Simon Thibault, wrote an article about me for Saltscapes Magazine. The focus was on family recipes being handed down through the generations, why I started food blogging back in 2005 and where it's taken me. Truth is, I started just to keep a journal of my recipes for my daughters, who where living elsewhere on the planet and for me... since I often "throw things together" and then don't remember what I did.
Over the years I've written up hundreds of recipes and I even check the recipe index as often as I check all the cookbooks and magazines that fill my bookshelves and counter tops when I have a particular craving. But it's always a very pleasant surprise when someone leaves a comment on an older entry... like this Rogan Josh, also known as Beef Curry. I first wrote about it in 2005, then again as part of an Indian feast in 2006, But it's particularly cool when I get a great comment in 2011! Obviously it's time to make it again.
So, to my fellow bloggers or recipe journal keepers... what's you favorite tried and true that you don't often think about, but when you do, you need to whip up the dish immediately?
