Your Suggestions!


I checked out your suggested food blogs, and thought I would pass them along. Sink, of a Bigger Cup suggested Eating Simply. What I really liked about this blog is it's emphasis on nutrition, simplicity, and frugality. If her recipe Naturally Sweetened Blood-Orange Sherbet is any indication of her other recipes, this is a good one.

Hilary of Crazy as a Loom, a new bloggy friend, suggested Kayotic Kitchen. The first three recipes looked very good, a casserole my husband would love, some baked onions I definitely need to try, and a caprese-type salad. But she also has a Toffee Brownie to die for, and comes with step by step instructions.

Smiles4u of My Life Interrupted offered two blogs to check out. Sarah's Cucina Bella started right off with how to freeze fresh strawberries and continued on with Strawberries and Cream Whole Wheat Crepes, an added punch of nutrition with the whole wheat crepes. I'll pass this one along to my son-in-law who is a crepe-maker supreme! The other one she suggested was Kaylin's Kitchen. Kaylin has all kinds of South Beach Diet recipes, including some with five ingredients or less.

DJan of d-jan-ity suggested a food blog by a writer I have been following on her other blog. Linda of Dinner Chez Nous had me with her first recipe of Loco Moco (blue-plate special), originating in Hilo, Hawaii. Love it in Hawaii, must love it here on the mainland, especially as she trimmed it down a bit.

Brian of WaystationOne, one of my favorite male blogging friends, suggested Aglio, Olio & Peperoncino, and the very first recipe hooked me with Panzanella - a mouth watering recipe for a bread salad. This needs to be tried this week as I have leftover ciabatta bread.

Lori ann of lori times five suggested Taste With Your Eyes and could not have picked a blog with a better title. Wow, the very first recipe I came across was Osso Buco, Toasted Pine Nut Gremolata and the pictures are unbelievable. But the second recipe of Curried Pork-Fried Rice deserves an honorable mention. If you haven't visited Lori, you need to, because she has been sharing her African Safari stories!

Another great blogger and blog, Ruth at synch-ro-nizing, suggested Laylita's Recipes. This blog was taking us on a tour of Equador, and it's food, but I also found an incredible recipe for Asparagus Risotto.

May I also suggest Marguerite's blog, Cajun Delights, as it is chock-full of unbelievable Cajun cooking. Plus she takes us dancing! And another terrific blog that I follow who is also a wonderful food blog is Pam at sidewalk shoes. Her White Bean Salad with Mint and Red Onion are the types of foods we are trying to incorporate into our diet.

So there you have it. Terrific new food blogs suggested by equally wonderful bloggers. Thanks so much and be sure to share any new dynamite recipes!

Ciao! Thank you for following Brian's advice and stopping by my little kitchen. I'm glad you liked the panzanella recipe, and wow, thanks for linking to my site. I think you're the one responsible for an unexpected surge in number of followers! That is a beautiful and generous gesture to promote blogs like that. Brava!

I will be leaving for a well-earned vacation soon, so my posting may slow down a bit. But please feel free to dig in my archives for more tasty nibbles. Pour the wine, sit back and read.

Ciao and again grazie!

I just found your blog and checked the food blogs you mentioned, they are very good and I am bookmarking them. I have a couple of food blogs you may not know. When I went to Newfoundland last year I found “Rock Recipes” at http://www.rockrecipes.blogspot.com/ and another one I like is “Chocolate and Zucchini” at http://chocolateandzucchini.com/
