We have started a new feature, it’s Food Blog Digest. Why chew through millions of daily blogs to get to the meat of things? We’ve done it for you. Check out the digest to read the day’s best food blogs.
We probably had our hands full in the last few days: Diwali dinners, marathon preparations, or finding that warm spot on cold autumn weekend evenings.Despite the hectic weekend, food bloggers made sure they got busy.
Check out these food blogs inspired by the Hindu festival of lights, the New York City Marathon, and warm, rustic recipes as temperatures start dropping.
A Guyanese-American blogger taps her Eastern roots (and her inner gourmet) to celebrate the sweets of the Diwali custom. The blog features the following traditional
creations: her grandmother’s famous mithai and Manjula’s Kitchen’s milk powder peera with a dash of extra cardamom. The Inner Gourmet also stirs her Inner Craftsperson with her handmade gift bags, the perfect package to pop in these sweet treats. After all, what is a celebration without the presents?
The Smitten Kitchen whips up the Spaghetti with Chickpeas recipe straight from Michael White’s piece at the New York Magazine. Inspired by the NYC Marathon and runners who load up on the carbohydrates before the run, the blog makes a good case on the middle ground of carbs. The Smitten Kitchen notes a surplus of energy after the full meal, in addition to calling the fare the “potato pizza of pasta dishes”, and so on. The smitten verdict: “wins all trophies”.
A dish is a good mark of any season. Putting the typical pumpkin aside, the nosh featured at Becks and Posh took the healthy route with this not-so-obviously-vegan autumnal salad. Read up on the successful tossed dish of faro, grapes, walnuts and mushrooms. Don’t miss out on the lovely details as well: the olive oil, the smoky paprika, and yes, the entertaining sub-plot.
Writing from a room in Chautauqua (instead of some off-the-beaten path in the Orient), the Rambler shares a recent Asian cooking demonstration that highlights the hot and the healthy in a well-made curry. The lesson is you can cook a successful Red Thai Curry without the fuss and with a lot of love; recipe’s attached.
Any wicked good dinner calls for a wicked good dessert without the guilt. Wicked Good Dinner features a rice pudding with vanilla and cumin goodness. Although it contains a bit of dairy, the recipe is gluten-free, soy-free and wheat-free which makes the pudding wicked in an entirely different sense.
