I was looking for recipe inspiration today (grocery store day got delayed to Tuesday, so the recipe hunt is on), when I ran into this little gem:
Sure, it might just look like a cookbook, but it’s also a beautiful blog. I love it! I might not have tested a single recipe, but the photography/watercolor combination is enough to get my vote. Add trees and food to the mix, and I’m a total goner. I’ll try a recipe soon. But today, I just want to say that when my blog grows up, I want it to look like this blog. Okay, like this blog plus a few pictures of our dog taking naps.
After I had that thought (about the blog, not the dog), I considered how much time it would take for me to create a watercolor heading for each recipe I post. Right, that’s why I don’t paint watercolor headings and recipes and such. You would get a weekly recipe at best, maybe a monthly recipe. For now, we’ll stick to the marginally attractive options that get food to the people. Personally, I vote food over perfection.
It’s nice to see perfection out there in the world though. [I would like to note that as I typed that last sentence, I dumped my cold leftovers out of their Tupperware, into my lap. I won’t ever reach perfection. I might, however, achieve watercolor headings and better photography. The end.]
We’re also trying a recipe this week from this food blog: The Smitten Kitchen. Mmm. Fancy.
