Food Blogs in the Press and Cute Dog Photos

The Dogs

There’s a great article in today’s Fresno Bee food section about using online resources to get information about the local food scene. Joan Obra’s article was particularly interesting to me since it mentions Pinch My Salt and includes a couple of my recipes, but it’s also filled with other great information 😉

Read the article here.

And now about the dogs. I’ve been house sitting/animal sitting for my cousin the last couple of days and couldn’t resist taking some photos. They have three dogs: Eddie the Basset Hound, Bruce the Dachshund, and Sara the Mutt. I’m also living with three cats but MacGyver, Mia, and Montecore won’t stay still long enough for me to snap any photos. They are the most energetic cats I’ve ever been around!

More about food tomorrow!

    I love that “naughty ice cream sandwich” recipe. It’s so great that you’re getting so much good press. As for the dogs though, eek! I’m just going to run the other way.

    Ruby: Thanks! I finally picked up a copy of the Bee and saw the article in print form. It looks really great!

    Amy: I’ll have to talk to Justin about another puppy…I’m thinking that the answer is probably NO 🙂 Corinne and Jason are back tonight so we should go Friday if I don’t end up going to the cabin or something

    Erin: Thanks for stopping by! I’m gonna head over to your blog now and see if you ended up baking some bread or not!

    Nicole, very cool article. It’s great they are featuring you.

    I cannot figure out why newspapers don’t learn to make hyperlinks in their online versions when there’s a link in the print article. I see this quite frequently. Newspapers are so out of date on that.

    You are a Kerman native, huh? Interesting.

    Way to go on the press coverage.

    (As I type this, we are talking about stuff across the room…silly)

    Amy: Ok, sounds good. I’ll call you tonight and see what your plans are. And Jason just asked me if you and I had been planning a party at their house…what’s that all about? 🙂

    Kalyn: Thanks! And you’re right, I don’t know why they don’t use hyperlinks.

    Curt: Have you seen photos of my Boston Terrier? I don’t know why he’s never starred in one of my posts.

    Jason: Yeah, not quite sure how that ended up in the article. Correction: I am a MADERA native. 🙂
