Top Foodies Links For January

If you’re finding that you would use some cooking inspiration, here are some ideas from some of the most talented food bloggers out there.

A meal to cook in 20 minutes

In a bit of hurry? These french bread pizzas from The Comfort of cooking are perfect for a quick lunch that doesn’t compromise its deliciousness. And it’s a great way to reuse a day old baguette. You will need cheese that melts, olives, chopped vegetables (I will try this with some chorizo) and around 20 minutes of your time.

Something new and easy

Feel like trying something new for dinner? What about these shiitake bok choy dumplings from Kelsey from Happy Olks? I love how beautiful and easy to make these look. I would almost say: if you make these, don’t keep them to yourself only. And if you live near Barcelona, invite me over 🙂

Something new and complex

I am enchanted by Teri’s (from the Spoon Fork Bacon Blog) Korean Kabocha Squash Porridge. It looks so exotic to me! It’s a silky squash soup with rice balls (I have to see where I can find rice flour in Barcelona). I think I would add a bit of cayenne peppers to this, but it looks, oh, so, so delicious.

Something sweet

If you’re looking for something sweet to give you a bit of energy kick, why not try this homemade snickers recipe from Ashley Rodriguez from Not Without Salt? You will need peanuts, caramel and chocolate.
