How many times do you read a blog, find a recipe, and go make it?
I read Pioneer Woman's Tasty Kitchen all the time. There are always good recipes there.
But yesterday I saw that on Garden of Daisies, Gayle had Fanciful Raspberry Ribbons. Oh my gosh, they looked so good. I love Raspberries. But sadly, I didn't have any in my pantry.
What's a cook to do? IMPROVISE!!
Since the blacksmith has picked about 15 gallons of blackberries this summer, and we have made about 24 jars of jelly, I thought I could make this recipe work for me..
So what I did, was first cut the recipe in half. After all there are only two of us living in this house and one of us doesn't need all those tempting calories around. After that, I thawed about 5 big juicy blackberries and mixed them in with about 1/2 cup of my blackberry jelly. I then followed Gayle's recipe.
Thanks Garden of Daisies for the recipe. They are delicious!!!
