Three posts enter. Three posts leave. We pick three posts every week from the blogosphere of food sites we love. Here's this week's holiday themed batch in no particular order:
1. Becks & Posh is not only the name of a great newcomer to the blogosphere but also is Cockney rhyming slang for "That food website we like so much." True story. This week, B&P make some nice Spiced Marmalade Marzipan Tartlets.
A. I am from the Pepe LePew school of French, but you don't have to be a full-on Francophone to know that C'est moi qui l'ai fait ! is on to something with Vin chaud aux Úpices.. Some might translated that as "hot spiced wine", but I know it really means "Hot wine of picklesthat smells good and makes your head ache in the morning". True story. Get your French-English dictionary out and translate the recipe or send it through Google's language tools.
I. This weekend we bought a Christmas tree and hung our wreath on our door. I'm listening to Nina Simone's "Little Girl Blue" (a great song sung over the background of "Good King Wenceslas") as I type this entry. So yes, I'm in the spirit of the season. So is Life Begins @ 30 which is running a two-part series on buying local foodie presents this holiday. I'm not in the Bay Area, but I may just have to work up a parallel list for Chicago food lovers.
Now if it would only snow.
