Links of Love today

I don't have any food to post about today. I have a batch of muffins in the oven- but nothing new or special. And last night, while watching Throwdown with Bobby Flay, the hubby and I both came down with a sensational craving for fish-n-chips. So I ran to the store today, and tonight I'm going to attempt homemade fish-n-chips, since going out for them is not an option. What I won't have is good homemade fries(a bag of frozen will have to do) and no malt vinegar on hand, but otherwise...wish me luck. I'll report my findings sometime over the weekend.

As to the weekend ahead, we're thinking about doing something spontaneous. Don't know what, but it's the beginning of spring break for Abigail, and since next week she has her second dentist appointment, we thought we should do something fun over the weekend.

So today, I thought I'd share some links for some food blogs that I have really been enjoying lately. I don't share links often enough I think. And there are so many good blogs worth noting, it's hard to pick a few, but if you're looking for something good, check out these guys.

First up is Hooked On Heat. Every time I visit this blog I get a serious hankering for Indian food. I need to do something about that one of these days too.

Next you should visit the doctor-to-be, Cooking Is Medicine from down south. Claire is such a sweetie, and always has an eye towards lightening something up a bit. She could cook for me anyday.

A newer blog to me is My Husband Cooks. Their photography is simply stunning, and the recipes as well. The banter between hubby and wife is precious. And speaking of precious, be sure to welcome their new addition!

Simplicity is what I think of when I visit Talk of Tomatoes. Janelle does what Sandra Lee wishes she could do. Use good ingredients in a quick and easy manner to produce spectacular results.

If you're in the mood for a chuckle, be sure to stop by Brilynn at Jumbo Empanadas. Some days the kitchen is out to get her, but the food always looks incredible.

And finally, if you have a craving for some BBQ, you chould check out Sylvie's kitchen at Soul Fusion Kitchen. Silvie has actually won contests with her BBQ, my mouth waters just looking at her pictures!

Thanks for the link! I hope that your fish turns out well. I love fish. Poor Abigail. Does she have something to look forward to AFTER the dentist? That always helped me get through something I didn't want to do. If there was something I was really excited about after, I just said, "Well, I have to do this to get to what I want to do." Anyway, hope you have fun this weekend and that next week goes well. BTW, I'll have a "lightened" peanut butter brownie coming soon. :-)

Oh, and thanks for the compliments!

Thanks for the idea Claire! Her aunt and uncle will be visiting later in the afternoon on that day, so maybe that will help her get through the visit. I will be so glad when this one is over-this is the last of the major dental work. After this is just cleanings and bacteria checks. (I hope)

Ah bummer! I missed it.
