Cooking Bytes

One of the tasks I do whilst working on this website is to scour the net looking for blogs to add to our Blog of the Week section.

Now I shouldn’t really call this a task as I really enjoy it. The number of cooking and food related blogs on the net is amazing and the quality of some of them is outstanding. In other words, there are just too many to choose from so I am going to add some of the more interesting ones that I have saved in my Favorites folder in the past couple of weeks:

  1. Herbal Farmstead – As the name suggests, this blog focuses on herbs. I particularly liked her post on Herbal Housekeeping which provided recipes for making your own natural home made cleaners.
  2. The Candy Addict – If you love candy (and who doesn’t) then this is the site for you. Everything you have ever wanted to know about candy is here. Take a look at the Top 10 Grossest Candies and the M&M’s Wedding Cake.
  3. Kalyns Kitchen - This is a really nice, visually appealing blog and the recipes look fantastic. I am going to be trying the Sweet Potato Fries.

Applemint – Blog of the Week

applemint.JPGWhilst doing a little web surfing yesterday, I came across a wonderful food blog that I knew would have to be our Blog of the Week. What caught my eye with this blog was the wonderful recipes and accompanying photos which are just superb.

Applemint is owned by Kate who has no formal training but obviously has a love and a passion for cooking.

Check out her recipe for Nectarine and Honey Yoghurt Lollies. These really caught my eye and I will be keeping this one for when the weather warms up here.

This is our recommended blog of the week so take some time to head over to Applemint.
