Around The Internet Kitchen: The Code of It All

For the last two weeks or so, I’ve been spending some spare hours trying to upgrade Macheesmo to a new WordPress Theme. It’s one of those semi-thankless parts of blogging. I want some of the new functionality with the latest WordPress (like the ability to respond to individual comments), but that means I had to change themes.

This might be all gobbledygook to some of you, but if everything went as planned (it didn’t) you would notice no changes visually on Macheesmo, but it would just have some slick new functionality. Turns out though I forgot a few things while testing it and some areas do look a bit different. And not in a good way. So if you see something that looks wonky, sorry. I’m gonna try to get to it this weekend. If you see something that doesn’t work at all(like you click a link and it breaks), please please please email me.

Enough computer speak. Let’s cook some food.

And some links as always!

Not Too Much. Mostly Plants. A friend and reader sent me a new food blog (yes another one) this week. Her goal is pretty straightforward – Stick to Michael Pollan’s rules for a year and document it. Will she succeed? Who knows. She takes pretty solid photos though and is humorous. What more could you want in a food blog that doesn’t rhyme with Blacheesmo? (@ Not Too Much. Mostly Plants)

The Best 11 Foods you Aren’t Eating. A list of some foods that are good for you that I guess the average American doesn’t eat. I think almost all of them have made a Macheesmo appearance before and two of them did just this last week! (@ NY Times)

My First Madeleines. Not my first ones obviously. I’ve never tried them. But Nicole’s first ones. I must say I would have to give her a grade of A+ based on photos only. If I had one of those nifty madeleine trays, I’d be making these suckers. (@ Pinch My Salt)

Have a good weekend everyone and guess what! If you leave a comment on this post, I will totally reply to your comment individually just to show off my new comment functionality that took me two weeks to achieve.

  1. It's not on your poll (again, suggesting something outside the box) but we made the lamb meatball kofte out of the january bon appetite and it was really amazing. I even made homemade flatbread using your recipe to be hardcore. Anyway, even if not for the blog, make it, soooooo good.

  2. I’ll be emailing you the end of this month, after I move into my new home to tap your brain for finally getting me a dot friggin com. It’s so time.
    Make that veggie soup! No more votes needed!

  3. Nick, haven’t looked at the poll — I’m game for any kind of soup — so with a blind-folded comment — SOUP.

    Wanted to pass on a recipe that is well worth trying — aired just last night on our local PBS TV station, and one of our fav restaurants. Delicious: Braised Pork Shanks with Truffle Mac and Cheese.

    BTW, made the Roasted Chickpeas — glad they’re no cal/no fat –LOL — can’t stop myself. Good luck on the web programming.

  4. You are a brave soul, Nick! Have been contemplating a move from blogspot to wordpress (different issues, I know) for a while now — but I keep talking myself out of it based on the amount of thankless work it involves.

    That said — good luck this weekend. Hope everything ends up to be smooth sailing.

  5. I keep getting pop ups that tell me "hot young singles in my area are ready to meet me now" when I click on your blog, is that part of the new functionality? (kidding)

    I had to go with the veggie soup. Normally I'm a meat guy but damn I love sriracha.

  6. um, this entire post is all wonky for me. :( but I understand! I can't read half the poll options, so I can't vote for anything right now :) Thanks for the links!!
