Food, glorious food!

I watch Food Network. I have tons of cookbooks. I have utensils galore. Can I cook? Ask my family and they’ll tell you- NO! I make passable dinners, but nothing to write home about. So I continue my quest for more recipes, and more ideas to torture my family with. Here are some of my favorite food websites:

  • Smitten Kitchen– Deb writes this food blog out of a 80 square foot kitchen she shares with her husband in Brooklyn. Great recipes. Check out the entry for May 22nd-30 ways to be a good guest. 30 recipes for great potluck dishes!
  • I love Daisy Cooks! I started watching her on PBS because of all the FiestaWare in her TV kitchen, but I continue watching because her recipes are so easy.
  • My friend SoulSpeak23 (SS23) turned me on to Desert Candy, and the month of ice cream making in August of 2007. I have yet to try any of the recipes, but it’s on my Bucket List!
  • Of course, then there’s Pioneer Woman. Ree blogs some of the best recipes. I’ve personally tried the Pineapple Shrimp kabobs, and SS23 can attest to the yumminess of Marlboro Man’s favorite sandwich. I plan on trying the apple dumplings at Biggz graduation party.
  • The Black Oven has some great dessert recipes. She’s dark, and I suspect she likes skulls.
  • Spicy Ice Cream– absolutely yummy recipes that I’m dying to try.

If you’re looking for a way to save all the recipes you find online, or finally sit and organize all your magazine clipped recipes or the recipes your aunt sends you, I suggest setting up a Google email account. One specifically for recipes. Now, when you find a recipe you like, you can email it to yourself. Once in your Inbox, you can archive the recipes based on food group- apps, desserts, etc. I bring my laptop into the kitchen and bring up the recipe I need- no more searching around on the Internet or in a recipe book!
