Does your RSS reader ever get out of control? Blog posts pile up for days until there are thousands of unread posts taunting you… That unread items number in Google Reader can be intimidating! Especially when it crosses the four digit threshold.
I just spent the last 4 hours going through all of the unread items in my Google Reader. I’m honestly not sure where the week went. I was busy working on the Forgotten Foodies site (which, I am happy to announce, is now up and running) and a few other things around the house, and suddenly it’s Friday and I had neglected to read any blogs all week long! I am caught up now, though (for a few minutes until it starts to fill up again…), and ready to share my favorite blog posts from the past week (as selected in the past few hours)!
- Have you ever made toasted pasta (you heard me correctly… toasted pasta!)? If not, this Toasted Mushroom Pasta from Gimme Some Oven is a great introduction. I think it’s absolutely brilliant!
- While we’re talking about pasta, check out this Baked Rigatoni with Kale from The Kitchen Sink. It just looks so warm and inviting… and what a great way to use up all of the kale I will most likely get in our CSA share again this year!
- Did you know you can make potato chips in your microwave? I couldn’t believe it until I saw this post about How To Make Potato Chips in the Microwave from Savory Sweet Life. You can be sure this is on my must-try list. Definitely beats deep frying!
- You didn’t actually think I would pick only savory recipes for my Friday Favorites, did you? Have no fear, this Chocolate Rice Pudding with Caramel Creme Chantilly from Baking Obsession will satisfy your sweet tooth!
