This Month’s Best Food Post (October)

me.croppedAs always, it’s tough to cull the ‘best‘ from so many good posts among my food blogging colleagues. And, as I said at the outset of this series, it’s purely subjective…it’s whatever grabs my eye at any given time. This month I was either indecisive or feeling generous. I narrowed it down to 4 exceptional-looking dishes and then couldn’t move on. So, here are all four for you to enjoy. Continue Reading

This Month’s Best Food Post (September)

me.croppedI don’t know how many food bloggers are out there in the blogosphere. Thousands? Tens of thousands? I follow about 150 on a regular basis and they all do great work. The criteria for my monthly ‘best’ picks is quirky and subjective. It is whatever especially piques my interest for whatever reason.

July’s Best Food Post: Belated

MeI’m late, I’m late…for a very important date (remember that from Alice in Wonderland?) I’ve been preoccupied with the redesign and move of my blog, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t looking at other blogs. And, because this post is delayed, I’ve decided to treat you to more than just one. Here’s a few that were of special interest (to me).

For technique: Slow Roasted Salmon from Marc at No Recipes.

For uniqueness: Avocado Cheesecake from Chez What?

For the ‘wow” (I-want-to-do-that) factor: Parmesan Cones with White Bean Mousse from Proud Italian Cook.

I’ve already started bookmarking for August so get cooking!

This Month’s Best Food Post: June

As usual, it was difficult to choose just one post. All of the bloggers I follow are so talented.


But, the visual on Savory Sweet Life’s Father’s Day Pancake ‘had me at hello‘. I just kept going back to look at it.

This Month’s Best Food Post (formerly This Week’s Best Food Post)

Yes, I know the month is not over, but it’s close enough. First of all, you’re all doing great work! I knew when I changed this event from once a week to once a month it was going to make narrowing the field down to one very difficult. So, until I can muster up the discipline to do just that, I have to give a shout out to a few others for their originality and great execution. I’ve made a mental note to try each of these one day.


Kalofagas:  Parsley Salad

But the one that really sung out to me and that I know I will try (in some form or another) is Vegan Yum-Yum’s Rustic Bread-Eggplant-Lasagne. What can I tell you? I’m just a sucker for carbs, especially Italian ones!

This Week’s Best Food Post (IMO)

Scratch that. Let’s make it This Month‘s Best Food Post. While it will make it far more difficult to narrow down just one post per month, it will leave me time to start moving items from my drafts list to my published list — and to create the many ideas that are currently colliding with each other in my head. Yes, it’s like a high speed, multi-lane highway up there. It’s rush-hour traffic 24-7. 

Without further ado, I think Pulled Beef Brisket over Sweet Potato Waffles with Chili Tamarind BBQ Sauce from Mike’s Table would have made it to the finals even if I had a month’s posts to review (rather than just this past week).

Past Best:

Italian Lentil & Chestnut Stew


Next Best: the end of May

This Week’s Best Food Post (IMO)

The first nomination is Italian Lentil & Chestnut Stew by Sophie, a nutritionist and registered dietician, who writes Mostly Eating in the U.K. I discovered Sophie’s blog this week because of a Facebook link posted by Gourmet Worrier in Malta. 


(I love that a blogger in Malta got a blogger in Florida to look at a blogger in the U.K. And I love that I finally saw something of value in the whole Facebook thing…just before I was ready to ‘pull the plug’). 

Anyway, I was immediately taken with this recipe and Sophie’s style of presentation. It’s a very interesting recipe, with a surprise ingredient.

This Week’s Best Food Post

(in my opinion)


I’m announcing a new event called This Week’s Best Food Post which, as I write this, is still in a nascent stage. Like many of you, there are lots of blogs in my Google Reader and I get quite a few via email as well. I scan them all – stopping here and there to read on or leave a comment. So I thought it would be fun to announce each week the one that most piqued my interest. Blogging, I’ve learned, is a lot about community and I’m hoping this event will have a twofold benefit: (1) to pass on some really good stuff you may have missed and (2) to perhaps help promote another blogger (whether they need or it not). Consider it in foodspeak ‘just desserts’ for a job done well.

I’m thinking weekly. I’m thinking no criteria…sometimes I’ll add a comment and sometimes I’ll just provide a link; some ‘winners’ will be based on creative cuisine, others for writing style or for photography – whatever speaks to me. Don’t forget, it’s IMO. And, it could be anyone from Mark Bittman of The New York Times…to you!

Coming soon.
