Looking for food website - need help

This is an entirely random stab at hope. But, I'll give it a try.

I stumbled across a website last month (?) that had many recipes listed, blog-style. Though it's not exactly like a food blog where she puts down her daily food experiences. More or less, it's a place this woman was jotting down recipes she hoped to try in the future. Some of the recipes were ones on her "to try" blog/list were fromthe issues of Bon Appetit and other cooking mags she subscribes too.

Dumb me, I didn't bookmark the web address or even jot it down on scrap paper. Anyone know of this website/blog? She's a middle-aged woman. She had tons of pages of some very yummy desserts. The site had a very clean, cottage look to it.

  1. live, it's a big ocean of food blogs out there but I offer this suggestion.

    try backtracking the file history on your PC and see if the cookie or origin for the website still appears in your file history
    try your web browsers pull down menu to see if the site is still listed

    good luck!

    1. Could it possibly be this one: http://ayearatoakcottage.blogspot.com/ ?

      If it isn't and you can't find it, I'd suggest you try www.tastepotting.com as they list the best recipes from lots of food blogs around the world so you might be able to come across it there...Good luck!

      1. Haha...I did indeed! Sorry about the typo and hope you'll find it!

        1. Paula, great blog. But not the one I was searching for.

          HillJ, I will live and swim in the ocean of food blogs :-) (There's certainly enough of them to keep the food-chain of blogs going!) However nothing is more irritating to me than not being able to find something I wished I would have bookmarked! Suffice to say, I did indeed look through my file history but couldn't locate it anywhere, but I'll take a second look. Maybe it's in the depths of my PC's cookie sea. :-) Hehehe

          Paula and blewgo: I will check out tastespotting! I hope it's there.

          1. re: live vintageously

            live, when this happens to me I run a file-search/cookies and let the little dog do the surfing for me. I usually find it. But if in my own food blog search I come across the one you describe, I will link it here for you.

          2. I might add, the blog's background was white - if that jogs anyone else's memory.
