Most of the time I’m in the kitchen I’m creating recipes from scratch. It’s what I love to do more than anything in the world (aside from maybe photography). Recipe development brings me a tremendous amount of joy and I love the creativity involved. But I have a secret.
Sometimes I just want to follow a recipe and enjoy someone else’s hard work. The problem with creating recipes from scratch is that they often fail and I have nothing to show for my hard work except for frustration. Earlier this week I attempted to make homemade frozen yogurt for the first time in my ice cream maker and it turned into a solid block of yogurt ice. Sometimes the cookies have a weird taste or the sauce breaks or the cake collapses. I just choose to not blog about these incidents.
As a food blogger, it’s my job to make recipes look easy and carefree so you can relax and enjoy. And every now and then I want to do the same thing. I want to pick up a tried and true recipe that someone else has created and know that the results will be wonderful. On those days, I often turn to my fellow blogger friends. Last week I wanted a muffin that was easy on the waistline but that still tasted sweet and sinful. Instead of creating a new recipe I hopped over to Sally’s Baking Addiction to peruse her recipe index. I immediately settled on her Skinny Double Chocolate Chip Muffins. I had everything already in my kitchen and they were so incredibly easy to prepare. These muffins were moist, light and full of chocolate awesomeness. I will be making them again many more times and I highly recommend that you give them a try.
