Brilliant Blogs

Nikki from Nik Snacks gave me a lovely award – Brillante Weblog. Thank you, Nikki! Right back at you!

I’ve been reading lots of blogs lately and I’ve found some really exceptional ones that I want to pass on this Brillante Weblog award to.

Food Stories’ Helen Graves makes all kind of wonderful food - oven baked falafel and Watermelon and Feta Salad with Poppy Seeds, while trying to eat local and organic whenever possible. This recipe and picture alone are reason to recognize her.

The Constables Larder is Giff Constable’s and Lisl Dunlop’s blog about food and wine. They love to cook and write about it interestingly. Their contribution to Foodbuzz’s 24, 24, 24 event was pretty impressive. I particularly loved how they served the soup and this recipe.

Luna Pier Cook is an cool blog from Dave Liske in Michigan. I found him from his thoughtful post on Starbuck’s problems with dipper wells. He writes about all aspects of Michigan’s food community, including this impressive offering.

Simply Gluten-Free is a blog about gluten-free eating and cooking, but that’s not why I like it. I like it for the wonderful recipes, which certainly don’t seem as if they form part of a special diet. Mexican Chocolate Bark sounds and looks fantastic. I love that she makes homemade marshmallows for Christmas presents. And a Pomosa is my kind of cocktail!

And just for laughs, I present Cake Wrecks. Jen posts hilarious pictures of cakes that the blog’s title describes well. Here are some posts about orders gone wrong; a creepy baby cake and the first cake wreck that Jen wrote about. Great stuff.

Congrats on the award and to all of the new recipients as well.

Thanks for opening me up to Cake Wreks! I could totally relate to one of those posts. I once went to a really nice looking bakery that I had wanted to try for a long time in hopes of having them make me a cake for my engagement party. I told them it should have a heart that said Rachel and Kevin on it. My cake was inscribed with the words "Heart Rachel and Kevin". When I complained to the saleswoman she looked at me as if I were nuts and said, "You didn't say you wanted a heart SHAPE."

The cake tasted great, but needless to say I crossed that bakery off my list as a possible wedding cake baker.

Congrats to everyone! Hooray.

What is up with people liking candy corn? You too?
I stand by my decision.

Hi Food Lover,

Yup, it's always fun to give some love to other bloggers.

Hey Rach,
That is so funny! So it really does happen in real life? Was it the talk of the party? People are really, REALLY dumb.

Candy Corn is the royalty of Halloween candy. Without it, there is no Halloween! And I love that it doesn't come in small individual packages, so I have to eat it all myself. AND I eat each and every piece layer by layer. YUM!
