It was not often that way although. When I started this web site (again in 2011) I shared heaps of distinctive styles of recipes… from primary dishes to salads to desserts, jams, jellies and plenty of things in amongst. I have to acknowledge that when I glimpse back again, many of people recipes ended up, what I would now simply call, “a labor of enjoy”.

“Labor of like”, is a pleasant way of saying that they could take a Long time, need lots of machines and result in a Big mess in the kitchen area. But, a number of many years into the site, I realized a great lesson.

It was truly a lesson that would be lifestyle-altering (properly, at minimum in a culinary/weblog sense). And, the funny factor is, it was rather considerably by accident. This is how it arrived about…

When I tried the famous French cake recipe, we all fell in enjoy with it. The cake was moist, tender-crumbed and tremendous delish.

The rapid and extensive-expression acceptance of this uncomplicated cake recipe got me considering. I understood that most persons have super hectic lives and really don’t have the time to make elaborate, multi-move desserts that just take several hours to entire and have to have unique tools. You know, the recipes that begin with “In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, combine…”. And then “conquer for 5 minutes until finally smooth and fluffy”, followed by a thing like, “insert the wet and dry substances separately, mixing nicely soon after every single addition”.

Wow, if you could make a seriously scrumptious cake, with just one bowl and a whisk or a wooden spoon, why in the world go by way of all that further work? So it grew to become a mission… to explore and make super simple, nuts delightful desserts with minimal exertion.

As time went on, this goal spread beyond desserts but that’s a further story, a Ridiculously Simple tale, for one more day…
