Top 5: Food Blogs

I love food, I kind of like cooking (if I’m in the mood). These blogs have really helped me to become more creative and enjoy my attempts to satisfy my taste buds (and be healthy).

5. Better With Butter

I discovered this blog while searching for a way to make a healthier (and less salty) cracker. Love the photography here too!

4. Foodess

Again, love the photography here. The uniqueness and healthiness is what drew me to this blog.

3. Pass the Sushi!

Not as healthy, I suppose, but so *$*@# delicious. Love the ‘fake luna bar’ recipe! Those lil guys are how I survived 3 summers of camping and hiking.

2. The Faux Martha

This girl has great tips and all created with top-notch photography. Faux Martha, better than the real Martha?

Savory Saturday: Tongan Cuisine

Wow – there are some interesting Tongan recipes online. A pattern I saw emerging was the use of coconuts in absolutely everything, and a ton of raw fish recipes.

I don’t think I would attempt any raw food dishes, I’ll save it for the experts.

This recipe really sounded quite interesting and unique. So let’s try this experiment:

Cassava Balls


Ingredients:

2 cups grated cassava
1 medium-sized onion, chopped
1 tsp freshly, chopped herbs
1 egg
1/4 cup cooking oil
Cooking Instructions:
Mix together the grated cassava, onion and herbs. Lightly beat the egg. Add to the cassava mixture and mix well to form a smooth mixture. Form mixture into small balls.Lightly fry the cassava balls in cooking oil until golden brown. A finely chopped fresh chilli or clove of garlic can be used instead of the herbs.
