$30 a Week, Tweeting Foodies and Food52: Highlights From My Reader
August 14, 2009 at 12:31 pm
Wow, its Friday again. Where did the week go? Oh, I remember! I’ve spent it moving to my new apartment! As a result, the highlights for this week are a little thin. My absence is worth it, however: the amount of storage in my new kitchen is at least twice what I have now. So excited. Hopefully by tomorrow evening we’ll be just about settled in and I can really get back to cooking.
Highlights for August 8-14
This week I discovered a new blog. Actually, that’s not news, I add new blogs to my Reader at a rediculous rate. But I’m really interested in this one. Thirty Bucks a Week is written by a Brooklyn, NY couple who are striving (and apparently succeeding) to only spend $30 TOTAL on groceries each week. There are lots of “eat cheap” blogs out there and I follow several…but this is the first one I’ve found that’s ” 100% vegetarian”. If you’re looking for inexpensive vegetarian food, it’s definitely worth a look. (via Time via Cheap Healthy Good)
The social networking blog, Mashable, posted a list of Tasty Tweets: 55+ Foodies to Follow on Twitter. Yay, more people to follow! Don’t forget to follow Relishments on Twitter (somehow I didn’t make the list).
If you have original recipes you’d like to share (and possibly have published), then you need to check out Food52. Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs started the site with the idea that some of the best recipes come from home cooks. As a result, they’re creating a recipe database and crowdsourcing a cookbook to be pushed in 52 weeks by running weekly cooking contests. The site is currently in beta so you have to sign up for an invitation, but it goes live on September 15. More information from Tech Crunch.
