CAKE_SPOTHere you’ll find all of the original and adapted recipes featured on The Pink Apron.  Any recipes sourced from outside my site will be noted in the related post with links whenever possible.  Often, however, I do cook from cookbooks and out of respect for the author will direct you there if I make the recipe verbatim.  Most of the time if the recipe has been featured on the blog the book is worth it so I recommend checking them out at the library.
