  • What I like most about the recipes you post, Chefgrape, is that there is always a surprise ingredient. These ingredients add complexity at the very least to the final dish..........Surprises are always welcome at my table.......

  • Thank you Palindrome,

    I try and post recipes that are familiar or use common ingredients along with those that can be altered a bit so anyone using them can use whats on hand if necessary to create.

    I was also taught folks eat with their eyes first. or look at the food and say to themselves "that looks good, I want some". So, when reading the recipe I want you to get a mental picture of how it might turn out or taste before you even attempt it. That way you might try something new on occasion if you kind of visualize it first.

    I see so many recipes that are very repetitive of what we eat here in the South like "meatloaf and mash potatoes". So, you might find a few of those recipes, with an added twist in my files, say like a "Golden Crown Meatloaf" made with a type of flavored meringue top of mustard. I've made one with a light curry meringue as well,to mashed potatoes made "Duchess" style with a shake of nutmeg just daring anyone to try something a little different.

    We all get bored eating the same thing all the time, if I can possibly expand the palette of us all a little bit, It brings me joy.

  • I always heard the same about appearance but I never thought of the recipe enticing folks to try it. Interesting
