October nibbles

  • Gives new meaning to I can haz cheezburger - Cheese & Burger Society.  My favourite? The Mona Lisa or The Couch Potato for those indulgent days. Heck, I won't complain about the Macho Nacho either.
  • An excellent tutorial on how to temper chocolate for so you can make those lovely  white chocolate mendiants at home.
  • In the mood for a slightly healthier milkshake option? Look no further than the spud shake. Yup, it uses mashed potatoes for that rich creamy texture sans cream. Nice one, right?
  • Which also brings me to the FFF* for the month. As usual, drumroll please...... and the winner is.....The Daily Spud! Hailing from Ireland (where else?), The Spud claims to really really love potatoes. And it shows. From dips to breads, the ubiquitous potato salad (of course), pies and even desserts. All with either a focus on potatoes or a decidedly Irish spin. You gotta love a one-track mind, right?

Wow, that bedroom dining is an interesting stat. I love The Daily Spud. It's one of the very first food blogs I started reading. Such great recipes and I adore Ireland.

I've been meaning to try the carrot-feta combo for some time now. I have carrots at home now so thanks for the reminder!
