Lori Randall Stradtman had a great idea. What if the food blogging community could come together to do something for the Hurricane Sandy victims in New York, New Jersey and other states? The answer was to put together and amazing cookbook, with recipes from many different people. And here at The PinterTest Kitchen, we were excited to get involved.
Tasty with a Side of Tacky is now available on Amazon for Kindle. The cost is only $4.99 and every cent of the proceeds goes to the American Red Cross to help Sandy victims.
About the book:
A collection of tasty recipes, lighthearted stories of the South, and just a little tacky, written to help victims of Superstorm Sandy.
This cookbook is a compilation of over 60 recipes by 37 published authors, food bloggers, and business people from all over the world who want to show their love and support by sharing their tasty recipes, with a side of Southern tacky, in honor of “Cousin MeeMaw.” You will find authentic “Possum Stew,” along with down home Southern Fried Chicken, and some of the best divinity you will ever have the pleasure to sample.
For you, the buyer of this outrageous cookbook, THANK YOU. I hope you get a laugh or two and some really tasty recipes, nestled among the… well, the more rustic ones and outrageous stories.
We have two recipes included in this cookbook – our Jack Daniels Sugared Pecans and our Red Velvet Cookies. We hope that you’ll take a minute to purchase this cookbook. It’s for a great cause, and with such delicious recipes and hilarious stories, this is a cookbook you don’t want to miss! Buy it on Amazon now!
The PinterTest Kitchen is going to Israel! Woo!
A few months ago, I was invited by Israel’s Ministry of Trade to visit the country and check out their booming tech industry. I’ve never even been out of the country before, and as this post is published, I’m at the airport getting ready to board my flight!
I’ll be writing about my experiences more on the New Media Expo, since I’ll primarily be seeing the country through technology-tinted glasses…but I figure, a girl’s gotta eat too, right?
And believe me, I’m looking forward to tasting all Israel has to offer and sharing it here for you guys to see! I need your help though.
If you know me, you know how much I love Julia Child. She was a strong women when you had to be awfully brave to be a strong woman. She was fearless in the kitchen and in life. She was imperfect and loved every bit of her imperfect self.
Julia Child died in 2004, but if she were still alive, she would have turned 100 today.
Next to my own grandmother, who is quite the wiz in the kitchen, Julia is one of my biggest culinary inspirations. So happy birthday, Julia!
I’ll leave you with some of my favorite Julia Child quotes:
“Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.”
I’ve been addicted to Pinterest since the moment I signed up. It wasn’t long before my sister Jessica was hooked as well, and our mother, Sharon is a brand new convert. Spending so much time on Pinterest, it didn’t take me long to realize something: lots of people repin recipes and other projects that they never actually test out.
The problem? A lot of pins get super popular, but unjustifiably so. Just because a recipe sounds or looks good doesn’t mean it is good
That’s why we decided to start The PinterTest Kitchen – to actually try the popular recipes (and other projects) that people are so readily pinning. And we’re going to post our results here, good or bad. We’ll also review cool products for your kitchen, post Pinterest tips, and even share some of our own Boyer family recipes!
If you want even more from us Boyer ladies, take a moment to sign up for The PinterTest Kitchen Club on our sidebar, which allows you to receive exclusive free messages from all of us straight to your inbox every week.
Hope to see you around here often!
