March 2009 Roundup

Author: swampkitty05  //  Category: Meta, Monthly Roundup, Recipes

I’m not sure if any of you are aware of the method of generating these roundups. I have 5,000+ rss feeds for food blogs in my feed reader, and usually just save the recipes that sound interesting to me. Believe it or not, even without every blog posting every day, it’s not unusual to open up my feed reader when I wake up and see 2,000-3,000 new posts. That’s an amount that’s doable, if I keep up it with it on a daily basis. However, miss a day or two, and you fall behind – far, far behind. I’ve spent the past 6 months trying to catch up. At the worst of it, I had 40,000+ messages in the feed reader, with more coming every minute. But I can finally gladly say that I’ve *finally* made my way through Bloglines, and am caught up (at least when it comes to reading).

So here’s the first of four new roundups, the last of which will bring us to the end of June. I’ve already got them written, so it’s just a matter of formatting them and posting them. I should be able to get that done by this time tomorrow, which will free up my time for doing other things that have been neglected – like updating menus, events, and starting to clear out the backlog of blog posts and restaurant reviews. As always, thank you all for being so patient. :) So without further delay, here’s March’s notable recipes:
