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.
