Is that the reason why I struggle to write introductory posts for my recipes? Have I exhausted myself over winter? Am I emptied out? I really don’t know.
There is no fool-proof way to create a great or at least decent blog post. Most often I just write something off the cuff and connect post and recipe more or less elegantly. This time I am at a total loss. Sesame……. no associations. I can only think of “Open Sesame” and the story of Ali Baba and the forty thieves. A lesson in Arabic story-telling, reconnecting to gluten-free crackers? Sorry guys, that goes beyond my limits. Almonds….almonds……almonds……. Marc Almond! Remember him from the 80s band Soft Cell? It’s getting hopeless. Crackers….crackers…..nope, nothing happening. Rosemary……. I wish that stuff would grow in my garden like basil and mint does. Instead all rosemary seeds in my garden unanimously decide to not even pop up……
Preheat oven to 175C/350F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine almond meal, salt, sesame seeds and rosemary. Stir until well mixed. Set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk the egg white. Stir in water and oils.
Combine wet and dry ingredients and stir until mixture holds together. Between two sheets of parchment paper, roll out the dough to 1/8inch (1/4 cm) thickness. With a cookie cutter, cut crackers into desired shape and place onto prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden. Let cool completely before storing in airtight container.
I love your recipes and intros! 🙂 The crackers look so good and so pretty with the white and black sesame seeds.
Thanks Megi, you faithful soul!
people average 1:35 on my site…so even less than yours! But hey I got to the end of yurs in about a minute and a half! good stuff anja and thanks again for the contacts! too scared to get in touch with anyone yet!
Anya, for an ‘uninspired’ post, I think you’ve done brilliantly. I’ve been trying to go gluten-free and these look great. I’m going to try them tonight. And how nice to know there are still a few lovers of Marc Almond out there!
Love this. They look great!
I do, I love your blog. I mostly enjoy your recipes. They are all very unique, healthy and I love the ingredients in every one. I don’t think most people spend more than a minute or two on any site. Period. people are impatient and busy. I know I am, there I said it. 😉 I started reading this post this mornning then got side tracked like 7 times and am just finishing it now. So I probly just bumped up your average reading time to 12 minutes. 😉
Well, I’ve read about four of your recipes, and four of your introductions, about six minutes after discovering you via Google. So I’m guessing that your readership is comprised 100% of people like me – fast readers looking for tasty recipes. 🙂
Just discovered your blog and spending here quite some time so hope that your average will go up:) Thanks for all beautiful recipes which are easy to make and dont consist of 20ingredients:)
