Court's Clicks: 1/20/12

With a mere twenty minutes walk, I can have a view like this.  Inspiring, isn't it?

Believe it or not, even when I seem to be surrounded by a world of muses, this week I have been feeling less than inspired.  Maybe its the French paper on Descartes that is looming over my head, or the apartment hunt and find (among other things) that has been sapping me of my artsy flair (HA! As if).

Because, even when I have tried to do something creative this past week, it just hasn't turned out all that well (as my upcoming post on turning your Thanksgiving centerpiece into a meal will show).

Yet, even if I may be experiencing the creativity blahs, that doesn't mean I can't share some truly inspirational finds on the web:

This Avocado, Cream Cheese, and Salsa Stuffed Puff Pastry recipe is pretty much the inspiration for this post. I haven't seen such an original recipe as this in a while.  Wow, and yum!

I love creamy soups, but let's be honest, no one loves all of the fat (although I do like butter...)  Anyway, this white bean soup is a mark of pure genius: creamy texture, lots of taste, but no cream.

A pizza made with a cauliflower crust that doesn't taste like cauliflower? Now, that's innovative, and happily deceptive.

Finally, we need to talk about something very important to getting out of this creativity funk: Pinterest.  I've been on this site for a while, but was definitely under-utilizing it.  If you like what you see, be my friend by clicking here and we can share pins and be inspired.  This is where a dream of an OCD person like me has become a reality.  Happy pinning!


  1. Stress often zaps me of any creativity.  Just give it time and I'm sure it will come back! :)

  2. Luckily I haven't been sucked in by Pinterest but I am sure the day is not far from now!

  3. You have a nice blog - glad I discovered it.  I really have to get into Pinterest - it looks like tons of fun.  (And it can deliver an awful lot of traffic to a blog.)  Anyway, I enjoyed the post - and I'll be back.

  4. Aw, thanks for stopping by for a visit :)
