RetroReview: Homecooks (Cooking)
REVIEWED BY: Ann Currie
MY RECOMMENDATION: Yes
AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION PAGE: Home Cooks Online
WEB ADDRESS: http://www.homecooksonline.com
BLOG'S DESCRIPTION: Get answers to the "What's for dinner?" question with these simple but healthy recipes from a group of cooking friends (real people with busy lives) who share what's cooking in their kitchens.
OUR REVIEW: An excellent recipe blog. No fuss, just a quick narrative and description, list of ingredients and straight forward directions.
Previous recipes include Spaghettis Squash Breakfast Loaf, Sausage, Pepper Rigatoni, How to Roast a Thanksgiving Turkey, Tomato Soup, Home made Ice Cream, and Chicken Risotto. If I had one, slight, concern it would be the number of squash recipes posted. Given that there is only one recipe a post, and unfortunately, there is only one maybe two, posts a week you want as much diversity as possible. But everything I saw looked wonderful.
They also reviewed a Pairing knife, a Lodge Logic Wonder Skillet, and Le Creuset cookware.
