Good Eats

I got nothin'.

No yummy recipes to share today.

It's a production week, which means I live at the church and let my home and family fall into complete disarray. I haven't cooked anything new or tasty in a while. Actually, I haven't cooked anything in a while.

But never fear.....I know where you can find some d.e.l.i.c.i.o.u.s recipes....by people who actually know what they're doing.

These are my favorite foodie sites that I check out regularly. I know I can always count on their recipes to turn out great. Give them a try. You won't be disappointed.

King Arthur Flour Blog: This is my absolute favorite. They don't post everyday but when they do it is always a GREAT recipe. They are trying to sell their baking products, but you can ignore that part and just use your favorite brands and still make scrumptious baked goods, from whoopie pies to whole wheat bread and everything in between. Imagine being paid to bake and taste test your recipes all day long. Heaven!

Confections of a Foodie Bride: This site combines delicious food, witty dialogue and beautiful photography to make a wonderful food blog. You can find great savory and sweet dishes by the bride.

Annie's Eats: This may be one of the only sites I look at that actually has more main dish recipes than desserts and baked goods. Don't worry you'll still be able to find recipes for Pear Ice Cream and Pumpkin Scones, but you'll also find lots of delicious meaty meals too.

Proceed with Caution: At this site you'll find lots of recipes for "clean eating", a concept I'm very interested in. Right now you can find recipes for Bulgur Dinner Rolls and Lemon Thyme Roasted Turkey Breast. I have plans to make her Pumpkin Spice Bagels next week.

Bake at 350: This is a wonderful blog to read if you have children. It is mostly about decorating cookies....beautiful, themed cookies. She has cookies in all shapes and sizes. She also bakes other goodies and can decorate a cake or cookies for any theme you can throw at her. Her ideas are so cute and inspiring.

17 and Baking: I found Elissa's blog through my Daring Baker's Challenges. She is a 17 year old high school student in Seattle that loves to bake and write. Her posts are UNBELIEVABLE! She is a brilliant writer and her "stories" are full of insight and teenage angst. Her baked goods are just as mind blowing....almost as much as her job in a high end restaurant. This girl is one amazing teen. For example, today's recipe is Peppermint Striped Meringues with Chocolate Ganache. See, told ya.

Those are my go to sites, but I've recently discovered a few other blogs that I've just begun to explore. You might like them too.

Baking Bites: Who wouldn't like to find out how to make Cream Cheese Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies?

Brown Eyed Baker: Go here to get 10 Gift Ideas for the Foodies in Your Life, a.ka. me!

Dinner and Dessert: Lots of chocolate and fudge here right now.

Joy the Baker: There are more than just baked good here. Check out the recipe for Big Fat Bolognese Sauce and the pattern for Joy's favorite apron too.
