Sampler Plate: This Week In Food Blogs

Each week, we put together a sampler plate of the most interesting links from both local and national food blogs. Know a blog we should be paying particular attention to? Leave the address in the comments section below.

The Wynk: Melissa shows off a beautiful homemade veggie pizza, complete with homemade dough from Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day, which we really need to check out.

Coffee Corner: While we cannot deny the fact that Mike is a mad genius (his luscious pork rillettes speak to that), we have to draw the line somewhere. And that somewhere is making everything into aspic. Sorry, Mike.

29-95: The Chron's we-promise-we're-not-affiliated-with-the-Chronicle-cause-we're-young-and-hip site has brought one of our favorite food bloggers on board, Guns and Tacos. He shares a truly hilarious tale of his triumphant taco-hunting expedition with us in "A Taco Hunter Strikes Gold."

Chili Bob's Houston Eats: We're reluctant to even share this, since Chili Bob got these particular eats at our favorite Mexican restaurant -- one which is mercifully never packed to the gills with throngs of gabachos. But if you want to see some delicious and dangerously addictive enchiladas, head on over.

Houston Wok: Back with a new banner for the new year ("Your Daily Dose of Food Porn"), David has a recipe that he promises will beat back the blustery weather this week: canh dua chua, or Chinese pickled mustard soup. We want some right now.

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
