Random Thursday Things

Have I ever told you how much I love to cook? I love all of it (well, except the cleaning). I love finding a new recipe, going to the store to buy the perfect ingredients for it, chopping any needed veggies or making any type of base (broth, rue, trinity, etc), putting it all together, and then of course eating it! Lately, I have become obsessed with cooking new things, and spend my lunch hour parading the internet for food blogs. Here are my favorite three (so far):

1.) The Pioneer Woman: I love her blog all around, and her food section is amazing!

2.) Smitten Kitchen: I admire this woman for making delicious food in a kitchen smaller than my own. Plus A LOT of her recipes are vegetarian so I love that...I can't wait to try more of her stuff!

3.) The Skinny Gourmet: I made her lemon tart one time and it was super yummy. Overall, fun, informative and good eats too!

Second fact for the day: I eat pudding, yogurt, and ice cream/sherbet super slow. It drives my husband crazy, and I've been known to milk a pudding cup for a good 1o minutes.

I love the Smitten Kitchen too. You may want to try Orangette; I also like Baking and Books.

I thought I was the only one who ate pudding slowly! My trick: use a real little spoon (I think it was my baby spoon).

Yay, I'm finally here (thanks for adding me).

I love to cook too, I think is my favorite site, but I'm going to check out the blogs as well.

I just recently started reading the Pioneer Woman and I love her. She needs to post more often. :)

Thanks for sharing these. I love to try out new recipes too so I will check them out.

Also thanks for commenting (and clicking) on my blog!

I'm so happy to see you are expecting! You give me hope!

Best of luck with your pregnancy!

Food blogs are absolutely addicting. And I have found that since blogging and getting more drawn into the food blog community, I find myself more creative with my own cooking at home. Less ruts = more happy.

Glad the lemon tart treated you well. I recently reworked the basic idea of it to make a kumquat camomile tart... tarts are an endless source of joy for me. If only they were more healthy. sigh.
