New Blogs I Found

Well, they aren't new blogs, just new to me.

Fun Foods On a Budget - Great simple recipes. Doesn't require you to run out and find truffle oil or tarragon vinegar. The site header makes me want to cook a pizza NOW!

Real Mom Kitchen
- Again simple recipes for the entire family.

Mom's Cafe Home Cooking - A fellow Canadian with many recipes and cooking tips to share.


And I have a question...is it an American thing to bake a cake in a 9x13 glass dish? I have never seem this before I started reading US cooking blogs.

We're all about the 9x13....I don't know why though. I do sometimes use an 8x8.

I guess it's even the glass dish thing that seems odd to me. If I bake a cake I use 2 round cake pans...the idea to bake a cake in a glass dish and then ice only the top isn't that common to me.

I've seen people make cakes in 9x13 before in Canada, too... but you certainly see it a lot in the US, too! You may also enjoy http://preparednesspro.wordpress.com for quick and easy pantry meals, too. Enjoy!

Hi Kim :) Thanks so much for visiting my blog! I'm glad you found it useful and thanks for recommending it. I really do appreciate the mention.

To answer your question, I do think baking a cake in a 9x13 glass dish is an American thing. IIRC I got the idea years ago for making a creamsicle cake just such a dish. I think that's about the only cake I ever make like that.

Take care,
