From Too Many Chefs -

Posts of the Week

Each week, we pick three posts we particularly enjoyed over the last week from the vast community of excellent food bloggers. Maybe these posts were funny, maybe they were great recipes or a particularly well-written review of a restaurant. Maybe they just were the right post for us at the right time. If you haven't read them, this should give you a chance to go back and catch them before they disappear into the archives.

A. A Spoonful of Sugar uses considerably more than a spoonful of sugar to make this decadent Scottish butter tablet. Angela uses a recipe from Stewart Russell to put together this sweet not-quite fudge, not-quite-toffee confection that I'd never heard of before.

1. View From a Kitchen offers sage advice on How NOT to Ice a Cake. tinyfork had a similarly bad cake-related experience the same day.

I. The final spot this week goes to Edible Tales, but I'll admit some favoritism here. The proprietress has set me straight on the right way to use a French butter crock. We bought one of these two-part devices in Portland and ended up with rancid butter. I wasn't adding anywhere near enough water to the mix. Learn about these crocks and where to get them on her site.

Special bonus selection - be sure to check out this Homer Simpson-esque sandwich from a student in Warwick, England from back in May. He proclaimed he'd eat the whole 8591 calorie thing, and he did eventually. Oh sandwich, how could I ever stay mad at you?

See you all next week.
