So the other day I was thinking about where I get inspiration for my recipes from. Sometimes I see an ingredient and decide to build a meal around it, or if I am craving a certain flavor, maybe I see something on a cooking show that I want to recreate with my own twist on it.
Inspiration pops up at various times so I’ve started carrying around a journal specifically for when food inspiration strikes. I don’t know why I didn’t do this before, it’s been great. I’m compiling a list of future yumminess for Simply Syn. The next recipe that I’ll be adding to the site here is for a pumpkin rice pudding. I had been craving rice pudding but I also wanted to add some seasonal Fall flavor to it.
Where do you get your inspiration for creating new recipes? I had never really thought to deeply on this before and sometimes even places you wouldn’t expect to find inspiration from you do. The seasons influence me, the type of day, is it cold and rainy? Is it hot and muggy? Even conversations can strike a chord that gets the gears turning for recipe ideas.
So I pose the question to you, where do you draw inspiration from for the things that you are passionate about?
(These are a small piece of the thoughts that run through my brain and keep me awake at night).
