A round-up of tasty morsels from Valley food blogs.
EaterAZ wrote a love letter to Lee Hillson of T. Cook's for his weekly $2 Taco Tuesday promotion. They "can't recommend it enough." With tacos like Kiltlifter tempura bacon tacos with butter lettuce, heirloom tomatoes, and a horseradish sherry aioli and Korean marinaded flank steak tacos with snap peas, Asian pear sauce, and Sriracha mayo - we're so there.
Taryn Jeffries of PhoenixBites.com shared a review of local baker Ashley Stone's business called Something Baked. Stone opened Something Baked in February 2010 and currently offers four flavors of cookies. We want to try the White Chocolate Chip with Apricots. Check out the review and all the flavors over at PhoenixBites.com.
Jeffries at PhoenixBites.com also shared a clever new cooking class at AndyFood that gives you the experience of competing in some of your favorite cooking shows like Chopped. It's called Chopped - hey, why reinvent the wheel - and if you have $65 and you're free on July 22nd from 6:30 - 9:30 p.m., you've got a great date night planned.
The Kitchen Wench at Chamoyada shared her love of smoothies with boba tapioca balls that she gleefully found at Bosa Donuts. The Kitchen Wench had been blogging at Blogspot but has since moved to Wordpress due to technical difficulties. If you've been following all the reviews and recipes on blogger, change your link to Chamoyada on wordpress.com.
