Apricot Clafoutis

Morning   Coffee The first thing in the morning that I do , after took my cup of coffee ,is turn my note read the news and visit my dearest fellow bloggers.I confess that I read and sometime I forgot to let a comment. Bad me!! I wake up early every morning even on week ends. I always loved the early morning light, especially in spring and summer. My best memories are on my summer vacations , at breakfast time, watching the silver and golden ocean, in my grandparent’s beach house, It was a great time. In this spirit and hearing an old song (Happy together) that I recently discover watching a Ford’s T V commercial that I saw in Brazilian TV. I would like to point some blogs that makes my day, they really push up my soul every morning. And no mention their delicious food. Come with me in this amazing journey and check yourself these inspiring readings Spring Apricots Mark, from No Special effects. His delicious and well done food is a real inspiration. When I read his blog and thoughts makes me feel that he is a great human bean. Peter from Kalofagas , when I discover his blog, Greek food are restrict for a few ingredients ,Just figs, olive oil, feta cheese, lamb and yogurt and of course Musaka .How wrong I was, there are many amazing recipes. Peter has that I learn a lot about Greece. Paz, every Monday she puts a stunning photo of her City, New York, and delicious recipes. Every Monday when I watch these photos I feel her love for the city and this is really inspiring Blue Kitchen Terry B had a great blog, she is clever and kind. The recipes are delicious and well done, you can learn about food reading her food. And one of her post makes me feel that everything is possible.

Thanks so much, Slyvia, for mentioning Blue Kitchen. And what beautiful photos of apricots! I especially love the ones falling into the bowl. I must offer one little correction to your description of Blue Kitchen, my friend. I'm a guy. I know Terry is one of those ambiguous names, so it's an easy mistake, especially since I write about food. But I really am a guy--just ask my wife Marion!
