In my perigrinations through all the other food blogs (well, not all), I often come across recipes, or even just mere mentions, of dishes I really want to try myself. Especially if there's an irresistible photo accompanying the description.
I've only ended up trying one or two dishes, in truth, although I get seriously inspired (and may still end up going back and doing it).
One of my tried and true re-creations is ChrisB's cottage pie, from Ms. Cellania. I think Chris would faint if she saw what actual ingredients I use, but it's still a fairly faithful version — and it's easy and yummy.
But even though I've vowed to make other bloggers' recipes, I fall short. Oh, wait. I did make Ilva's blood-orange jellies in the shape of hearts. Yeah. So there might have even been some other replications I'm just not remembering now. OK, remembering another one now! Sourdough Monkey Wrangler's rice torte, which I bastardized into my own version, and which spawned a slew of other versions, including one by the originator.
I know it happens out there in the blogosphere's kitchens.
The other day I noticed that Glenna at A Fridge Full of Food had whipped up a version of Krispy Kreme Doughnut Bread Pudding, inspired by her friend Sher's attempt, at What Did You Eat? There was photographic evidence that this recipe re-creation actually happened.
Eek! That is not something I'll try. But you might.
All the time, when reading comments on food blogs, I see people saying, "Great! I am going to try this!"
So here's my question: Do you try out the foods you read about on other peoples' blogs?
