I’m leaving for SXSW today and I’m really excited. I’m excited to be in Austin where the food is good the beer is cold and the sun is hot. I’m excited to speak on a panel. I’m excited to learn a lot and meet some new people.
Some of my family that I haven’t seen in many years also lives in Austin so I’m turning the trip into a mini-family reunion also!
I’ll be there until Wednesday so I might be a bit slow to respond to comments and emails over the next few days.
If you happen to be going to SXSW be sure to hit me up so maybe we can meet. If you just want to follow what’s going on, follow me on Twitter as I’m sure I’ll be tweeting a lot since that’s what you do at SXSW.
No poll this week because my hotel room in Austin doesn’t have a kitchen unfortunately.
Some links though!
Swedish Pickled Herring – I’m actually kind of a big pickled herring fan, but they have to be good. I had some in Amsterdam a few years ago that were pretty solid. It never even occurred to me to try to make them. Of course, finding herring would probably be my biggest challenge. I never thought pickled fish could look so good though.

Soda Bread Biscuits – Next week is St. Patty’s Day (Thursday) and these guys look perfect to get in the Irish spirit. Traditional soda bread is always good, but these biscuits are a fun spin on the traditional. (@ Simply Recipes)
Creamed Collard Greens – Sticking with the St. Patty’s Day theme, you’ll need something green and these creamed greens look awesome. You put some cream with sauteed veggies and I’m basically sold no matter what. (@ Food Loves Writing)
Irish Brownie Bombs – If you want to make something sweet for Thursday, these are about as Irish as you can get. They have beer and whiskey in them plus some fun clover leaf shapes! (@ Endless Simmer)
Have a great weekend everyone!
