It seems that many of the wonderful things I discover on various websites is related to food. I have discovered countless new recipes, thanks to other blogs. Here is a bit of what I stumbled upon this week.
Kristen of the Frugal Girl shared a recipe for Pineapple Salsa. With pineapple, peppers, onions and cilantro, this looks like a good recipe to try this summer.
Katie of Modern Alternative Mama shared What You Need to Know about Preserving. This was a good – and very simple – introduction to canning. It has me excited to think about planting my garden so I can start preserving again. My Mom gave me her old food mill so that will be handy, too. Do you can?
Pennies and Pancakes shared a recipe for the World’s Recipe Easiest Homemade Crockpot Refried Beans. She says the cost averages out to $0.19 a cup, when made from dried beans. I’ve never made my own refried beans, but I’m going to give this recipe a try. Soon.
Tara of Unsophisticook shared another slow cooker recipe that I found enticing. This one was for slow cooker Beef Barbacoa. Once again, it requires simple ingredients and I do have a chuck roast in the freezer.
Food Your Way shared a wallet sized printable card of the Dirty Dozen / Clean Fifteen lists. Do you follow these lists? This would be a handy list to have in ones wallet.
I’ve seen a lot of people jump on the Paleo bandwagon. I found Liz, a college acquaintance, right on the money with this post on her Problem with Paleo for this Christian. Oh, and I’m baking my bread for similar reasons.
All these food links have me in the mood to bake. I’m bringing dessert for our upcoming volunteer dinner at school, so I think I’ll get started this weekend. Fudge Topped Shortbread or Chocolate Chip Tea Cakes, I think is where I’ll start. Yum!
