An inspiration hit me the other day. I have been tooling around the internet more these days, reading food blogs and admiring so many great recipes, and I realized that it would be really cool to share some of these with all the new friends that I have made through my blog so far. So I came up with the idea for Dizzy Busy Digest, which I will try to publish on a weekly basis. It will contain links to some of the recipes or other items that I find intriguing for whatever reason, as well as any other tidbits that I didn’t manage to squeeze into my recipe posts. It will be a little bit of a different focus for me, but I think it will be a lot of fun!
Before I get into this week’s links, I wanted to talk a little bit about Google Reader. For those of you who don’t know, Google Reader is an awesome application that consolidates all your RSS feeds into one interface and makes it really easy to keep up with different blogs, newsfeeds, etc. I really love it, but Google recently announced that it will be going away effective July 1, 2013. So, you may be looking to find a replacement reader, or maybe you are thinking about using a reader for the first time.
Bloglovin‘ is a great RSS reader, and you can easily import your current Google Reader subscriptions as well. If you don’t already subscribe to my blog, just click the button below to go to Bloglovin’ to set up your account and subscribe!
The only negative with this reader for me is that there is no app available for my Kindle Fire. Arg! So for now I am using GReader on my Kindle. I am not sure if I will have difficulty keep Bloglovin’ and GReader in sync, but if that is the case then I might just have to ditch one and use the other exclusively. But, we will see!
Another option if you prefer is to sign up to receive my posts in your email inbox. Nothing could be easier than that! Just go to the right sidebar and scroll until you see the the section titled ‘Get email updates!’. Then fill in your email address and click ‘Subscribe’. Voila, you are signed up! And no worries, because I promise I will never use your email address for anything other than Dizzy Busy and Hungry updates.
OK, soooooo, let’s get to some of the cool recipes I have found recently!
Need a snack? This recipe for Cilantro Lime Popcorn from Bake Your Day is genius! Citrus-y lime and tangy cilantro combined with the crunchy saltiness of popcorn…I am all over that!
Time for dessert! Ricotta in a dessert is a new concept for me, but this Sweet Ricotta Pie from Jersey Girl Cooks looks so good I just have to try it!
My boys LOVE mozzarella sticks, but fried cheese is SO not good for you. This recipe for Baked Mozzarella Sticks from Baking and Boys subtracts the frying from the equation and keeps all the melted cheesy goodness! The kids will not leave me alone until I make these!
Have a great weekend!
