The Pioneer Woman

The Pioneer WomanSome time ago we featured “The Pioneer Woman Cooks” as our Blog of the Week.

We often visit her site to check out what great recipes and stories she has in store. Ree now has a new website called “” and I have just come from reading about her Tomato-Basil Pizza, Two Ways: An Experiment. Both ways of making this pizza are very easy to make and very tasty to eat.

I really like her new website and I am sure you will as well.

Ree has a great way of writing which is entertaining and amusing. So why not get yourself a coffee and settle down to check out the recipes and all the other interesting stuff on

Big City, Little Kitchen – Blog of the Week

We have been travelling overseas and now that we are back home it is time to get this blog back on track.

Big City, Little Kitchen

I had saved this cooking blog to my favorites some time ago when I came across a fabulous recipe for Cinnamon-Crumble Coffee Cake.

Now this blog is written by Gena who lives in an apartment in Manhatten and she writes about her cooking and dining experiences among other related things such as her trip to Paris where she tells about her favourite eating and shopping expeditions.

The recipes are accompanied by photos that show the end result so you know what your recipe is supposed to look when it is finished.  This is something I really like as there are times when you look at your finished product and think, hmmmm not too sure that’s how it’s supposed to look.

There are just so many yummy recipes that are well presented  with easy to follow instructions.

I recommend that you grab a coffee and take a good browse through Big City, Little Kitchen and I know you will be inspired to try some of the great recipes. The hardest thing will be choosing what to try first.

Cook and Eat

This great cooking blog is written by Lara Ferroni and her style of writing and presentation of the recipes is excellent.  The recipes are accompanied by beautiful photographs of her mouthwatering creation.

If you love Udon noodles and want to give making them a go, then check out the post on ‘Udon with no shoes on‘. The part where you have to walk on the noodles -without shoes of course-turns making the noodles into fun.  Of course you can use a pasta maker if you have one, but as Lara says turn the exercise into a fun event and evenget the kids involved.

There are so many great recipes and another one that I was particularly taken with is the Three Cheese Cake.  Believe me if you are a cheesecake lover, then you will want to give this recipe a try, you won’t be disappointed with the result. And again, check out the fabulous photos of the finished cheesecake.

There is just so much interesting stuff to read on Lara’s blog and The Progressive Party is one that is full of great ideas for a neighbourhood progressive party and the recipe for Cheesy Rissotto Balls  from ‘Jamie’s Italy’ is a great way to use up left over risotto.

So do yourself a favour and head over to Cook & Eat for a great read and some wonderful recipes.
