a 2 lb bag of key limes on sale for 88 cents so Im sure I will be trying to come up with something else to use them in. But let me tell you that trying to juice key limes was not easy. These were beautifully soft and tender and I love coconut so I also like the taste. Just not very key limey.
