Tastespotting.com: a Visual Potluck

7 Sep

I came across a site tastespotting.com on stumbleupon.com.  This site is a beautiful collection of food images that link to other blogs, recipes, resturant sites etc.

Here is the site’s explanation of themselves:

Founded in January 2007 on the idea that we eat first with our eyes, TasteSpotting is our obsessive, compulsive collection of eye-catching images that link to something deliciously interesting on the other side. Think of TasteSpotting as a highly visual potluck of recipes, references, experiences, stories, articles, products, and anything else that inspires exquisite taste.

We don’t use the term “potluck” for the hell of it. Everyone brings something to the party here: the user community submits images/links from around the web and the editorial team reviews the submissions. What finally gets served up on the site is a beautifully refined set of the community’s contributions.

If nothing else is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL site that makes me hungry 🙂 You can also submit your own food information for posting on the site.  Next time I come across something delicious I may have to post to see if my entry makes it in.  All in all cool site that I could spend hours on…probably not good for my weight loss self control but photos can make me gain weight…can they?

Basil Tomato Pizza!

16 May

So tonight I made the best tomato basil pizza.  I thought I would share the recipe.  I didn’t get a photo of it because it was eaten before I could get my camera out 🙂 but it was amazing.  Let me know how it goes if you decide to make it.

1 can of refrigerated pizza crust
2 medium roma tomatoes
1 1/2 cup of mozzerella cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
3/4 cup tomato sauce
10 basil leaves
1 tbsp of minced garlic
garlic powder

Roll dough out on a sheet pan as thin as it will go.  Brush on olive oil if you wish and sprinkle salt, pepper and garlic powder.  Pre Bake dough as directed on teh package.  Once prebaked spoon on tomato sauce of your choice and then place minced garlic then mozzarella cheese.  Sprinkle the basil on top of the cheese and then sprinkle the parmesan cheese on top.  Bake as directed on the package and enjoy.

If you use reduced fat dough, and cheese this pizza will be 3 Weight Watchers points per slice if you cut the pizza into 10 peices.
