V3T9WJC38T8R – I was a popular girl this summer, at least in one sense. I was invited to do not one, not two, not even three, but FIVE guest posts for fellow bloggers. I have to say, I am immensely flattered. After all, I do have something of a specialty blog and my recipes aren’t to everyone’s taste. But I’ve made a lot of good blogging friends over the past year, and I am so happy people felt like they could call on me when they needed coverage while on vacation. And I fully intend to do the same when I head out on vacation in October. Plus it’s a really fun way to read and discover new blogs.
This latest guest post is for a blogger I adore, Kate from Diethood. Don’t be fooled by the name of her blog, her recipes are anything but diet-friendly! In fact, I believe Kate’s tagline is “Not a diet-food food blog”. It’s a tongue-in-cheek reference to the idea that people are always saying that their diet will start tomorrow, because tomorrow never really comes now, does it? Despite all the wonderful non-diet recipes on her blog, Kate tells me that she does eat fairly low carb. So I decided to come up with a recipe that could be made either way, with sugar and carbs, or with sweeteners and low carb.
I’d been meaning to try Panna Cotta for a while, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. And all the basil growing in my yard this summer got me thinking how lovely it would be as a flavour for panna cotta. And so it was! But I won’t tell you any more here. You’re going to have to head on over to Diethood for the details and the recipe. Make sure you do, because you’ll love Kate’s blog if you’ve never read it before. And if, like me, you have so much basil in your yard you hardly know what to do with it, you’ll love this recipe.
