In Search of the Finer Things…and then some

So the weekend is over. Boo. And it’s a workday at that. Double Boo. But, fortunately, I’ve got just the remedy for those Monday blues.

Today, I’d like to put a little plug in for another blog I follow that I think deserves a moment in the spotlight for its overall awesomeness. As some of you may have noticed in the links section on the right-hand side of this page I have several other cool blogs listed, and today I’d like to offer up some praise for Stacy Grow’s “In Search of the Finer Things.” Not just a site for all forms of food lovers and cook aficionados worldwide, Stacy’s blog also brings in a real human element and inspiration to her posts about food and life itself. One part cookbook, one part philosophical, and two parts fun, “In Search of the Finer Things” appeals to pretty much anyone with a soul!

What I really like about this blog is Stacy’s ability to cut to what’s really important. A week doesn’t go by that I don’t read something on her blog that not only makes me dream of delicious food, but actually gives me some genuine insight into how to live a better, more enjoyable life. In other words, real food for thought (please forgive my sheepish use of this pun, but in this case the cliché really holds true). See for yourself what I mean by checking out her regularly updated blog posts. I’m not much of an iron chef in the kitchen myself, but I am constantly intrigued by how this remarkable blog continually keeps my interest by bringing up new ideas and notions I would have otherwise never thought of in the first place. Best of all, every time I read this blog, I can’t help coming across an article that doesn’t make me smile. And that’s something worthwhile.
