The summer has been busyyy, if you haven't already noticed with my relative lack of updates! I've been occupied with things, good things, to the point where I almost forgot about cooking. Almost, I say, because even when I don't have time to cook, I read. I love finding new blogs or becoming more familiar with old ones. Here are two I'm reading today and adding to my blogroll at right. In that list, you'll find blogs I enjoy, versus ones I feel I "should" enjoy (which shall go unnamed).
And to divert you on a tangent, I am plotting a new event to feature on WCP. Currently, I am being held up by a lack of venue, but if all turns out well, there will soon be new faces and new stories on this blog!

My friend Cat has an eye (and an appetite) for food, as attested by her blog Spoonful of Lemons. She always seems to be elbow-deep in some food project that would otherwise intimidate me. Example: Perfect macarons. She also happens to be a full-time student, which makes her food endeavors that much more impressive. But best of all, she's down to earth and loves life.

Nothing about the name of this blog would suggest Korean food, but that's exactly what this is. Hyosun Ro is a Korean-American mom who taught herself how to cook the food of her childhood in Korea and now shares it with the world at Eating and Living. Though I am one further generation removed, I, too, have been wanting to learn how to cook the food I grew up with. So far, I have been too intimidated to start, but with my Korean cousin visiting next week, this is a good a time to start as any. And now I have found my inspiration-real Korean dishes, beauuutiful photography that makes your mouth drool, and a blogger with a day job and a family! I recommend it to anyone curious to know how Koreans actually eat. Clue: It's not endless platters of galbi.
So there you have it! Two new blogs to add to your reader. I hope to feature more in the future, so if you have any recommendations, send them my way!
