Why I Love the Internet!

One of the many reasons why I love the internet with it's wealth of information at my fingertips is ... food! Finding recipes in a matter of minutes - it has enriched my cooking in so many ways.
Yesterday, I entered "cucumber, red pepper, radish recipes" and up came this amazing bulgur salad that I made last night. I was lucky in that I had every other ingredient on hand and it was delicious! Perfect for using up leftover produce. And I'm sure you can use whatever fresh veggies you think would sound good with it. Definitely a keeper recipe.
I also had a pint of grape tomatoes that needed to be used, so I tossed them with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and roasted them in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes. I tossed them with some chopped basil (my absolute favorite fresh herb, followed closely by fresh sage) when they were done. Add to that crusty bread and a few good black olives and you have a healthy and delicious  summer dinner.

All thanks to others so generously posting their recipe creations online!

Bon appétit!



  1. I love the internet for cats. But not for cooking cats, you understand. Just want to clarify that.

  2. So true, the internet is a huge source of recipes. Nowadays we can cook anything, from any part of the world, just because it's so easy to share everything!

  3. I have to agree on all of the amazing qualities of the internet. Hard to imagine life without it. I don't think there is anything you can't find here.
