I like to travel.
I like to bake.
I don’t like gaining weight, but I’m willing to take some calorie bullets to bring you recipes inspired by our travels. That is the cause.
Thus I bring you Calories for a Cause: Travel-Inspired Baking.
- I can only publish recipes for baked goods that originated in countries I’ve visited.*
- I need not have eaten the food while in the country, but in many cases I have.
- Baked goods only. Most of the time this will mean desserts or breakfast sweets, but I can think of at least one savory baked good that I plan to include.
*This is a real shame, because it means that until I get to Denmark, I can’t give you my recipe for Danish dough and all the pastries it makes: bear claws (bjørn klo), mock braid (wienerfläta), pecan snails (sneglar), or Danish envelopes (konvolute). 😦
This being first and foremost a travel blog, I can’t just give you a recipe. That would be wrong. There at least has to be a travel story… maybe a picture or two… at the very least, a link to one of my travel posts. Who says I don’t know how to self-promote?!
