Spreading the Love: Some Links to Share

When I get a chance to run about the net (usually on those days when Kat insists that she must nurse for hours on end), in my virtual travels, I often find new sites to peruse.

And today, I decided I wanted to share some with you, because they are really cool, and I think y’all will enjoy them.

First up is the blog of Jaden, Jaden’s Steamy Kitchen. I feel a lot of kinship with Jaden, and not only because of the beauty of the site–ginger, cilantro and star anise all featured in her logo: some of my favorite flavors all together! (Yes, we seem to share an aesthetic sense.)

No, I feel kinship, because she is another culinary instructor and she really groks Asian foods. She is also a generous writer and a sweet lady, so go visit and see some lovely food photos and tasty recipes.

Now, the cool thing about finding new blogs, is that you can check their blogroll and find more new blogs.

Which is what I did with Jaden’s Steamy Kitchen.

And I am glad I did, because I found the blog of Lily Ng, Lily’s Wa Sek Hong.

Not only does Lily present traditional Chinese foods, she bakes like a dream. Check it out!

Now, here is a blog aggregator which features primarily Indian food blogs: Food Blog Desam.

While this site’s design isn’t pretty to look at, it is easy to use, and presents the newest posts of the vibrant, always fun and informative Indian food blogging community in a format that is simple to follow. In cases like this, I prefer practical over pretty, so I am a big fan of this site which is subtitled: “One Place Stop For Kitchen Wisdom and Wit.”

The cool thing about blog aggregators, of course, is that you can come across new blogs. And that is always fun.

From Food Blog Desam, I found Dining Hall, a blog which functions as a place for food bloggers to share information and talk about the ins and outs of blogging. The latest post, written by Nupur of One Hot Stove, on the art of recipe writing is excellent, and is a thoughtful read for any of us who have posted recipes on the ‘net.

That is it for today; I have a garden to plant and a quilt to sew and dinner to cook, cats to herd and a baby to love. Gotta go!

  1. Thank you Barbara!! I’ve learned a lot from reading your essays and recipes. Many of the things I learned my Mom wasn’t able to explain to me in English and I don’t know Chinese well enough to understand some of the lesser used words and phrases.
