@Irishk,

I bought collard greens once. They're supposed to be really high in Vitamin A, but they're a pain to clean (very sandy). Plus, I found a worm in mine! I decided there's got to be a better way of getting Vitamin A.

Yes, ditto with spinach, Irishk.
I love it, but the washing & washing & washing to remove all the grit!
During the really stringent water restrictions we had here (drought) I resorted to frozen spinach instead. Just couldn't justify using all that water! (No worms, either! Wink )
So have you found this better source of Vitamin A yet?

Much too long, mckenzie.
I'm glad that sharing your knowledge of southern cooking lured you back to A2K! Smile
Enjoy your holiday & if you have the time, report back on the most exciting meal you experienced on your trip. I love these sorts of details! Smile

@msolga,
There hasn't been, nor will there be anything too exciting, msolga. We're renting a condo in Arizona at the moment and will be renting a house in Florida. Vacations, for us, are much like at home, we cook for ourselves, with perhaps the odd seafood "to go" dinner when we get to Florida. I know, from previous trips, that there is a very nice seafood market nearby the house, as well, so we are looking forward to that.

I came across a site a few days ago that you might enjoy as much as I am.

http://thedaringkitchen.com/

Here's how they describe their site:

Quote:
In November 2006, Lisa of La Mia Cucina and Ivonne of Cream Puffs in Venice decided to challenge themselves to bake pretzels for the very first time using the same recipe. They each went ahead and posted about it on November 18, 2006.

Having enjoyed that experience tremendously, they decided to try it again the next month, this time choosing to bake biscotti. And to make matters even better, they were joined by a few more food bloggers.

As the months went by, their baking group continued to grow, until it was finally decided that this "little baking group" had to have a name and The Daring Bakers were born!

The Daring Cooks were formed in 2009 as a way to learn how to become better home cooks. The idea spread like wildfire with 1000's of people who also wished to learn more joined in on the monthly challenges.

Today, The Daring Bakers and The Daring Cooks span the world as bakers/cooks of all nationalities come together once a month to try something new in the kitchen!


Members have their own blogs and write about their experience with the monthly recipe challenge. Members are required to participate and are booted out if they miss more than 4 challenges a year. They also do cookbook reviews, product reviews

You don't have to be a member to view the blogs or their recipe archive though. The blogs and recipe archive are what I'm enjoying. I am contemplating joining them, but want to first get a better idea of how costly some of these recipe challenge ingredients might be.

Here's their recipe archive:

http://thedaringkitchen.com/recipe


And here's the start of their blog roll. It is in two sections, one for bakers and one for cooks. There are hundreds of bloggers from around the world, mostly appear to be home cooks, but there are many in the business of baking and cooking.

http://thedaringkitchen.com/blogroll/bakers

http://thedaringkitchen.com/blogroll/cooks


They've received a few mentions in the press too:

Thanks, ehBeth.
I'll have to check that one out at a later date, because I received this message (which made me smile) this time:

@msolga,
I finally got my wits together to export my flog (food blog) bookmarks - they seem to not work as actual links, but googleing the titles should work on at least some of the lot of them. (I haven't checked every single one of them lately). Hint, sometime the recipe I was after is listed before the name of the blog. Somehow I exported them once before to my yahoo account and they worked as links, but that's an old list.

This can snowball into even more food blogs, as many of the bloggers list their own favorite food blogs..

@ossobuco,
I figured out that I can export them to my yahoo mail as links, but not to a2k as a whole group, which makes sense when I think about it.
I could export them to delicious.com to share, but I still haven't gotten a grip to doing that.

@msolga,
I'm sorry I couldn't get them into links. I'd bore us all to death doing it one at a time. I said I'd post these years ago, but utterly failed to figure out how to get this far. I think if I get my gumption up that I can transfer them to delicious.com, but I'm otherwise occupied for the moment..

You'll notice an italophile influence but I'm interested in a lot of other types of food. Some links I've lost with computer tharn.

Sometimes the selection starts with the blog title, then maybe the person's name who did it, then the recipe.
Or, some twist on that.

I suppose I should cull them, but there are some good flogs in that list, when I do revisit. David Lebovitz remains a favorite - takes scrolling to find him.

I'll save my investigations for when I have lots of time to explore. (I know one site always leads to (at least) one other! Smile

I just looked at the first ten. Didn't like the first one, Serious Eats, liked the next eight, slightly less enthused about the next.
I need to follow up so I can cull...

I really hope you can access this link outside of Oz, because it's one of my favourite food programs & I think you'll enjoy watching. It's Luke Nguyen's Vietnam
He's lots fun, doesn't take himself too seriously & the program's full of interesting information ... not just about food, it's also a great virtual visit to various parts of Vietnam.

This is Luke, he was a refuge from Vietnam & now runs his own restaurant in Sydney.
http://media.sbs.com.au/shows/upload_media/site_45_rand_202617410_luke_nguyen_interview.jpg
He'll show you how to cook food like this & lots, lots more. He's terrific!
