I know I haven’t been posting much about food or recipes much in the last few months. It’s not because I haven’t been cooking or eating – exactly the opposite! We’ve devoured a blueberry buckle, a coconut-pineapple crisp, pasta with roasted butternut squash and goat cheese, a hearty, creamy chicken noodle soup…the list goes on and on. Truth be told, I think I’m tired of writing like this. I no longer feel the urge to take photos of the food, to write about the food…Does anyone else ever feel this way? Does it pass? Is there anything I can do about it?
Here’s a recipe from a long time ago: Martha Stewart’s Black Bottom Coconut Bars. I wasn’t a big fan. Both layers, the brownie and the coconut, were a little too dry, a little too bland. Maybe it’s my fault, maybe not…but I like my brownies gooey and chewy, so this just didn’t work for me. Some people may like it, so if you’re thinking this sounds up your alley, then check them out here. I won’t bother posting the recipe here though.
I am definitely going to finish my Hawaii series on here. Hopefully, I feel a bit more inspired to keep documenting cooking and baking endeavors by then.
