make this: great links for the weekend

July 15, 2010

Woah. Life is something ridiculous at the moment. All I want to do is bask in the glorious sunshine, play with my cats and cook fun things to blog about here. All I get to do is be too busy for all that.

Okay, that’s not strictly true. A lot of why I’ve been busy has been down to things like going to the theatre, and seeing great films. Oh and celebrating birthdays. But I’ve also done my fair share of working my behind off. Case in point: it is 9:32pm and I am more than ready for bed.

Instead of whining more, how about I share with you some incredible stuff to help you in your journey to be entertained by food. That’s why you’re here, right?

1. I want to make these apricot crostatas a lot.

2. Need some amazing snacky summertime food? Not just in the mood for hummus though? Check it.


How about smitten kitchen making me drool every.single.time I stop by?! Gosh. I want to make this peach blueberry cobbler too. Unfortunately my kitchen is already 108F so yeah. No.

4. Want some extra food photography tips? The New York Times has got you covered.

5. This is a post after my own heart: Jamie Oliver’s DIY curry pastes. Hell YES. Except not right now. I’m too hot.

6. All I really want is this:

Oh and I’m going here this weekend:

Be back soon, hopefully with some inspired posting and food love.

What food are you craving right NOW?
