a spring break & cinnamon-apple crisp

I’m taking a little time off from blog posting next week. It’s time for some downtime with the family during our spring break week. I’d love for you to discover some other wonderful blogs while I’m away. These are three sites – of very many on my RSS reader list – that I enjoy reading, and I hope you’ll check them out.

  • Lottie + Doof is a gorgeous food blog written by Chicago-based artist Tim Mazurek. His post on Dorie Greenspan’s jammers cookies is an example of his fabulous work.
  • 5 second rule is written by Cheryl Sternman Rule, a freelance food writer from the Silicon Valley. Her writing style is open, honest, completely refreshing, and often filled with humor. She keeps me smiling.
  • Written by one of my newest friends-in-real-life, Tami, Running With Tweezers is lovely to look at and even more of a pleasure to read. Tami has a great sense of style, and it’s very obviously reflected in her blog. I’m dying to make her most recent Saturday Soup.

Oh, and before I forget, I’ve made a lovely little dessert to keep your tummy happy while I’m gone. Head on over to MomItForward to get my recipe for this Cinnamon-Apple Crisp. You won’t be disappointed.

    Aw, Merry-Jennifer, I too am very flattered. 5 Second Rule is a real labor of love for me, and growing the community to the point where it gets recognized by smart, thoughtful people like yourself makes all the work worthwhile.

    Enjoy your time off!
