Foodie Fridays #3
I spend a lot of time (some may say too much time) reading foodie blogs. They are always good for some entertainment, inspiration and it fills my need for food porn.
Here are some of the posts that have sparked my interest lately…
Once again, Baroness Tapuzina has gone where no foodie (at least this foodie) has gone before. She visited and blogged about the Tulip Winery in Kfar Tikva. I can’t vouch for the wine (it’s not kosher), but the labels on the bottles are very attractive.
Hannah the Cooking Manager has a weekly interview on Mondays where she grills (and bastes) her readers with questions. This week she’s featuring Kris of the Cheap Healthy Good blog. There’s a recipe there for Butternut Squash Risotto. I seen this made on a lot of cooking shows lately, both from Israel and abroad, old shows and new ones, so I think the food gods are sending me a sign. I’m going to give this recipe a try.
Thanks to a new arrival, Katie, the Midwest Mama (in Israel), has had to overhaul her life a bit. I remember my days of being a new mother, wandering around in a baby coma, wondering if I would ever drink coffee again just for the pleasure or it. Katie’s been trying to boost her vitamin intake with some Sweet Potato Bread. Sounds yummy, and the good news is you don’t need to have just spewed forth some progeny to try it at home.
Over at A Glug of Oil my Zaar friend Jan has posted a great looking recipe for Nice and Spicy Beef Curry. I could so get on board with this one, but the recipe calls for yogurt, which makes the recipe not kosher. Not a problem, I’ve always been meaning to try out the soy yogurts on sale in the supermarket. My local supermarket, Supersol Deal, has opened a wonderful health food and organic section, so getting all the seeds, spices and even the soy yogurt is going to make this such an easy recipe for me. So who wants to come over for Friday night dinner for a taste?
No food recipes, per se, but Aliyah by Accident gives you a great recipe for how to do your supermarket shopping in Israel. The minute Rami Levi was mentioned I could feel that pain you get in your stomach when you remember unpleasant experiences…
The fabulous female foodies over at Matkonation have posted a recipe for Persimmon Tart Tatin, oh yum! Seeing this brings back the regret I have in letting my brother take our mother’s cast iron frying pan. I should have fought him for it, hit him over the head with it and … oh never mind. I guess I’m going to have to go out and get a new one. Or have Ju-Boy get me one for my upcoming birthday, hint, hint, hint….
