Do you Stumble?
I do. And I don’t mean tripping and falling over things. Although, as we know, I do more than my share of that too.
StumbleUpon has quickly become a big part of my blogging existence. In case you’re not familiar with it and its benefits, Gigi over at KludgyMom wrote a terrific tutorial on StumbleUpon which helped me get started. Now? It’s my biggest referral source.
Over the past couple of months I’ve become an avid Stumbler and as a result have found inspiration in places I’d never have known about otherwise. This comes in handy when I feel like I’m in the middle of a cooking rut, aka right now. So I took the time to go through some of my (many) favorites and found a handful of recipes I’d like to become more-than-just-good-friends with…if you know what I mean.
Who doesn’t love the cheddar biscuits at Red Lobster? Emily at Joyful Abode has a recipe for them which I’m dying to make and then devour the results of. I might share. I might not share. It depends. Because words do not describe the way the sight of these biscuits makes me feel.
I completely fell in love with these brownies over at How to Cook Like Your Grandmother. Look at them. They’re the epitomy of glorious. Who wouldn’t want to eat at least a pan full? And if you don’t…hand yours over, I’ll take care of them for you. And whoops, my pants just got tighter.
These roasted onions are called mezgaldi and they need to be a part of my daily life. Kay from Kayotic Kitchen (love the name!) showed her readers how to make them, and I feel that it’s my duty to spread the word. And the taste. To my taste buds. Because I know Rob’s not eating them. She also has a terrific chicken stroganoff recipe which I’m deeply intrigued by – beef stroganoff (or a variety thereof) being a dish served regularly at my house.
The best part is, when you find a terrific article or recipe or post, you want to learn more. Before you know it, you have even more blogs to keep up with in your reader and have no idea where the time to keep up with them will come from. Wait. Did I say this was the best part?
Incidentally, Gigi also has a StumbleUpon group in her community at The Blog Frog, where each member submits a new post for the week and asks the other members to Stumble it for them. Coincidentally, Wednesday is the day we submit new posts – you should check it out.
Do you Stumble? What do you think of my picks?
