Deb of Smitten Kitchen fame has done it again! She's transported me to a completely different and dare I say better or at least warmer place just by posting one of her amazing recipes. She's tempted me to come along with her this time to a tropical isle. People if you don't know about Smitten Kitchen you are not serious about your food. If you are serious about your food and have missed SK then please check out this delightful food blog. You will thank me after you wipe the drool off your chin.
Let me just say right now that I'm one of those people that loves to
read recipes. I love to imagine the flavors and how they'll taste
together and how I might change and rearrange them substituting one
ingredient for another. Cookbooks are wonderful reading and
entertainment for me and so I love the way Deb writes about how she
might change this next time or how this or that would probably go well
with it. Like Deb I'm always changing a recipe to make it my own and
rarely make it as written.
The post that got me going this time was a March 18 number which seemed simple enough: Coconut Bread. Sounds intriguing. I'm not a coconut nut but still... It sat in my in box for a week waiting for me to explore further. Finally I clicked over and dove in. Oh - My - Goodness. It looks amazing and easy and I have all the ingredients right here in the pantry, even an open carton of coconut milk. What am I waiting for? Nothing that's what.
DELICIOUS! Toasted with some honey butter, oh gracious.
You can find the recipe here. Instead of milk I used coconut milk in a straight trade out. I only used 1 tsp. of cinnamon. Next time I'm trying some of the additions Deb talks about. Don't you just love playing around with recipes or would you rather just stick with a what's written as long as it's good?
Until next time,
