One of my go to food blogs for inspiration and ideas is Simply Recipes. It’s been around for a number of years. Started by Elise Bauer, some of the recipes come from her circle of foodie friends, each with their own delicious specialty area. Hank Shaw is the game man, who can explain how to forage your own mushrooms to cook up with the duck you just shot. Gareth will make a cupcake or other dessert so scrumptious looking that you want to forgo dinner so you can eat a whole freshly baked cake instead.
Her site is also great because she’s taken the time to index her recipes by major ingredient and categorizes everything a bit like a cookbook. At least once a week or so a new recipe appears. This woman is after my own heart and sometimes I think she’s peeked into my kitchen. The other week a garlic knot recipe was posted and I couldn’t help exclaiming (add in a little giddy girly squeal) “I just made garlic knots! We’re thinking of the same yummy things!”
I haven’t been cooking up anything new as of late. My recent meals consist of homemade pizzas, bowls of cereal, cheese and lettuce sandwiches, and other things too boring to blog about (save the garlic knots, which I may get to soon). If you’re planning anything for the Superbowl, Simply Recipes has a few great ideas for snacks to serve up.
