Food Budget for a Family of Four at the Simple Dollar
Interesting to read the firestorm of controversy (see especially the comments) that erupts when a frugality blogger offhandedly mentions that he spends $770 a month on food for his family of two adults and two toddlers.

Summer might be winding down, but there's still plenty of warm evenings left to enjoy one of camping's greatest foods. An encyclopedic post on how to make s'mores, with instructions, videos and variations on the traditional recipe.

Spicy Eggplant and Yogurt Dip from 64 Sq Ft Kitchen
I recently started following this blog because I was fascinated by the delicious North African recipes featured by this Michigan-based Algerian author.

Blueberry Chipotle Barbecue Sauce at Post Punk Kitchen
We are vacationing this week, taking a trip to visit friends in northern Virginia and then visit family in South Carolina. On our way home, we had some barbecued ribs in Asheville, NC that were to DIE FOR, and weirdly, they were made with Blueberry Chipotle sauce. Clearly this post from PPK was some kind of weird cosmic synchronicity. And for those of you who might be in Asheville looking for the best barbecue in town, stop into 12 Bones.
