Morning glory muffins
I was just thinking to myself- what is the difference between a recipe I find in a blog and a recipe that I come across in some general food site? The answers were very clear. When I see it in a blog, I know for sure, there is someone just like me, who has tried and tested it and in case I face any problems with the recipe, there is always someone to fallback on. The great degree of interaction and support is what makes it so different from just another food website.
Each day I come across many inspiring recipes. Some I just admire from a distance, probably because I’m vegetarian and the recipe is not. Some, I wish I could make – but the ingredients’ availability factor is a setback. Some I actually end up making (read that as quite a few ).
Two such recipes that I made last week (with a little modification ofcourse ) were inspired from two wonderful food blogs that I came across recently.
–Morning glory muffins from Kitchen culture by Zoubida in Canada
–Basic tart shell recipe from My French Cuisine by Estelle in Sunnyvale, CA
I loved both the blogs for their simplicity and clarity of instructions.
