Foodgawker Highlight

4 Jan

I love Foodgawker – celebrating good food photography and making me hungry every day. Occasionally, I learn something, too!

Today I saw this lovely picture on the front page:

Kroketten (Dutch Croquettes)

And, well, that looks like something fried. And being from the South, I never met something fried that I didn’t like.

The image links to a sweet post from Almost Bourdain. The snacks above are called Kroketten and are a type of Dutch Croquettes. Reading over the recipe, this seems like a great item to have in your recipe box when you have some leftover roast beef or brisket that you aren’t sure what to do with.

What’s also nice about the post is the writer’s connection to the dish – recipes with a story are always a favorite. And she takes many lovely pictures, which always help me out the first time I attempt a new dish.

Maybe these will be on my Super Bowl Party list this year…


Craftgawker’s Yummy Sister Site

31 Oct

Recently, Craftgawker recommended I visit it’s sister site – Foodgawker.

And I’m so happy I did:

Halloween Peanut Butter Truffles


Deviled Egg Dip


Boeuf Bourguignon


Enjoy exploring!

On another cooking related note, Pioneer Woman’s Cookbook finally came out and was delivered and is packed with yummy recipes and sweet stories. Highly recommended for those not afraid of cheese, cream, and butter.
