Blogger News

  • Elise has an informative post on gnocchi. She discloses that the secret to a light gnocchi is to use older potatoes (because they are drier), and bake them to keep them as dry as possible. My paternal grandmothers (Italian and Spanish) told my mom the same thing!
  • Food blog discoveries: Rice and Noodles, Jumbo Empanadas.
  • Homesick Texan has posted a recipe on a delicious-looking Czech pastry that I'll have to try, kolaches.
  • Kathy continues to eat at an extraordinary rate. She will soon be winging home to Hawai'i where I'm sure she will regale us with further gastronomic adventures. I can hardly wait!
  • I just received my Cupcake Courier in the mail. Of course, you know what this means . . . I will have to bake some cupcakes. That's just the way it is. Ah, decisions, decisions . . . .

Kathy is amazing, isn't she? Whenever I go to her site, I'm prepared to learn not only something fab that she's eaten, but also to drool over her pics. Drives me absolutely nuts!

How lucky you are to be able to get pomegranates! We only get them around fall, as they're shipped in from Israel. I think Italy produces some too but again, they're available only during a certain time of the year. I *heart *pomegranates!

They've become very popular on the mainland. I find them at our local Asian superstore, and at Whole Foods

Thanks for the roundup! I don't often get time to read my favorite foodblogs so sometimes I miss intersting posts, like the gnocchi over at Elise's!
