Diary of a Wanderer

I’ve been wandering again and visiting places like Paper Palate, Just Baking and Get Your Grill On, (all part of the Well Fed Network). I’ve given you a teaser from each of my adventures, to read more just click the title link, but remember to come on back here for some more new stuff soon.

Fine Cooking with Clams

Fine Cooking is one of my favourite food magazines. Not only does it contain gorgeous photos, it also has amazing recipes (anyone for Chocolate Espresso Pecan Pie?), product comparisons and recommendations on which kitchen tool is best (mortars and pestles are highlighted), cooking techniques (a how-to on hearty soups), and nutritional breakdowns of every recipe. What more could you ask for?….

Don't Call Me Pizza

Focaccia is kind of like pizza’s puffier, less dressed cousin. However, this is one of those rare occasions where nakedness conveys class instead of trash. Instead of being slandered in the food tabloids for coming out of the oven wearing little more than some onions and herbs, focaccia is held in high esteem, like a James Beard award winner…

Discovering a Tasty Continent

One of the things I enjoyed the most about this cookbook is that the recipes are intertwined with Samuelsson’s stories about Africa and its influence on worldwide cooking - from the markets in Marrakech to a cooking school outside of Cape Town. Discovery of a Continent will take you on a flavourful journey and give you a feel for the spice and variety that make up Africa

Dreaming of BBQ Chili

I think about food all the time. I’m constantly thinking of recipes that I want to try and combinations I’d like to test out. There are not enough hours in a day for me to make everything I want to. There is also not enough room in my fridge or money in my wallet to accommodate my cooking visions…

Such a fantastic post! Like you I wish I had more time and money to devote to food and cooking!

Perhaps you need a publisher or a cooking show to underwrite your cooking visions. You are always so fresh and creative in the kitchen that I know you'd be huge - jumbo in fact!
