I often get asked if I prefer one type of cooking or one region for my inspiration. The answer is no, and no. I like a lot of different types of food and I love to try new things.
It was about a year ago that I discovered the "blogosphere" as it referred to cooking and crafting. Previously, I'd look for recipes on Epicurious, Allrecipes, and in my stacks of cookbooks and cooking magazines (I like Bon Appetit, Gourmet, Cooking Light, even Family Fun!). One night late last fall, I was up waaaaay too late after my newborn had refused to go to bed. I stumbled upon the Pioneer Woman. And my cooking hasn't been the same since!
Ever since then, I have kept bookmarks for some recipes I'd really like to try!
Here are just a few:
Caramelized Onion and Butternut Squash Galette from Smitten Kitchen
Grilled Ribeye with an Onion Blue Cheese Sauce from Pioneer Woman
This and This pizza from Smitten Kitchen
Baked Doughnuts from 101 Cookbooks
Zuni Roasted Chicken from The Kitchen Sink
Beef Bourgugnion (after seeing Julie and Julia, of course) from Purse Full of Cheerios
Chocolate Croissants in a jiffy from Joy the Baker
These mouth-watering pancakes from Bakerella
So, there you have it. Just a sneak peek of my culinary "to do" list.
I will try and tackle one soon. And post a review, too.
