A Mouthwatering Blog

I know food has nothing to to with projects per se, but since cooking always turns into a project for me it seems relevant.  I had to share this blog that I am in LOVE with.  It is called My Kitchen Cafe.  I mean, i really think this picture above says it all.  Don't you just want to dive into that carmel corn?  That is what she posted today, and i am sure it is delectable. I know this without trying it Because the author, Melanie, and I must have the same palette. There has been nothing, on her blog, that I have not wanted to make again.  I don't know how she does it, but she has great regular updates with mouthwatering pictures and vivid descriptions.  She has a plethora of recipes in her archives.  Everything I have made from there has been so easy, with common ingredients that I either already have on hand or that I would actually know where to locate in a grocery store.  It has become an extension of my much worn family recipe book for no fail recipes.  I just couldn't keep it to myself. 

Some of my favorites are:

Okay, really this list could go on and on.  I just made some to die for blueberry muffins with a lemon sugar topping from there that I can't stop snacking on.  It is just the kind of reference I need for my meals, because I just don't have the time to try out a bunch of new recipes without having a good referral for them first.  And she has certainly earned my trust in her opinion.  I have not tried a bad recipe from her site, yet!  Happy meal planning!

Kimmers I LOVE this site too. I make my menu from it every week! Did you know Melanie is from Billings and I grew up with her and her family?!?! I'm so glad you discovered her blog, it really is the best!!!

I've also been loving your blog too! I've been checking it almost everyday. I'm so impressed that you keep posting so regularly...I don't know how you do it! My list of projects is growing and growing so thanks for the ideas!!!

Yum!!! You know I love my caramel popcorn, so I will definitely be trying this recipe. It calls for vanilla whey that the powder stuff that my hubby puts in milk? If so, I may be good to go!! Thanks for sharing! And yes, that soup is amazing. I think I will make that again soon!

Kenners, i am so glad you like the blog. It has been really fun to do. I can't believe you grew up with Melanie. My sisters and i all pass her recipes around, we just love that blog!

Cindy, i can't believe you actually have vanilla whey protein in your house, i have never even heard of it, but i knew you would try it :)

I love, love, love this blog too! I discovered it about 2 years ago. I can honestly say that I have tried over 100 recipes and there is not one that we did not love. I cannot say enough good things about Melanie and her blog. When I first found her blog I didn't know it was the same Melanie from my home ward in Billings. I think it was about 8 months after I realized it was her. It has been fun to chat with her and get to know her better through her blog.

I have found so many great ideas from your blog too. I think I am going to make one of your jewelry boards but turn it into an organizer for all of my daughters hair clips and flowers. Instead of hooks I am going to use ribbon vertically down the front so she can clip all of her little hair accessories to it. I think it will turn out really cute and will brighten up the bathroom too.
