Reading through the blogosphere this month was certainly
entertaining. I discovered a few new favourite
blogs and returned to some old classics having a
good giggle along the way. Here's a sampling of what piqued my
interest and awakened my taste buds.

Trouble in the Hen House
I had no idea that there was an ongoing debate in Vancouver about
backyard chickens. That's right, there is a movement taking place
to allow city folk to keep poultry products in close quarters to
Tingling Tastebuds had some interesting points about keeping a
fresh meal in your backyard.
Resignation by Cake
Yep, you no longer need a well-crafted resignation letter to advise
employers of your impending departure from the company. Just send
cake. Leave it to Cake Wrecks to post this
After scouring through endless of blogs this month there
were a few recipes that hit my foodie radar and have gone on my
list of things to make - one day.
I heart purple food
Alright I have to admit that that I love any food that is
purple. It's weird, I know, but there is something about the
colour I find appealing. With that said I feel like I have to
Beet Pesto from A Canadian Foodie. I've never turned this
hardy root vegetable in a pesto before - looks delicious.
How about a little mac and cheese in your flap
I love mac and cheese. I also love pancakes. But I had never
thought of putting the two together until I read this
post. The recipe taken from Shopsin's Eat Me: The Food and
Philosophy of Kenny Shopsin is apparently quite tasty. Has
anyone else tried putting this combo together?
I'm a sucker for Tzatziki
There is always tzatziki in my fridge. I have no idea where my love
of this Greek staple comes from, but a container always sneaks its

The next generation of foodies have taken to the interweb sharing
their love of all things food. Foodie at Fifteen
is leading the pack. This kid covets his Le
Creuset Dutch Oven - how cute is that?
Don't Mess with A Consumer's Juice Carton
After spending a whopping amount of money on rebranding, Pepsico
has decided to drop the
new design for it's Pepsi Cola and Tropicana bottles and
cartons. Turns out consumers weren't feeling the love when it came
to the new designs. I kind of liked the design of the new
Tropicana carton myself.
I'm Ready for My Close-Up Mr. DeMille
Food photography is an art unto itself. How do you make food
look fresh, vibrant and tasty all through the eye of a lens? Just
Kitchen - she has mastered the art of the perfect food
photo. Oh yeah, she has great recipes to boot! It's
well worth checking out this site every couple of days to see
what's cooking in her kitchen.
This Is Why You're Fat
Any finally, fattening food. This blog went around our
office recently much to the great amusement, horror, and disbelief
of my fellow co-workers. Seriously, we couldn't believe some
of the crazy culinary concoctions that people can come up
with. Does anyone fancy chocolate covered bacon?
