Friday Roundup 1/5/07

Author: swampkitty05  //  Category: Friday Round Up, Recipes

Short week for me because I posted a roundup so recently – but still lots of good posts in the few days since then. :)

Last week, Dispatch readers voted the Cheesecake Factory as the best dessert in town – while I agree that they have excellent cheesecake, I would have gone with Pistachio myself. :) This week, they’d like your vote on the best Japanese food in Columbus. Voice your opinion by Monday to enter to win a $25 restaurant gift card.

This week, the recipes I’ve kept to try at a later date are Hoppin’ John from A Mingling of Tastes, Walnut and Chocolate Rugelach from Alpineberry, Baked Penne with Sausage and Ricotta from Chez Mégane, Meatballs in Saffron-Almond Sauce from Chicken Fried Gourmet, Drunken Pasta from Cream Puffs in Venice, Curry Chicken and Broccoli Casserole from Cumin & Coriander, Pasta with Swiss Chard and Onion from dinner for one, Meyer Lemon Bites from Erin’s Kitchen, Fondue Mac and Cheese from Married…with Dinner, and Beef Bourguignon from Winter Skies, Kitchen Aglow.

In educational posts, this week, Brys at Cookthink shows us how to prep (and use) fennel, and Food Chronicles gives us a primer on spices, and Kathryn from Limes & Lycopene shows us what five servings of vegetables actually looks like, and in the same vein, Megnut shows us what 200 calories of food looks like. Definitely enlightening.

To say that this post from a fellow foodie pissed me off is an understatement. Why don’t you just round us all up and ship us off to an island where you don’t have to see us like they used to do with the lepers? I’m not a waitress, but don’t care if my waitperson is fat/skinny/whatever, as long as they are friendly and competent.

I’m having refrigerator lust over Sylvie’s new fridge. When I finally get around to remodeling my kitchen, that’s the model I want. Definitely. :)

I was just over at Trader Joe’s a couple of days ago, and I didn’t see these! I want some, but don’t want to make a special trip to TJ’s to get them because I know I’ll end up leaving with way more than those…

Until next week, folks…

    Hope you like the Meyer lemon bites—my husband (unbeknownest to me) took mine into his office, so I need to make another batch soon!!
