I am always very excited to try out new recipes which I usually find by doing research on different channels. On one hand I am a big fan of cookbooks and love to read them when I have enough time, looking to every recipe very detailed and mostly my mind is already going through my whole cupboard, thinking if I have all the ingredients already at home, so I could start immediately. Of course I never have all the ingredients at home, its always at least one missing. 🙂 Anyway, I love to go through the pages as most of them are made very nicely with lots of beautiful pictures. I guess it’s everybody’s dream, at least for the ones who are already blogging and sharing their recipes with others, to bring out the best ones into a cookbook. It’s a wonderful thought.
On the other hand I like also doing research on the Internet, because it is just so simple. You can find specific recipes by only searching for 2 or 3 words and the journey begins. Seeing that other people have the same ideas or giving you a lot of new ideas is great. There is nothing like sharing, it’s brilliant!
I have tried so many recipes and there is still a bunch of which I had not the time to post at all. But what I sometimes forget is, that the ones which I have posted already, are also good to be re-created. Once you have a basic recipe you really like, I would say this has to be used definetly again for creating a new recipe. This is what I made with the following recipe. The recipe for the bars is great and therefore I was so motivated to try it with other ingredients. I just changed the almonds to cashews, took banana instead of dates, put in mixed nuts butter instead of only almond butter and added millet pops to the ground mixture. And it does not needed any research at all. 🙂
No matter how somebody is doing research, in the end the result is important. While I am writing this post, I am eating one of these delicious bars. Enjoy! 😉
