Saturday Blogsurfing

caramelized onion and eggplant pizza

I have had an amazingly busy week. Hopefully soon I will be able to share a couple of bits of fantastic news…(no I am NOT pregnant)..Until then check out what I have found today! The image is the caramelized onion and eggplant pizza I made for dinner last night..recipe coming soon….

You know that with me it is all about the desserts. Check out this Black Forest Tiramisu by Alexandra at Addicted Sweet Tooth…

This next post got me on two counts…I spent summers in Michigan as a kid, and the state just oozes fruit and vegetables in the summer..I miss that! Also, being in the south, who can resist fried pies? These Sour Cherry Pocket Pies at Dog Hill Kitchen are baked not fried, but you could easily deep fry them…Yum!

Peabody has a rockin’ recipe for brown sugar pound cake, but what I found more interesting this morning is the beginning of that post where she talks about being rejected on Tastespotting…Peabody? Rejected?Geez.

I have been rejected, but I expected that because I don’t see myself as one of the cool kids with the super imaging powers. I likeTastespotting for several reasons, one it helps me to find out what I want to feature on Saturdays, although that isn’t the only place I go.

But then I started thinking. Are we, food bloggers all, becoming a caste system rather than a bawdy band of foodies? Are there certain people who, when you see their names in your comment section, make you feel like you have hit a pinnacle? Do you find yourself lusting after the kudos and accolades? Sometimes I do! O.k.back to your regularly scheduled Saturday…I just felt philosophical this morning.

If you haven’t heard, Courtney is going through a rough patch, so if you pray I am sure she would appreciate them, and if you don’t good vibes sent her way would be helpful.

It is summer and what is summer without blackberries? You have to check out these amazing sounding Blackberry Almond Bars from Jacque at Daisy Lane Cakes…Yummy!

I was browsing Epicurious and found this Frozen Mango Meringue cake. I am thinking of doing it this week since i have the egg whites from Eggology left…It just sounds so ..wow!

If you like that salty/sweet combo in chocolate covered pretzels, and chips head over to How to Eat a Cupcake and check out these Salted Caramel Cupcakes.

I don’t think Em is a Repressed Pastry Chef any more..check out the Double Chocolate Chunk Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Jennie, at My Cake Wardrobe has a pink post. I love the images on this Strawberry Panna Cotta.

O.k…that;s it for today…I have women’s ministry lunch to attend. I am taking the penne salad but this time I made it with broccoli and wild rice…eh..I liked it better with the penne, the rice soaked up too much of the dressing and it seems bland to me. Sigh. Shooulda stuck with the penne.

Have a great weekend everyone!
