Show and Tell

When I was a kid in elementary school, one of my favorite days was Friday because we had "Show and Tell" where we could bring things in and share them with the class. My inbox has been flooded with some really good blog feeds lately and I thought it would be fun to share them with you. Enjoy! You can subscribe to any of these blogs as I do and will get updates in your inbox every time a post is made. I will have more for you next week, stay tuned. Oh... if you scroll down to the bottom of the blog, you will see a place where you can sign up to be a follower of THIS BLOG!

One of my all time favorite food blogs is Orangette... written by Molly Wizenberg of Seattle who has managed to parlay her blog (over 4,000 readers a day!) into a book deal, A Homemade Life and she now has a monthly column in Bon Appetit . Molly and her husband Brandon have recently opened a restaurant called Delancey in Seattle so some of her blog now has chronicled being a restauranteur. They feature what look to be rustic and amazing pizzas and her most recent post is about the restaurant. Many of her posts include recipes and techniques as well as excellent photography. Another thing I like about Molly's blog is that she has never accepted advertisers, even though I am sure that she has had many offers!

Wes Davidson (yes, my husband) has a blog about moving to and living in Hawaii. His recent post on the Hilo Breakwater is particularly interesting and I learned quite a bit about the breakwater and harbor that I look out at while I am at my desk. I love history and history that is releveant to me even more.

The Purple Foodie is a blog done by Shaeen, a 20 something foodie from Mumbai. She bakes up lots of goey goodies that she finds in her cookbook collection. Her most recent post was for some awesome looking brownies.

Another Blog I truly enjoy on a daily basis is Wandering Chopsticks. The blogger does not reveal her name, but she lives in Southern California and is VietNamese. She posts a lot about Asian food, but also wanders around Southern California finding wonderful food of all kinds. She is diligent to post every day, which is something I have not been able to do, but I want to share her blog with you. This post is about Osso Buco, one of my favorite fall and winter dishes.

And finally one of the blog sites that is important to my life is the FBI Blogs, that is For the Big Island Blogs. It is a compilation of blogs written by residents of the Big Island of Hawaii. Damon Tucker is the creator and grand instigator of the blog roll and has done a lot to promote each of these varying blogs. They are written about a multitude of subjects and some have fantastic photography and interesting ideas as well as news about Hawaii. I invite you to visit and take a look at some of the big island's best blogs.

Aww, thanks! What nice words. It's always nice to feel appreciated. :)

I LOVE orangette, fun stuff, thank you for the introduction! And, of course, I love Seattle. Our farm is approx an hour and a half west of Seattle, via ferry, across a bridge, over the hill and through the dell, on the Olympic Peninsula - wonderful area! Can't wait to check out Delancey. Maybe in October when we fly out of Seattle. Best, Ann
