Prickly Pear Harvesting, Sinful Salted Caramel Corn Puffs, Steak Knife The Blog Reviews The Perk Eatery and "Tap is Terrific" at Frances

A round-up of tasty morsels from Valley food blogs.

Linda Hopkins from Les Petite Gourmettes shared a fantastic blog post about harvesting prickly pear and how best to wrangle those sticky suckers. She continues to make Rick Bayless' Crimson Prickly Pear Sauce.

Kira Wills at Girl Meats Fork shared her recipe for this crunchy sweet salty treat: Salted Caramel Corn Puffs. "The entire process is ridiculously easy, albeit a bit sticky. The only difficult part of it is trying to stop eating them." Sounds good to us.

Steak Knife The Blog shared a"wow" experience with The Perk Eatery after being lured there by the restaurant's Twitter habits. Steak Knife ordered Fancy Pants Scramble with spinach and brie and was impressed by the warm inviting space and superior service. Check out the entire review.

Georganne Bryant has brought in some stinkin' cute water bottles to Frances Vintage with the message: "Tap is Terrific." What's really terrific is that a portion of each sale goes toward funding water filtration in needy areas of the world.
