there are so many recipe sites out there. i start with with epicurious.com, then i let hyperlinks or google take me to other sites and foodie blogs.
i like epicurious.com as it is easy to search (give you many options), not busy-looking, very well organized, clean layout and nice pictures.
beautiful pictures are important to make me want to actually make a recipe.
no recipes: gorgeous pictures; asian bent.
fx cuisine: made me want to cook well; pictures are in-your-face large; in the recipe on Real Uzbek Plov, i found out how cool it is to oven-roast garlic; but it does not have to take an hour; i hate all the ads though.
burnt lumpia and market manila: for deep insights and interesting ideas on filipino food and cooking.
10:08 AM Just got home from work. Was at the grocery store to get what I need for my 2012 New Year’s Feast.
The menu for my feast is:
Braised Mustard Greens/Broccoli Rabe with Garlic
Potatoes with Peppers and Chorizo
Dulce de Leche Flan
Am also cleaning and tidying my house for the Brand New Year. Am starting today.
I am off from work today and Monday next week, so got lots of time to prepare for the First day of 2012 and a day to rest from all the preparations.
11:50 AM I think I will make the Potatoes with Peppers and Chorizo sometime today.
The salted fish (uga) is in a bowl of water; I need it soaking to get some of the salt off–8 hours & change water about 3 times.
Kitchen is all spiffy. Living room and foyer next.
