Some Favorites

In the spirit of Karly's post last week. I though I would share some of my favorite blogs and websites with you. Some of these are on my bloglist, some are not.

A Yankee in a Southern Kitchen has some great, down home recipes. She has fantastic pictures, too. I have gotten many a good recipe from her.

The Pioneer Woman is just plain hilarious. Her cooking page has really super recipes. I also enjoy her ongoing story, Black Heels to Tractor Wheels. It's about how she met and married her husband. Kind of Harlequin-esque. Good reading, she adds a new chapter about once a month!

Crafty stuff is everywhere on One Pretty Thing (thanks Teresa!). I seriously love her Daily DIY roundup. I try no less than 2 projects found on her posts every week. Love it. Seriously.

Vintage Holiday Crafts has a TON of free vintage clip art and cards. I love to print these and make my own tags and cards with these images. Totally rad.

The Lil Bee has all kinds of stuff. I like her writing and pretty ideas.

In my own mind, not so much in reality, I envision hosting all kinds of fun get-togethers. The Party Perfect blog has some really sweet ideas. I wish I had the time and energy to do this kind of stuff.

I found this site through a series of clicks and searches. It's in Japanese but easy to figure out. You upload a picture and it makes it look old and vintage. Sweet. Try it, it's kind of addicting.

Simple Mom totally helps me. Free downloads and tips. I wish I could be this awesome! Plus, I love her pictures. She is currently preparing for the holidays in a stress free way. Lots of great suggestions, I totally need this.

Home Ec 101 is so super fantastic. Being a Home Ec teacher myself, I love this site. It's organized into four basic categories: Clean It, Cook It, Fix It, and Wash It. A must read for moms. And dads. Basically everybody.

Baby Cheapskate posts deals on baby and young child stuff. A must read if you want a deal. For realz people!! You know I LOVE that!

I feel particularly bonded to The Lazy Organizer. She's like me, but way better. WAY WAY better.

And just a warning. I read Cake Wrecks, religiously. Seriously. I am known to take pictures of cakes and send them in. Professionally made cakes. Our WalMarts in town has some doosies!

What are your favorite reads?

Wow! So many links, so little time!!! This is how I get sucked in!

Just know that you have just contributed greatly to the disappearance of my children's mother...into cyberspace.

Must....resist.....must......resist....must....check out Cake Wrecks immediately....I mean, resist....

OMG, Cake Wrecks is hilarious. So sorry about your children being motherless. I so have these sites on my Google Reader...it takes so much less time to check them out when it notifies me when something new comes out. I get sucked in a little less that way. Plus, I read at work. That helps, too. :-)
