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.
Cook's Tour: Here's an idea whose time has come... Alison Cook is doing a weekly roundup of her top ten current obsessions and food favorites. On the inaugural list is crawfish fried rice and the Exmoor toasts at Feast, among eight others. Our only wish? That there were more lovely photos for the entries.
The Wynk: If you thought your mom made the best peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in the world, Melissa is here to show you that you're wrong. Sorry. But homemade toasted almond butter, blueberry jam and cinnamon swirl bread pretty much beat any other concoction we've heard of. See how she made this treat on a whim -- it'll encourage you to start making better use of your own freezer.
Houston Uncorked: Although she's currently expecting and can no longer do her regular wine reviews (at least for the next nine months or so...), Mandee is still posting short and sweet restaurant reviews, like this on point recap of Tiny Boxwoods.
Coffee Corner: Enjoy the fleeting days of our cool weather with this recipe for roasted pork from Mike. Sadly, fluffy sink cat not included.
Hungry In Houston: Adam wraps up four local taco places in a quick and compact post that gets straight to the point: Are they any good, what's best to order there and which is the best of the four? Get the scoop -- and the answers -- along with some colorful photos here.
Robb Walsh: Last but not least, Robb asks a terribly tempting question in his latest blog entry: Is Elysian Fields the Kobe of lamb? This is a question to which we need to find out the answer...with our own mouth.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
