Friday Roundup 2/2/07

Consider this the “slow” edition. 😉 (considering I’m about two days late getting this posted – I added a bunch of new feeds this week, which brought me to about 5,000 posts I had to look through – it took longer than I expected.)
I’d like to draw your attention to the sidebar at the right, where I’ve added two new features, one which is a food blog directory (I got a bunch added this week, still have a bunch more to add, email if I haven’t added you yet and you’d like to be added), and the other which is a list of contests/sweepstakes with prizes that would be of interest to foodies). I hope you enjoy the new features.

The Dispatch had an interesting article about people like me who are so-so about eating fish, and provides some hints for making fish more palatable for those who don’t really like it.

Stuck for ideas on where to go on Valentine’s Day? The Dispatch has a list of what different restaurants in town are offering on February 14th. Make your reservations now, everyone. 🙂

Last week, Dispatch readers chose Anthony-Thomas as the best sweetheart treat in town. This week, they’d like to know who has the best Italian sub in town. My choice, Carfagna’s, isn’t on the list, so I’m going to be writing it in. If you go during lunch hours, they will make you a sub to order that beats local competition hands down. Voice your opinion for a chance to win a $25 gift card.

Mental note for me to bookmark the HHDN #9 Roundup of souffles, since I just bought my first set of souffle dishes, and am looking for a recipe to use to break them in. 🙂

Finally, a round-up of this weeks memorable recipes from around the blogsphere: Meatloaf Surprise from Coconut & Lime, Chocolate and Sea Salt Cookies from Culinary Muse, Chocolate Truffle Tart from FamilyStyle Food, Nutella Cheesecake Brownies from alpineberry, Eggs Benedict Florentine with Creamy Butter Sauce from Culinary in the Country, Meyer Lemon Souffle from Little bouffe, Tartiflette from Lucy’s Kitchen Notebook, Apple Quince Tart from Too Many Chefs, and Gremolata Potatoes from The Wednesday Chef.

In informative posts, we learn how to design your own deli tray on Slashfood, and Kalyn from Kalyn’s Kitchen shows us how to make beef stock.

Well, that’s it for this week, folks…until next week!
