Sigh. I’m in Austin…a great foodie city…plenty of dining options all around me. And all I can think about is my own kitchen! How weird and wrong is that! I’ve been bookmarking recipes like a fiend all week and I can’t even think of making most of them for another two weeks.
Until I can actually get my hands dirty with some flour and chop up sticks of butter…here’s some food porn links…things I wish I was making. And while we’re at it…what are you making this weekend? (I hear it’s raining somethin’ fierce in DC so I know ya’ll are stuck inside!)
- There’s been an influx of blood orange recipes lately…anyone notice that? I’ve never cooked with the things…but they look so pretty! Folks have been buzzing about this blood orange polenta upside down cake from Bon Appetit but I’m intrigued by this blood orange yogurt cake from The Atlantic.
- A few DC food bloggers and I are in the early stages of planning a bake sale to benefit earthquake victims so I’m thinking about possible things to make. These vegan chocolate ginger orange cupcakes seem interesting.
- Modern Domestic made St. Patrick’s Day Guinness Cupcakes. I. Die. For boozey baking.
- Being in Texas has me feeling all extra Mexican and stuff so of course I’m thinking a Tres Leches Cake sounds delish. This recipe is also from my new foodie/blogger/girl crush, Patricia Jinich. I recently heard Patricia on the Kojo Nnamdi show’s Local Restaurant World Tour: Mexican Cuisine and just loved her passion and love f or the food and Mexican history.
That’s it for now folks…I’m off to get some Mexican food for breakfast. Cause nothing says healthy like refried beans and tortillas early in the mornin’.
