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!

top 8 – Brands that know how to rock Facebook

23 Jun

Good examples help for great inspiration. I’ve explored some big brands on Facebook to see who really has a handle on their brand socially speaking. Based on level of engagement, content, usability and creativity, these Facebook pages rock!

1.Best Buy Not only do they sell music that rocks, their Facebook page rocks as well! Numerous landing tabs, especially the Idea Giftr, keeps a viewer’s attention. I love that their wall posts are integrated as opposed to “Best Buy posts, Others posts and Best Buy and Others posts” (one of my pet peeves). Best Buy addresses fan’s concerns almost immediately.

2. Bath & Body Works does a fantastic job inviting guests to their sales. Great use of discussion tab. The What’s New tab is a must-see, love 7-Day challenge!

3. Papa John’s not only my fave pizza, but a great example of how to maximize Facebook. Great customer service and fun contests! Be sure to upload a picture for a chance to be featured as their Fan of the Week! Yum!

4. Dunkin’ Donuts Ever since checking out their page, I’ve been craving an eclair! A new donut lover is featured weekly as the company’s profile picture. What a great way to show your customers they are valued. Check out Maurice, located as a landing tab, he definitely rocks!
