Supercharged Breakfast Chocolate Pudding
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.
Plus there are always others that have like interests. It really becomes a win-win for everyone and can spur on even more ideas and experiences from others who are interested. As with anything one has to dip their toes in and get a feel for it of course. I have been trying out some of these imitation restaurant recipes sources and have been truly impressed. I have been learning a lot more than first thought and it has been a lot of fun to top it off. The people who have created these copycat recipes have really done a fantastic job. My quest is to save some money of course but making some of these recipes is also a great way to learn how to cook. Think about it for a second one can actually learn how to cook an appetizer entre or dessert that they know is good at their favorite restaurant and get great results for their effort right out of the gate.
What typically happens when you see an interesting recipe that youd like to save and try out at some future date? You grab the closest piece of paper and quickly jot it down. You then stick it on your refrigerator or place it on the countertop telling yourself that the first chance you get youll put in your recipe box or favorite cookbook. But then what happens? It gets lost or misplaced and you never get the chance to try it out. Another scenario popular among at-home chefs is trying to save your favorite recipes. It may even be a family recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation. The way these recipes are usually stored is to be written down on 3" X 5" index cards and placed in an index card storage box. Or they may be written down in a blank recipe book. This is better than having them written on loose pieces of paper but there are also some major flaws with this method.
For example you can choose from several interesting bread recipes some of which use an affordable main ingredient - brown rice flour. Popular free cooking blogs are also a wonderful resource for recipes and they often have plenty of comments from blog followers who have also tested the recipes and shared their experiences. Celiac disease websites may have recipe indexes although they dont always contain recipe reviews; many of these websites do offer lists of links to recipe archives featuring the reviews you want to read. When searching for gluten free recipe reviews be sure that the website has an impartial focus - in other words recipes should not be touting a specific gluten free product recipe book or catering service. Sometimes the reviews found on "corporate" websites may not be authentic. Its better to look for recipe indexes that dont attempt to sell a food item or cookbook. Often online marketplaces like Amazon.com will offer good deals on items or recipe books - in general the reviews posted on these sites will be more accurate and trustworthy. To be certain a review is reliable look for tags like "Amazon verified purchase" at the top of the review - then youll know for certain that the person leaving the review actually obtained and used the recipe book. At Amazon it is possible to leave reviews without buying or trying a product so there is the possibility of deceptive positive or negative customer reviews. In general public recipe archives without a "sales-y" focus will have fail-safe reviews from everyday people; they are probably the safest best for your needs. Parents with children who have special gluten free dietary needs will also be excellent sounding boards for all types of recipes. Parenting forums can be filled with recipes and commentary on their usefulness. Since parents must prepare practical tasty meals for children (who may balk at bad-tasting meals) they will often share their success stories with other parents. Visiting these boards can be a useful way to find meal options that will appeal to almost anyone.
