I’ve recently picked up the hobby of developing my own recipes. I was always one to follow instructions to a T, and so I learned techniques, methods, and flavor profiles by watching, learning, reading, and following.
Now it’s my turn.
Whenever I’m developing recipes, I look to seasons, celebrations, and holidays for inspiration. I often visit Pinterest for multiple ideas and kind of brainstorm and mentally gather up the designs that stand out to me the most.
Most importantly, my best inspiration comes from my mom. Growing up, mom always made the most scrumptious desserts. Her coffee cake, for instance, is just a perfection of a crumbly yet, moist cake, bursting with little pieces of apples and generous amounts of cinnamon. I often give her a ring to ask for a specific recipe, and end up using it as a base to develop my own.
Now I’m turning to you (yes you, my readers!) to inspire me. Give me something… anything: an ingredient, a technique, something that you saw that you’re curious about, and I’ll try to turn it into something of my own! Comment below and keep an eye out for my replies! If you inspire me, I may be using my new recipe on this blog.
P.S. I promise it won’t be anything like my chip and veggie dip.
