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 ( 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.
