Here begins a new little feature, “This Week’s Bits & Bites.” It’s pretty simple: I’ll highlight some of my favorite stuff from the past week, I’ll talk about it a bit, and I might incorporate a few annoying little puns here and there. And for that last part, I am sorry.
Bake at 350: Faux Bois…ooo-la-la! – I love faux bois, and I love cookies. The brilliant Bridget of Bake at 350 (and author of the adorable new cookbook Decorating Cookies*) created these knotty AND nice sugar cookies . Woodn’t you like these on a plate this holiday? I think I need to cedar to believe it! I’ll stop now. Saw-ry.
Crispy Chipotle Potato Tian – One of my very favorite vegetarian food bloggers, Kiersten of Oh My Veggies, shared this amazing potato tian this past week. IF you count the salt, this recipe boasts all of four ingredients. FOUR! And it’s just gorgeous. Go look. Now.
The Chubby Vegetarian: Super-Easy Vegetarian Mexican Pizza – These mexican pizzas from The Chubby Vegetarian look so simple and utterly delicious. Especially the smoked mozzarella part. Plus, you could use smaller tortillas for individual portions and add a little meat for your beloved carnivore if he or she has been extra nice to you this week.;
Bites for Growing Your Blog: getting started & site design – Sally of Sally’s Baking Addiction has seen great success growing her food blog – and she’s only been at it a year! I’ve been gobbling up (pun intended) her series, the latest in a terrific trend of food bloggers sharing what they know about blogging. I’ve been at this awhile, but there are always, always! new things to learn.
