Blog(s) of the week - two for your delight and delectation :)

Recently I was talking with one of my girls about fish recipes which led me to look at cooking blogs. (That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.) I found this GORGEOUS one and got totally side tracked :) I'm also biased since it comes from Britain. Marie Alice Joan Rayner is a Canadian living in England who has gotten totally turned on to the cooking culture there. Her blog is a delight to look at and her enthusiasm is infectious. I love her "What's in Season" side bar feature. MAJ if you want a "clean up behind you person" I'll be happy to oblige :0

So spring will be here soon and those of you with gardens know what that means :) Planting time (in our case small). If you live state side,  what better way to create some of the dishes at The English Kitchen than to plant, grow and harvest your ingredients. (I heard some of you impatient ones out there saying ...... cann't wait that long). Chelsea has an interesting concept called Survival Seeds at their site I love the picture of the little red house/barn on their main page. Cute.

The very eagle eyed amongst you will notice a common link between the two sites. Hint - The Trumpet Shall Sound.

On a totally different subject. There is a major event going on at A Whimsical Bohemian. Click on the link on my side bar and go check out the world wide giveaway participants on her side bar. It's filling up VERY fast. Enjoy "The Magic Carpet Ride" as you visit many wonderful blogs and maybe make new friends from around the world :) (Hop on over to my other blog
to find out what I have decided to do.)

CArol, you can come and clean up behind me anytime. I am sure Todd would enthusiastically enjoy the help!!! Thanks so much for your very kind words. You really made my day. I do love to cook. I also love to craft and am liking your little windmill pillow down below. If you want to be in on my One World One Heart Giveaway, I am giving one of my handmade dolls away on:

I am soooooooo looking forward to local berries again. This photograph is lushious, what a tease! ;)

Yep, when I saw the photo (courtesy of Marie) it was instant love :) Now, if I tried to balance a spoon with jam on it on top of a jar I would be in a right royal mess !!!!!!
