top 8 – food-tastic sites of the week

10 Jul
Who doesn’t love food? If by some off chance, you don’t. Please stop reading because this post will probably not appeal to you in the least. Weekly, I search for great recipes, but also basic information about food, spices, cooking methods. My boyfriend and I are always trying to top our last successful meal. Sure, we have our favorites, but usually we make something different 2-3 times a week. I wanted to share some articles, photos and sites I enjoy with you this week.

100 Calories of Veggies

1. Summer fills my head with ideas for new recipes and some awesome veggies to saute. I enjoyed these photos of 100 calories servings of Summer veggies. Take a peek 🙂

Delicious Days

2. Delicious Days was one of Time Magazine’s 50 Coolest Websites. And I find it pretty cool myself. I’m loving the sleek design, but also the detailed posts about a variety of tasty treats. So deliciously described, you can almost taste them through your computer screen. Be sure to check out the favorites as there are some keepers there as well!

Cake Journal

3. I took a cake decorating class with my mom and sister last month and found it’s a pretty fun, but expensive creative outlet. I ran across Cake Journal recently and really love the detailed how-to’s and great recipes. Also, the decorating skills are pretty impressive.

Chocolate & Zucchini

4. Chocolate & Zucchini has been one of my faves for a while. The fun idioms are like a history lesson in cooking. I also enjoy the desktop calendar wallpapers. I hope you enjoy them too!

2. Damn That’s Racist is a site to post racist comments you’ve heard, seen or said. Started by a good friend of mine, the site’s tagline is “Some things aren’t racist, but let’s face it, most of it is.” I’d hate to say this is a fun way to expose racism because its no joke, but the site does offer people an outlet for the hate in the world.

3. Disinformation: Everything You Know is Wrong contains articles about news around the world, but it reminds you to always question news outlets. The site is a aggregate for off-beat, quirky news and videos. With posts like “Teenagers Using Digital Drugs To Get High” and “The Sarah Palin Facebook Translator,” you can’t help but be amused!

4. Television Without Pity As stated in a previous post, I love some good TV! This site is all about recaps of shows, previews for upcoming seasons and forums for fellow tv-lovers. Continue reading
