Coconut Caramel Pineapple Cake Coconut Cream Pie With Caramelized Pineapple Coconut Cream Pie With Caramelized Pineapple And Whipped Topping 22
I used to do online searches looking for recipes and often I was left totally confused with what I found. There are all sorts of sites that are dedicated to recipes. Some of the larger sites have the ability for members to leave ratings and comments. These types of sites have become very popular over the past few years. There are even forums dedicated to food talk that include links to recipes and member comments. Heres where the problems arise. Do a simple online search for "Dilled Green Beans". You will see over 270000 results. These recipes are on all types of cooking sites from large established recipe sites to individual blogs. How to choose? How do you want to invest your time energy and money? Will you choose the recipe that calls for 4 lbs. of green beans 16 heads fresh dill 4 cups vinegar 9 cloves of garlic or the one that calls for 2 lbs.
The reality is that Red Velvet Cake is and has always been a chocolate cake. How can you bake a chocolate cake without using cocoa? Again how do you decide which recipe to expend your time energy and money on? I stay far away from food sites that offer member comments and reviews as some of the reviews are of no help and actually add to confusion. A few years ago I did an online recipe search for Turkey Mulligatawny Soup. I landed on a well revered food forum. This site also allows for member comments. I was shocked to see some of the comments made about this recipe. People who didnt have the spices called for in the recipe chose to cook the soup leaving them out.
First the recipe box or book can get lost. This is especially true after moving from one residence to the next. Also a recipe box or book can be destroyed due to fire or water. And once its gone its gone forever. But there is another method of safe-guarding your recipes for the long term: an electronic recipe keeper. And when I say "electronic recipe keeper" I am not referring to the cheap poor quality ones that you can buy for a few bucks. Those are like the personal organizers that were popular a few years back. Modern electronic recipe keepers are far superior. One major difference from the previous versions (and the main benefit over recipe boxes and books) is the ability to store a back up copy of all of your recipes online. So even if your electronic recipe keeper were to get destroyed or stolen all of your recipes would still be safe. Sure youd have to purchase a new electronic recipe keeper but youd have access to all of your beloved recipes. But having all of your recipes backed up isnt the only benefit.
