This is the third installment in my 7 Links Challenge. The fourth and fifth parts of the challenge ask for : your most helpful post and a post the success of which surprised you.
# 4 Your most helpful post – Granola | Deconstructed
Although arguably my most helpful posts are those in the Food Photography series, based on the feedback I’ve received, my most helpful recipe has to be my how-to on making crunchy granola.
In it, I lay out my quest for the perfectly crisp and clumpy granola and share my tips on creating the best texture in your granola.
I cracked the granola code and came up with a version that possesses all the qualities that I had been after: large clumpy clusters, with a light and crispy texture. It’s a basic recipe that has endless variations and can easily be adapted to suit your tastes.
# 5 A post the success of which surprised you – Chocolate Milk Toast | When Comfort is Needed
The success of this post was surprising considering how it’s simply a combination of toasted bread, warm milk and chocolate.
As I said, it’s the kind of food I want to eat in my pj’s curled up under a blanket, because sometimes comfort is needed, the comfort that comes from those foods that have a special place in our hearts.
In the post I also address the emotionally charged nature of comfort food from both a physiological and psychological perspective, but at the end of the day I think its the enduring appeal of a quick snack that can be thrown together when in need that made this post as popular as it was.
