Mel’s Delectable Delicacy, at the whimsical address of yummydelicacy.com, bills itself as a food blog where cooking is the name of the game. The most recent articles are more focused on weight loss, TV shows, and healthy eating tips, but the convenient list of content tags on the left, often sorely lacking in many very popular blogs allows the viewer to browse article topics at a glance.
And, indeed, beyond the very first page, there does appear to be quite an emphasis on the actual act and art of cooking, with recipes and instructions. A nice food blog, worth a visit.
Following is a guest post, a review of The Wicked Noodle.
I’ve just found a great addition to my bookmarks. The Wicked Noodle is a blog not to be missed if you’re a passionate foodie like I am. First, those pictures – I had to exercise extreme self-control not to lick my computer screen! I hadn’t had lunch yet and would have paid high prices for the Chicken Wellington, the scallops, and the penne dish. But I would have sold my very soul for those luscious-looking desserts. I think this blog could actually start me cooking some of these dishes, and I’m not one who usually loves to fuss in the kitchen. Check it out.
In a way-too-long piece (3757 words, I counted) in The Atlantic, author and bloviator B.R. Myers drones on in his The Moral Crusade Against Foodies. While there are those who take anything to extremes, B.R. groups lovers of food into the same category, showing his contempt for all of us. In a world filled with hate, do we really need to find ourselves as the object of this writer’s ridicule? Next time I see his byline, I think I’ll spare myself. ï»¿
I came across this eBook this week, a special Valentine book (click on the image above to download the PDF) that starts with many Valentine themed ideas and comments, and then offers some great sounding recipes. This eBook is free to pass on, per the copyright notice page. Take a look and let me know in the comments if these finds are of interest. While you’re reading, take a moment to request that your food blog be added to this site.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
I’d like to offer you a brief review of a food website, Living The Gourmet. Subtitled “Traditional and Exotic cuisines made simple with Catherine and the crew.” Catherine’s biography includes. “I Grew up in a loving Italian family that loved music and good food. They left me with many happy memories.”
I grew up in an Italian neighborhood, and when the weather is nice and people have their windows open, the street smelled like a restaurant. That aroma comes back to me when I read Catherine’s blog. One warning, this blog has a lot of content, to navigate easily, go down the right side to the Blog Archive, there I easily found the Mushroom Soup she published in October, 2009. Planning to make that next weekend.
Above is the Living The Gourmet Signature Spice Rub. Can’t wait to try this on my next batch of ribs. Visit when you have a moment and tell Catherine where you read about her cooking.
And they have a lawsuit to prove it. It seems some fast food chasing lawyer decided to sue Taco Bell. He claimed that the meat filling in their tacos was just 35% beef. Taco Bell is counter suing for defamation, as well they should be. (You can click on the image below to get a better view.)
See this cake mix? It calls for 1/2 cup of oil. You know how many calories that is? 964! Of course, the box says this makes ten servings (at 320 calories each), but that doesn’t include the icing, so the cake alone will have 3200 calories, nearly 1000 coming from the oil. Add icing and you’re over 5000.
This is the solution. A junst-under-4oz container of apple sauce. 50 calories, no fat. One simple move, and you just dropped 900+ calories from this recipe. If Betty Crocker (well, General Mills, I suppose) is reading this, here’s your chance to save the world, 900 calories at a time.
