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!

Crabby Quiche & Cheesy Potatoes

11 Jun

A couple of recipes we (my boyfriend and I) made this past week were Crab Quiche and Gouda Bacon Potatoes. Both recipes were delicious and I very much recommend them. For the quiche, I didn’t use the recommended pie crust. I’ve been using crescent rolls from Pillsbury and lining the pie pan this way. No need to pre-bake the crust just add all of the ingredients on top. Then, bake.

1. Tonic is a website for good news. Nicely designed and very interactive. Viewers can vote on whether articles make them feel happy, intrigued, inspired or just laugh. The featured thought offers readers a simple quite moment for their day. Check out their Tonic Lists!

2. The Fun Theory is an initiative by Volkswagen that claims something as simple as fun can change a person’s behavior. I tend to agree with their statement after perusing their inspiring videos. How would you make more people use the stairs instead of the escalator? VW has a suggestion.
