Our 14 Favorite Go-To Websites For Making Home Cooked Meals Last week, I wrote about my top 10 favorite cookbooks that have taught me to love home cooking. After posting that article we had a commenter ask us to reveal what our favorite online cooking website were, which could serve as cheap alternatives to the more expensive hard (and soft) cover cookbooks. Personally, I’ve spent a ton of time over the last couple of years perusing food blogs — some VERY fancy ones meant for far more experienced chefs than I, and some simpler ones (which are more my speed). I go weak in the knees for beautiful food photography, and I’m always intrigued to see how food bloggers use text, lighting, and unique props to make their recipes sing.

I’ve never been one of those people who can skip breakfast (or any meal for that matter). Even if it has to be something totally quick and easy, I make myself a proper meal every single morning. Be kind, rewind – Cake weekend au citron et confit de clémentines à la vanille As I was diligently peeling a stampede of organic lemons to turn them into neat candied squares – a pretty lengthy task if you consider all the steps involved – the pungent scent brought down memories of a now long-gone day. Rewind. As Guillaume wakes up – or more accurately, as I push the snooze button of our alarm clock every two minutes, giving him a repeat-hug to gently get him to emerge from his dreamless sleep – I suddenly realise that today is my much-longed-for day-off.

Dulce de leche, so easy to make I was at my mom’s house this past weekend watching college basketball and helping her cook. She was going to make dulce de leche to use in several things she was making. Dulce de leche is incredibly easy to make. All you do is heat a can of sweetened condensed milk in water for several hours until the condensed milk transforms into this amazing caramel treat inside. My mom usually does this in a pan of boiling water for a few hours, but I told her I had seen it done in a crock pot. Five food blogs worth following There are zillions of food blogs out there, dozens of hunger blogs and plenty about farming and environmental issues. But there are not so many that deal with the intersection of food systems, agriculture, nutrition, demographics, environment, economics and international development. Here are a few we rely on to keep up on the feeding-the-world front. Guardian Global Development A go-to place for news, features, analysis, graphics and background information about the challenges facing developing countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

Quinoa and lentil salad with asparagus, mint and haloumi Haloumi is a great source of calcium and a good low-fat cheese to include in salads, I love that it’s ‘meaty’ and substantial, albeit a little squeaky texture. It’s especially wonderful when sliced and pan fried. For something different, I marinate a whole block of haloumi in lime juice, then pan fry it whole, before slicing and serving, it turns out seared and crispy on the outside with a smooth and creamy centre. 200g puy lentils1 tablespoon olive oil1 tablespoon red wine vinegarsea salt and freshly ground black pepper100g quinoa, rinsed well16 spears asparagus, woody ends removed, spears cut into 2.5cm pieces1 x 180g piece haloumi, cut into thin stripsJuice and finely grated zest of 2 limes, plus extra lime cheeks, to serve1 punnet (250g) cherry tomatoes, quartered3 spring onions, trimmed and finely sliced1 long green chilli, deseeded, thinly sliced1 large handful mint leaves, very roughly choppedCrusty bread, to serve Serves 2 as a main or 4 as a side

Lunchbox Treats – Twenty Ideas for Sandwich Fillings « The In my years of providing nutritious meals to my family, the single most fraught event of any given day must surely be the ritual of Making School Lunches. If ever my children have a finicky food preference, it will be outed the moment it is placed between two slices of bread. It is a morning – or evening, depending on how busy the day is – endurance test in many households and is often enough to defeat most parents. No wonder we resort to the constant default position of Vegemite, or peanut butter, or Just Tomato Please, stuffed between white bread, crusts removed. We send our children off to school, ever hopeful that this, today, will be the day they eat it all up. What follows has been gleaned from friends, my days in playgroup, some happy days spent volunteering in school canteens and some ideas forums around the world.

Recipes and Tips for Healthy Travel If there is one passion I have beyond cooking and eating, it is traveling. In just one week I will be on a plane with my husband, heading for the tropical paradise of Kauai. It has been a dream of mine for many years to visit this Hawaiian island, and since my best friend is currently living there, I knew that this was the perfect opportunity. The only bummer about this incredible dream coming true? Oh, the 38-hours it will take to get there from Copenhagen.

sweet God saw you getting tired, And a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around you And whispered “Come to Me”. With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay. A Golden Heart stopped beating, Hard working hands to rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
