I'm in love with a new Northwest blog - CheriePicked. Is it possible to have a blog crush? It's not just because she just posted a wonderful review of Smokin' Pete's BBQ, and an interview with me, but because her blog is about great food, sustainable food, local food. She seeks out restaurants and people that do the same. And she posts delicious recipes. And she loves bacon. She is also a wonderful writer.
To clarify - my crush is new, but Cherie has been blogging for about three years. So go check out her blog and read the really cool review and interview here (in case you missed the above link). Or just read a delicious Rosemary Shortbread recipe here. I love savory shortbread and I'm planning on making this over the weekend. We have a HUGE rosemary tree that we beat back every year. I can't imagine ever buying rosemary. It grows like a weed in our climate. This shortbread will help keep it trim (but do no such trimming of my middle). Yum!
