Blog of the Week – Chasing Tomatoes

I have been doing what I love best, perusing the internet looking for interesting blogs when  I came across ‘Notes from the Cookie Jar’.

This blog has lots of interesting information  – in fact it was the first post I came across entitled Parents Bullying Survival Guide, that led me to investigate further into the blog. Lots of really good reading about a variety of subjects.

This led me to another blog also owned by ‘Scattered Mom’, named ‘Chasing Tomatoes’.

And here I found recipes to truly whet the appetite.

The very first image of the Maple Ginger Glaze Salmon drew me in. Being a lover of Salmon,  I am always on the lookout for interesting sauces to try out with it. But the intriguing part of this recipe is not only the yummy sauce but the novelty of cooking the salmon on a cedar plank. Scattered Mom states that using a cedar plank to cook the salmon on is generally something you would do on a barbecue, however she has adapted the recipe so that you can cook it using the plank in the oven.

Another yummy recipe is the Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins these look and sound delicious. The food photos on  Chasing Tomatoes really invite you to get into the kitchen and start cooking.

We are always looking for healthy alternatives to eating and followed Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution shows plus his 30 minute meals program. Everything Jamie does is aimed at promoting healthy eating habits by using fresh produce.

Well Scattered Mom is part of the Jamie Oliver Food Revolution, rating a mention from Jamie Oliver on Twitter and a mention in his newsletter video for Food Revolution Fridays and Food Revolution Road Trip.

Believe me, you will find lots to interest you on both blogs. And you can join Jamie Oliver’s food revolution and set your family on the path to better health through healthy eating.
