My favorite fun food blog

  • 13

I found a really fun food blog a couple of months ago, and while it's not complicated food, I've tried almost every recipe and they are fantastic. The layout reminds me of Ina Garten, but funnier. Anyway, Ree, the blogger also has a non food blog. Both are really entertaining. Check them out and let me know what you think.

  1. Fun.
    Thanks.

    1. I just bought the ingrediants for the cubesteak sandwich. It looks wonderful. I also sent a link to my Mom. This type of cooking instruction is just her speed

      1. My friend sent me a link to this site regarding the eggs benedict recipe and her 2 sticks of butter (!). I found the writing absolutely hilarious and her step by step pictures very helpful.

        1. I've seen and read that one too. She's great!

          1. Yes... I have spent the last 2 days scrolling through each and every recipe on her site! She is my new hero. She's funny, smart, a great photographer, and her recipes are so mouth watering, I may try out ALL of them! First up chicken spaghetti, followed by the oh-so-simple bread pudding, then maybe the lasagna... I haven't decided which order to do them in - ahh!

            1. Thanks for the link! I love her style.

              1. I just discovered the blog myself the other day. I was so impressed with her turkey recipe that I decided to use her method instead of Alton's.

                1. Looked pretty entertaining until I spot the Kraft green can of parmesan in her lasagna recipe photos.

                  Is she serious???!

                  1. re: notmartha

                    I think she just uses that because she lives waaaaay in the boonies and does not have access to real parm.

                    1. re: amethiste

                      Now with mail order gourmet food I think she has no excuse! ;)

                      1. re: notmartha

                        She mentions in her regular blog that she cannot get deliveries to her home so mail order may not be an option. I definitely would change some things in her recipes. I think her recipes are definitely not aimed at people like us who know food and have access to specialty ingredients. On the other had my Mom, who lives in a small town and has never been much of a cook, would really appreciate simple recipes that use very ordinary ingredients. Also I enjoy PW's humor.
                        Cheers! :-)

                        1. re: notmartha

                          She also mentions in the recipe, that she knows she will be scolded by everyone for using it, but it works for this purpose... she's lighthearted about all of it.

                          Here is part of a post she had about a month ago on the "Serious Eats" website...

                          "I stirred up a tiny bit of ire on my own cooking site when I dared to suggest, in a post about lasagna, that it was permissible to used processed Parmesan cheese in the recipe. I would like to state for the record that it was not my intention to personally offend anyone with this suggestion. But when you are a former city girl living in the middle of nowhere on a working cattle ranch, you learn to improvise with the ingredients you can get."

                          1. re: wino22

                            Thanks. I can't imagine living in a place where they won't even deliver stuff. Geez.

                            Website's pretty and she had a good writing style, but I don't know if I would go for those recipes. I don't want compromises when I cook, and fortunately I don't live in a ranch w/o mail deliveries.
