Blog Day 2006: Eat it up

As today is officially Blog Day, I thought I’d join in by venturing into the crevices of the blogosphere to see what other foodie types around the world are up to.
The results are revealing in their difference but my selections have one thing in common – they are all written by women.
Why do so many women choose to blog about food? It’s got to be something to do with men!
Anyway here’s my selections and I’ve included the “rules” for Blog Day at the end of this post just in case you want to join in the fun.
Food Pix
Just as described, this blog is full of mouthwatering pictures of food all cooked up by 26-year-old proud army wife Donna.
Fresh Approach cooking
Described as recipes and whatnot from a not-so-typical L.A. girl this blog is a treat for links – spaghetti web.
Restaurant girl
This woman in New York has a huge appetite for eating out and says she gets more excited about a good steak than a good man. She’s in love with food. A girl after my own heart.
Neurotic Iraqi Wife
This Middle East desparate housewife is another army wife who just can’t wait to get cooking with the chocolate pancakes. As she says “heavenly chocolate”.
Isle of Man Candy
This young lady a bit closer to home seems to be campaigning for cheaper fish and chips. Good call girl but is £4.50 really that pricey?

Here’s what to do for Blog Day 2006:

* Find 5 new Blogs that you find interesting;
* Notify the 5 bloggers that you are recommending them on BlogDay 2006;
* Write a short description of the Blogs and place a link to the recommended Blogs;
* Post the BlogDay post (on August 31st); and
*Add the BlogDay tag using this link: and a link to the BlogDay web site at

  1. Wow, that was a great mention, thank you so much! I am flattered, and blushing.
    I dont get to Manchester often (okay, Ive been to the airport, once…) but next time I am there, I will check out some of your recomendations!
    Thanks again! I love your site!


  2. Robin, what is it with peanut better? Why does every strange sandwich recipe have to include peanut better? If it’s not with “jelly” (whatever that is) it’s with bananas. It has to be said though that there’s nothing strange about peanut butter and tomato. Of course I’ve tried it – who hasn’t? Surely you’ve somthing stranger 🙂
