I don't usually recommend commercial sites, particularly those that have some products that compete with ours. But I'm making an exception for this one. It's GREAT! and has really fine products too, I have some of them and know of and approve of others. With so much junk on the market it's a joy to see quality merchandise on a site. There's recipes too. See the Canning Pantry.
Once in a while I find a website that knocks my socks off. I'm still looking for one of mine after seeing this recipe, something I never would have thought of putting together in my wildest fantasies, and I come up with some pretty innovative food at times. The website is Marions Kochbuch (also available in its original German at http://www.marions-kochbuch.de). The recipe that astounded me, featured on the front page, is Pork with Cream Cheese Filling. Incidentally, the photography alone on this site is worth browsing, and the presentation superb (but you may head immediately for the refrigerator - yum!). Take a look, you'll see what I mean.

Have you ever heard the comment, "If women ruled the world....?" Women in many areas, and especially in much of the Arab world, have little influence in current events, even though they are frequently the majority of society. To understand other cultures, we need to start with the women, and where better than the food. Here's a sample from son Mark (Zog to his friends): Cooking with BJ.
One of several favorite cuisines is that of Santo Domingo. So I was delighted to have this new website called to my attention: Aunt Clara's Dominican Cooking. Some of the ingredients and preparations may seem odd at first to non-Hispanics, but they showcase examples of the best cooking and healthiest diets in the Caribbean! An added bonus for language buffs is the sprinkling of Spanish throughout the English language site. ˇAproveche!
