    Last night I went on a recipe cutting binge. It all started with a picture of mustard turkey burgers on the cover of Whole Living Magazine. From there I clipped out recipes for whole-grain waffles with sliced strawberries and yogurt… and then sautéed chicken with spinach, garlic, and pine nuts. As my grocery list got a little bit longer, and my mouth watered I got excited about these new recipes… all of which I intend to make in the next week.

    Today as I am still salivating I came across this post from WordPress about 7 Food Blogs to follow this summer. Although you will never find recipes on my site b/c I am not a food blogger, I DO love to eat, and when I am in the mood, cook! Evidently I am in the mood.
    So as we roll in to Memorial Day weekend I am sharing the wealth (and calories) with all my lucky readers. I know many of you love to cook and are savvy in the kitchen, so enjoy perusing these food blogs.
    Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Let me know if you come across any delish recipes. And please share!

    Grillin’ and chillin’ this weekend,
    The Banter Lady

    Well, I just got through eating and looked at this page and decided it was in my best interest to Post and Run or I will be eating again. Everything looked so good and appetizing and no more room for any of it LOL. Not even the Pic of Ice Cream at the top. I deal mainly with dining sites but this is something just for me to try at home and I will be back to see some more of the recipes that you post. Thanks for the temptations.
