Do You Like Cute Food?: Feature Fridays

cutestfood.com

If you’ve never explored Pintrest, I highly recommend it for your next surf session or coffee break (do people even take coffee breaks anymore?).  It is where I discovered an entire website dedicated to cute food. Well, unabashedly they claim it is the cutest food.  I have to agree, there are pages and pages of food creativity gone crazy with cuteness like these panda rice balls.  If you like your food cute, or just want to admire the efforts of others, check it out … I’ll take my browse break with coffee, thank you.  Enjoy!

Foods That Look Like Body Parts They’re Good For [via: Woman’s Day]: Feature Fridays

Foods That Look Like Body Parts They’re Good For was published last year by Woman’s Day, but somehow I missed it. If we were still home schooling, this would be a great topic for health or science class—Ah, those were the days. Pretty cool imagery and one more way to think about the foods we eat. Enjoy!

Greek Nachos [via Not Without Salt]: Feature Fridays

With a temp forecast of  94° today, my Friday web-cruising was jaded a bit with my desire to find something cool and refreshing.  From the moment I laid eyes on these Greek Nachos at Not Without Salt they just seemed to say “summer” to me.  They look fresh, light, and ready to invite cool breezes on the patio—just right for hot summer nights. Enjoy!

Cupcakes Baked Inside Eggs: Feature Fridays

Sometimes, life just takes over and routine is pushed aside for the unforeseen. That was the story of the today, so Feature Friday is getting a late start, but at last it’s ready to roll.  This post from Cupcake Project made me do a double take, unsure if my eyes were playing tricks on me … yes, it is a cupcake baked inside an egg!  Just when you think you’ve seen it all, right?!  Take a minute to check out this apparent food Houdini.  Enjoy!

Bacon Cups (via not martha): Feature Fridays

Bacon Cups @ not martha

Like chocolate, bacon is always worthy of Feature Fridays, especially when this kind of creativity is involved.  As soon as I saw someone was making bacon cups, I imagined whole line of bacon dinnerware—edible cups, bowls, plates is the ultimate way to go green, right. This is not just eating everything on your plate; this is eating your plate!  Fun, creative, and surly delicious, there is some pretty cool stuff going on at not martha, so you’ll want to browse a little when you check out these Bacon CupsEnjoy!
