Amused by this animated short by Robert Loebel. How do people adapt to live in a world where it is constantly windy?

Another blog I really love to read is called The Faery Folklorist. The Folklorist travels all over the United Kingdom to the places where stories have been told about sightings of faeries and other tricky figures of folklore. Then she tells the wonderful stories with beautiful pictures of those places. She must be an excellent photographer, because every one of the places she travels to really looks magical.

Just recently she told the story of an eerie loch haunted by a kelpie.

Let me share with you one of my fave cooking blogs, Culinary in the Desert. I follow lots of cooking blogs. This one is my favourite, because I always feel that the recipes are at my level.

If I had describe myself as a cook I would say that I like ambitious home cooking. That is, I'm not interested in spending hours slaving away at it, and I'm not extremely interested in making everything into a visual masterpiece, but I do like a challenge.

Culinary in the Desert Country strikes the perfect balance for me, because there are ambitious new recipes, but most of them are realistic if you're going to make them on a weeknight after coming home from work and I like that. Lots of blogs can be really heavy on the labour intensive gourmet recipes and while I am perfectly willing to give them a try on the weekends, that simply won't be happening once I get home from work.

The highlights, for me:
Holiday Baking Highlights: Every year there is a new list of holiday treats to choose from
Whole Wheat Pizza Dough: It's an awesomely approachable recipe for homemade pizza. I linked the dough itself, but there are a wide variety of toppings and variations to try in other posts.
