Food Blogs - A Great Source for Dessert Ideas

April 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 168

Dessert is something kids look forward to consuming, provided that they have eaten all of their dinner first. It can be challenging to come up with different dessert ideas each which, which is why turning to a few food blogs is so helpful. Professionals and novices alike have come up with new dessert recipes that they are more than willing to share with the world. Why shouldn't you take advantage of that?

The first thing you need to do is pay attention to any cooking tips that are listed in the blogs. The number one reason a dessert doesn't usually turn out is because the directions were not followed. For example, if the recipe calls for melting chocolate and other ingredients in a double boiler, then don't try to melt it in the microwave. Saving time is nice, but not if it causes your chocolate to burn or remain lumpy. Sometimes creating new desserts is a labor of love.

Next, you want to skip any recipes that require you to use kitchen equipment you don't have, unless you have the ability to borrow the appliance from a friend. You can't make waffles with homemade ice cream or custard on top if you don't own a waffle iron. Just add the waffle iron to your Christmas list and move on. There are thousands of recipes available, so don't get hung up on one you are not capable of putting together.

You are also going to want to scour both general food blogs and specialty food blogs. General blogs contain a mixture of meals and desserts, and often have a lot of traditional treats that have been proven to stand the test of time. Of course, specialty blogs are more edgy and offer sugary pastries and other such goodies with a twist that you may not have thought of using. There are 365 days in a year that need a dessert, so why not use recipes from both types of sites.

Finally, you'll want to make recipe cards for the dessert ideas that match the taste buds of your family. One of the best cooking tips out there is to keep these cards organized so that you can quickly find the flavorsome treat you are looking for on the night you want to make it, or when you need to be reminded of the ingredients before taking a trip to the grocery store. Organizers are inexpensive and can even be found at some dollar stores.

The next time you find yourself looking for a new dessert idea, take advantage of the cooking tips on our food blogs by heading to http://simplyfoodndrink.com/.
