White Lotus Cooks

Months ago, a friend treated me to homemade egg rolls. I haven’t stopped thinking about them since. Searching for a egg roll recipe (and the newfound knowledge that what I really wanted was a Spring Roll) led me to White Lotus Cooks, a delicious blog full of asian food, sweet treats, party ideas and family tid-bits.

Book Review: Notes on Cooking

I spent a morning in Grandma Kathy’s kitchen learning to bake bread. To some that may sound like no big deal. For someone like me, whose college roommate once said that I could only cook “what I can unwrap and stick in the microwave”, it was huge.

Kate’s blog boasts wonderful recipes and some of the most wonderful food-centric photography I’ve seen.

One Hungry Mama

One Hungry Mama is a family friendly food blog that is filled to its bloggy gills with recipes, advice and information. I love that Stacie’s recipes and adaptations include recommended ages and in some cases, tips for how to make a recipe suitable for the developing digestive systems of babies.

Snapdragon Ink

If you put the two most important parts of me together – motherhood and writing – and you stir in a little resolution about personal fulfillment and mental stability, you get this blog. Like most mothers out there, I absolutely adore my children and, like most mothers out there, I live dangerously close to that bend in the road, the one you’re not supposed to go around. The writing you find here keeps me away from that bend. It gives me just a bit more road. It slows life down long enough for me to remember the details. It helps me to focus on the good stuff and handle the bad stuff with more grace and humour. And there’s always room in my life for more grace and humour.
