Don't those fries look scrumptious? Here's the link to the recipe, in case you don't want to waste another second.
This week's favorite food blog currently ranks in the top ten of American Food Bloggers "America's Best Food Blogs." It's Lindsay and Bjork Ostrom's Pinch of Yum. Despite the ranking, I was hesitant at first. Lindsay and Bjork don't live in a major foodie hotspot like NYC or San Francisco. They live in Minnesota. They are neither chefs nor restaurateurs.
Lindsay is the blogger. She cooks, writes, creates. Bjork is the tech support and deals with the money. They're an awfully cute couple and they actually post the blog's monthly financial reports. So successful is their blog that Lindsay has quit her day job as an elementary school teacher.
The first thing I noticed was that she's a great blogger. Her voice is friendly, upbeat, confident, and funny. How often do recipes make you laugh out loud?
It's Lindsay's recipes that have kept my attention. As she says herself, she just loves food! It works for her, too. She experiments a lot and has created plenty of wonderful, doable recipes. Bored with breakfast? Check hers out. Do you like pasta? You've come to the right place. From what I can tell, she's also rather partial to "bowls". She has a whole section for them in her recipe index.
Then, of course, there are those street cart fries. . . That's more than a "pinch of yum", if you ask me!
Pinch of Yum -- just yummy!
Surely, the past, present, and future connect in this miraculous state we call life. In this light, history and all human experience are ever-present. Wouldn't it be nice, then, if we could enjoy each other, if we could appreciate and celebrate our differences? Let us love! Let us have fun. Let us toast each other and wish each other well. Now, in our awareness, is the time to be happy, to do our best, to live fully to our purest, highest standards.
