Writings on the Wall

Streaky bacon looses to the sorbet at UK food awards
The Great Taste Awards 2008 were held this week in the UK, and with record level participation and a few record breaking upsets. Explore the award winning foods on their website and discover the new and unique foods available.
Lamb berbere with grilled vegetables, jalapeƱo pesto and smoked tomato orzo
I've been in love with Berbere since I discovered how easy and inexpensive Ethiopian stews were, but Heather over at Gild the (Voodoo) Lily takes it to a whole new level. The lamb and orzo are a perfect combination for entertaining or just a weeknight meal. Ohh, plus, I can just imagine how tasty those leftover lamb sandwiches would be the next day!

Even more amazing foodstuffs and stuff about food after the jump...

Empanada of the Month--Empanadas Margaritas
We love making homemade Empanadas, but we're mere amateurs compared with the genius and art that Rebecca, of From Argentia with Love, puts into her recipes. This month's empanada uses tomato and basil, combining italian flavor with an amazing empanada crust and creates an amazing fusion food!

Time-savers choosing grocery-prepped foods
According to a recent CNN article, more people are purchasing pre-prepared foods at grocery stores lately. Now, don't get me wrong, I am a total sucker for the roasted chicken at our local market, and their deli sandwiches cannot be denied, go ahead I dare you to try! But, we want to know what you think. Grocery-prepped foods, an expensive or efficient short-cut?

Blackberry Fest
I cannot imagine too many blackberries...but then again, I'm an absolute nut over berries in general, so maybe thats just me! Taylor of Mac & Cheese serves up a nice combination of different recipes which will having you seeing black(berries) day and night! Bonus, her photographs are pure pleasure...note to self, must buy blackberries this weekend!
