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.
Sugar might be added to a chili or soup recipe to sweeten it more. If youre very vigilant when you look through recipes then you will be ok. However if youre not careful then some recipes may contain ingredients that you dont want to include. Thats why specialty low carb websites and blogs are better sources for low carb recipes. How do you find these blogs? Well its not as easy to find them at first because just googling for "low carb blogs" can generate a lot of lists of blogs that are outdated and no longer running. It can also generate many pages of results that you dont find all that interesting and dont really want to spend time trawling through. So the best way is really to start with one blog that you enjoy and to keep reading it. Over time if its a good blog theyre usually mention other bloggers who do similar things. Other bloggers might also post comments on the blog youre reading offering cooking tips or recipe suggestions. These would be good people to check out. You can even start a conversation with them as most bloggers are very friendly and love to talk about their area of interest.
So the journey began in search of restaurant recipes. Most restaurants do not give out their recipes and why would they? They might lose a return customer if they did. I do see some restaurants that are selling some of their menu items in the grocery stores more than before but sort of limiting it to just a few items. I have also read about a person that would ask the cooks for their recipes and how some might spill the beans once in awhile but again fairly limited results. I remember one time my wife and I were at a Dennys restaurant late one night and how much we enjoyed their marinara sauce used with the mozzarella sticks we had ordered. We asked the waitress about it and she did check with the cooks on that but they really didnt know much about it and we thank her for trying.
