reinventing the wheel

A couple of today's recipes revisit a couple of my favorite recipes...

WaPo's La Farinata (chickpea pancake) is very similar to Mark Bittman's shrimp tortillitas from Bitten, which is great last minute dish that you can make with frozen shrimp and whatever fresh herbs are lingering in your refrigerator.

Speaking of Mark Bittman, today he shares an upside-down pear cake which is reminiscent of this honey-glazed upside-down pear cake (which I've made for a few of you). I'm especially fond of the accompanying story, which discusses the evolution of a recipe. It was one of the reminders that I should be taking notes when I modify a recipe or procedure; hence the blog.
