A Detour if You Please

Dinnertime has recently become my least favorite time of day. Wanna guess why? Here's the reason: I can't think of anything to cook for dinner.

I do actually like to cook. (I do not like the cleaning up part after.) I love cookbooks. As I've mentioned before, I need a recipe for most things if I want them to end up edible.

As with just about everything else, when in doubt, I turn to the internet. There has got to be someone out there who will tell me how to cook something I will want to eat. This is a daily thing with me and as a result I've become somewhat obsessed with food blogs. What's not to like what with all the lovely pictures of delicious treats? Desserts have always been my favorite part of a meal and I have the waistline to prove it. Trust me, I would eat cake for dinner everyday if I could. When I get a new cookbook, I first flip to the desserts section. Always.

So I've added another blogroll to the sidebar that are strictly food blogs/websites. Suggestions are definitely welcome here if there's a truly awesome foodie site that I don't have listed. Happy eating!

Since you're a desserts girl you definitely need to check out Bakerella (www.bakerella.com). It'll make your sweet tooth do somersaults.

I'm not very fond of cooking but, my sister is. She's been using recipes out of Fresh Food Fast - Weeknight Meals and Fresh Food Fast (both by Cooking Light magazine). As the official taste tester I can vouch that they're yummy. My sister's favorite thing about the recipes is that you don't need 10,000 ingredients to make the meals.

Awesome! Thanks Jen D. :) And I totally agree that the best recipes are the least complicated ones.
