The Friday List


Small Measure comes via North Carolina and is a real find. A really lovely blog with loads of ideas and information on everything from preserving to making your own cheese and keeping happy chooks.

The program has just been released for this October's Parkes Rural Women's Gathering. I'll be there doing a workshop on social media. Come if you can, it will be a great weekend.

This  buttermilk bundt cake from Smitten Kitchen looks amazing

I've just discovered a whole bunch of amazing new food bloggers via the Summer 2012 issue of Foodie Crush. Wowsers....impressive stuff

Another beautiful blog about country living

Whole bean vanilla cookies from 101 Cookbooks

And now for a little armchair travel to.... Helsinki’s produce markets

This looks like a great little day trip
