A Pig in the Kitchen

I just discovered a very entertaining cooking blog from across the pond in England Pig in the Kitchen. There are some delicious-sounding recipes like Quinoa and Chickpea Soup, Smug 'n' Spicy Veg, Cranberry Cookies, Rocket Pesto and others that are clammering for my attention. I may break down and have to convert those gram measurements into cludgy American cups and teaspoons right awy. The author has a daughter with multiple food allergies, so the recipes are free of gluten, soy, eggs and dairy, yet her food porn pictures and descriptions make them sound chock full of taste.

The blog is great for the comedy content as well. Here's her introduction for the Pineapple Upside-Down Cake recipe:
Pineapple Upside Down Cake

This is a little stodgier than the cake my mother used to bake (in yester-years), I am blaming the buckwheat flour. It did not stop me eating lots of it.

She also advises readers on the sexiness quotient of various recipes.

Now there's someone I'd love to sit down and have a cuppa with. And a nice hunk of cake.

Dear Rachel, I am swooning in delight at your kind comments! Thank-you very much!
Drop by for a cuppa anytime...or if you come after 5pm, shall we have some wine?! I'll make you some truffles if you're very good!

Wine it is, hic! Can't wait to try some of your swinish recipes. I'm glad the Internet is here to help us all out with recipes for our diet challenges.
