Coffee Ice-Cream & Digital Note Pads

A food blog is many things, the obvious being a record of recipes. And, to be useful, records need easy access.

On Pebble Soup, readers can get to recipes by using
Labels, a full set of which is found at the end of each page and a selection on the left-hand bar.

Then there is  Google search at the top which allows a search by key words and the

yearly archives with its drilled down list which will give a list of recipes.

Therefore finding a recipe is not really a problem but I wanted something more visual and pretty which called for a note pad.

There are a few note pads around and a quick read on various forums pointed me in the direction of Evernote and Pepper Plate. First impression, "not user friendly enough for me" so I opted for a lesser known note pad which will display collections of recipes on a caroussel. I opted for Spring Pad.

I am rather pleased with the result

Of course all this work was bought to you by several cups of coffee and the odd

Coffee Ice-Cream

150ml expresso coffee or 2 tsp instant coffee dissolved in 150 ml of boiling water
150ml full cream milk
100g light brown sugar
5 large egg yolks
300ml double cream

combine coffee and milk allow to cool
In a heatproof bowl beat the egg yolks, sugar until thick and pale, stir the milk mixture in
Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water and stir with a wooden spoon until you get a custard looking mixture which coat the wooden spoon
Add the double cream when cool and churn in ice-cream machine.

The notepad looks interesting, more visual than Evernote, which I use for work. Will be interested to see how it goes for you.

So far so good, I have also created a private notepad where I store all the recipes I'd like to make one day. I would be interested to know how you use evernote at work.
thanks for the comment
