Introducing a roundup of great recipes and reviews from the Culinary Content Network this week
The Adventures of MJ and Hungryman — Brie, Fig, and Pear Panini
The Adventures of MJ and Hungryman are a dynamic duo that learned to cook and eat healthy due to health constraints. Now working on a Masters in Nutrition and a dietetic internship, they couldn’t be happier blogging away about their food, recipes, and nutritional feats. In this post, the duo makes a delectable Brie, fig, and pear panini. (This one will be on our list of what to make for lunch.)
Stir and Strain — Kiss of Fire
Stir and Strain blogs about cocktails, "recipes, growing stuff, making stuff and drinking stuff." One mission was to integrate seasonally appropriate ingredients into all cocktails, something which she admittedly, sometimes forgets to do. Here, she provides recipes for making Kiss of Fire (Aperol and cayenne jellies).
Peanut Butter & Peppers — Louie’s Café/Famers' Market and Sweet Potato Hand Pies
Peanut Butter & Peppers named her blog after her favorite foods, has lost 30 pounds over the past few years, and has set her new goal and trying not to count calories. She strives for a healthy and balanced diet, with indulgences in moderation. In her blog, she’ll share recipes for all of her success and her flops, so you don’t make the same mistakes. Here, she dishes on day two of a press trip to Baton Rouge, and her first stop in Louie’s Café.
Hungry Happenings — Cheese Ball Birthday Cake
Hungry Happenings is a blog of festive food for special occasions. Here, Hungry Happenings gives an alternative to the sweet cake normally served on birthdays, instead serving up a big block of cheese with crackers!
Food Babbles — Strawberry Gateau Basque
Food Babbles is a mom of three, a "life-saver, baker, dessert-maker, amateur photographer, and just a girl with a huge passion for food." In this post, Food Babbles tried her hand at making a gateau Basque, and at least from the photos, seems to have had overwhelming success.
Almost Veggies — Village Kitchen
Almost Veggies is a student at Le Cordon Bleu, writing true stories about food and service around Dallas and Houston. In this post, Almost Veggies dishes on Village Kitchen, a restaurant that not only serves a Fruity Pebbles milkshake ("the most exciting milkshake known to mankind"), but that has many more delicious menu items to share.
Fork Spoon Knife — Savoring the Last of the Peaches
Fork Spoon Knife is all about food, travel, and photos. Here, this blog shares stunning photos of peaches, something we’re saying goodbye to as summer comes to an end.
