I want to tell you about one of my favorite Swedish food bloggers, Helena Ljunggren. She's a wonderful writer and her photos are amazing. Definitely well worth a visit even if you don't speak Swedish. She posted about a sticky chocolate cake - like a brownie - with an extravagant topping with caramel, marshmallows and chocolate!
I can collect five million recipes for cookies. Or so I think. I keep bookmarking. Last week, my eye was caught at Surly Kitchen, and a great recipe for White Chocolate Macadamia cookies. Must make - as soon as I have some room in the freezer.
I'm not sure what sponge candy is - is it like the inside of a Violet Crumble, that awesome Aussie candy bar? Something similar, right? Anyway, here's a recipe, at Christine's Cuisine. It looks really easy and like something I would like.
Chinese food is one of my favorites, and although we often eat take-out, I like to cook it at home as well. This recipe by Kitchen Simplicity for a healthier take (aka non-deep-fried) on General Tso's Chicken looks great.
Weelicious is definitely one of my new favorite blogs. She blogs about kid-friendly food, and while Titus is way more likely to eat, say, expensive Italian salami or a Taleggio Risotto (his absolutely favorite by the way), than something typically "kid-friendly" like pizza or pasta, I still enjoy the inspiration. Titus has not exactly discovered the joy of dipping yet (he's a very un-messy kid, and as soon as he gets something - yogurt, rice, sauce - on his fingers, he'll hold it out for us to clean up.) but when he does I think he'll love this Ranch Dip. In the meantime... more for me.
He does love maple syrup, as do I and his father. So when I have the time, I plan to make a batch of these Maple Bacon Cheddar Muffins with cornmeal from Hot Polka Dot, and have in the freezer when snack-time comes around.
That's it for today! Have fun checking out the other blogs!
