Other blogs


This is the header I did for Ramona, who has a knitting blog called The frayed knot. I have trouble tying my shoelaces, so I´m lost in admiration of anyone who can knit, never mind knit as well as all that.

Another recent discovery is Lydia´s blog, The Perfect Pantry, and was hooked instantly.
Lydia writes about ingredients in her pantry, freezer or fridge. The sort of jars or packets that are always around, and can turn a couple of hundrum fresh ingredients into a bright and zesty and different dish.
I´m a compulsive food and condiment buyer, and often end up with things I bought with a specific recipe in mind, and then forget about. This blog gives one recipe for each highlighted product, but always makes sure to link to a few others. So if you don´t finish those packets it´s nobody´s fault but yours. I´ll be eternally indebted to her for the tip of putting smoky barbecue sauce in bean soups, but there are plenty of other great ideas in there.
There´s also a Bookworm in the pantry column, featuring recommendations by Pantry readers. Not cookbooks, just cooks that feature food prominently or interestingly. Have a look at my selection, and better still, make a list of your own.

Gorgeous as always. I love the little girls belly peeking out under her shirt. Reminds me of my own little sisters when they were small. Adorable.

Lucky, lucky Ramona, to have such a wonderful blog header! I love the one you did for Veronica's Test Kitchen, too.

And I'm so glad that you are this week's Bookworm in the Pantry. I love to share what my readers are reading.

Great blog header! That is so cute with the kids and the wine spilling back. I agree about Lydia's blog it's a great source of information about ingredients in the pantry and its many uses.
