Weekend Cooking: 6 Foodie Links to Bookmark

6 fun foodie linksHappy whatever holiday you're celebrating this weekend -- my calendar lists holidays for the United States, the UK, Australia, and France. Plus it's the beginning of Ramadan and Shavuot is right around the corner.

Will anyone be reading blogs today? I have a tiny bit of work to do this morning (finishing up a ten-month-long editing project) and then I'm off all weekend! I plan to do some holiday cooking (deviled eggs, broccoli slaw, and potato salad are my assignments for Memorial Day with friends) and a lot of reading.

I also need to make sure I have everything ready for my quick trip to New York. Can't wait to indulge in all the book things and spend time with my book-loving buddies.

Here are some fun links I found around the Internet. (photo: where I plan to spend most of the weekend)

  • 10 Cooks Share Their Favorite Things to Make in the Instant Pot (from Kitchn). As you know, I'm big fan of my pressure cookers. I'm often asked for ideas and recipes, and this link has some good ones, including my favorite--beans and lentils.
  • These Are the Best Cuts of Steak to Grill (from Huffpost). Here's a cool infographic that could save the day when you're looking for a good cut of beef to cook on the grill. I'm going to add another tip: be wary of steaks from grass-fed cattle; they never seem to have enough fat to make them nice and tender for quick grilling. At least that's my experience from farmers' market beef.
  • The Guide to Petite Sirah Wine (from Wine Folly). My current favorite wine is Petite Sirah, so I saved this page from a reliable wine site. If Petite Sirah isn't to your liking, search around for another grape. You'll find info on tasting notes, history, and serving tips.
  • 10 things to Know About Starting a Food Truck Business (from the Balance). Okay, so I would much rather eat at a food truck than work in a food truck, but just in case you've been dreaming of a new venture, here's some solid (albeit not earth-shaking) advice.
  • Don't Poison Your Dog With Breakfast (from Extra Crispy). If you own a dog, then you know that as soon as you drop food on the floor, Fido is there to clean it up. But did you know that some common foods in your kitchen could actually harm your best friend?
  • 10 Refreshingly Easy Summer Squash Recipes (from Country Living). It's still a little early here in central PA for garden-fresh summer squash, but it's never too early to start thinking about how to use all that bountiful harvest. I've got my eye on a few of these recipes. (Warning: this is a slide show -- ugh!)

Those lists of tips look useful -- I'll be checking them when I have time.

Have a wonderful holiday! I also wondered how much traffic my blog was going to get this weekend, but sometimes when there is a holiday people have more time to browse online. I love all of these links that you put together and I am going to bookmark a few of them. :)

Enjoy your weekend and your time off! I think people have romanticized food trucks but I bet working on one is hard! I do love to eat at them, though.

Have a nice break! I'm doing a little bit of a staycation this weekend and am looking forward to relaxing. Interesting links! I'm especially interested in the squash link. I like squash but there's only so many things I know to do with it!

Thank you for the links, headed to the instapot link now!

I'm entertaining, so not as much time, but that's only today. Sunday and Monday remain to blog hop and relax about the deck and pool.

Hope you enjoy the holiday weekend. I have a bit of work to do too but hope to relax and read and just hang out for much of the weekend. ;-) Thanks for sharing the links. I am already enjoying the bounty of summer squash here and love new ideas.

I've been MIA from WC lately. I hope to join in again next weekend. Have a great Memorial Day!

It's been ages since I've written a food post but a shopping error brought one on and I wanted to share.

The steak post might be worth a look, I've heard that before about grass fed beef. And I like a good food truck although yeah I'm not really dying to work one. :)
