The Internet Kitchen: Scorched!

by Nick

Our state is burning!

There are so many forest and wild fires in Colorado right now. It’s really quite scary. Betsy and I are lucky to live in a desert so the chances of their being a raging fire near us is pretty small although there were a few small wildfires over the last few days.

Thousands of people are having to leave their homes and might lose them and it doesn’t look like firefighters are going to them fully under control any time soon even though they are working their butts off.

Turns out that if Mother Nature wants to burn things, then things will be burned.

A little rain wouldn’t hurt either.

The Poll

Let’s pick something to kill the heat!

The Links

Cold Brewed Coffee - Yes. I’m posting a link to my own site. I can do that! I’m reposting it because it’s very important. Most places in the states will be in the 90s or 100s over the next week and there is nothing better than this coffee to get you going and kill the heat. (@ Self-promotion land)

Steamed Pork Buns - I’ve tried to make these before with some success, but this is as great of a walkthrough as I’ve seen for how to rock great steamed buns. (@ Delicious Days)

Sour Cherry and Rosemary Focaccia - Cherries are in season now and I’ve never thought to put them on flat bread like this. Looks awesome! (@ Not Derby Pie)

Mushrooms TapasThese are just too awesome. Tiny little mushrooms stuffed and served on toothpicks. Love it. (@ Arugula Files)
