link-o-rama

It's been another busy week. This week's links are short but oh so sweet...

Even if you don't have a birthday party coming up, these birthday cakes are pretty to look at. Something about them makes me very happy. [via the Kitchn]

Recipes for a D.I.Y. pizza and prosecco party from Bon Appetit [via BA]

I am obsessed with Vietnamese food right now. Might be because Hanco's opened in our neighborhood and I can't stop eating there, but probably because it's so fresh and light--a refreshing change from all this heavy winter food. Luisa over at Wednesday Chef did a rice noodle salad that looks absolutely delectable and dinner party-worthy. [via the Wednesday Chef]

Or if you're still clinging to these last few cold days (and I know a few of you are) Jewels of NY, a food blog I just discovered, has a "last winter supper" of rack of lamb, parsnips in parsley butter, warm cabbage salad, and chocolate pots de crème. I love the photography on this site, simply gorgeous. [via Jewels of NY]

This might only be interesting to me, but I can't get over these shots from Martha Stewart's prop closet. Check out all those cake stands!

Great links! Jewels of NY might be a new favorite & I loved seeing Martha's dish pantry - thanks for finding!

Dan, at this point, I have no choice but celebrate your eternal love for this man.

Lisa said...

We all have our crushes. For Dan, it's Anthony Bourdain and Gwen Stefani. For me, it's Nigella, Dwyane Wade, Steve Nash, and Tom Petty.

i have to tell you: at this moment, bobby flay is making "his version" of chicken pot pie with sweet potatoes and chipotle. groan... :)

Daniel said...

How many beloved classics can Bobby Flay add chipotle to?

"Tonight on Throwdown, I'm challenging Gina Popademetrius of the Swing & Gnaw in Saskatoon with my chipotle lobster thermador.

Next week, check out my chipotle baked Alaska!"

Daniel said...

Having said all that, I must add, in fairness to Chef Flay, that I've made his chipotle-and-cream sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving, and they were pretty freakin' delicious.

Lisa said...

POP: Ha! The "secret" ingredient strikes again.

Between my comments on your blog and Daniel's rant, we care way waay too much about this show.

Although Swing & Gnaw is a fantastic name for a restaurant.

Vanessa said...

Gina Popademetrius is going to google herself and find you this way, Dan!

When I grow up I want to be Martha's prop collector/ stylist. Notice how plain all the dishes are.

Not to disparage Dan's creativity but the Swig and Gnaw is a real place in Vermont near the Canadian border.

Ooh...busted!
