Recognizing Home Cooks- the Fun of Food52

There are always new food sites popping up - new food blogs, product sites and food communities- just waiting to be discovered, and it is often hard to stay on top of your old favorites while exploring new and exciting sites. But sometimes the old opens up the new and that happened for me today and so I want to share my new find with you as well..  Today, I saw a post update by one of my favorite bloggers, Susan of Food Blogga, asking for votes for her oatmeal topping in the Quaker Oatmeal Challenge for charity as well as her chocolate cookie recipe on food52. As a blogger who is loyally devoted to my fellow blogger, I voted for Susan's topping (Cinnamon Comfort in Round Three for those of you who want to support Susan's charity as well!),  and then travelled around until I found food52. The brainchild of Amanda and Merrill, both prolific food writers with the New York Times, the site has as its mission celebrating the  best cooks in the world- home cooks, definitely a sentiment I share. Food52 offers a place for cooks to share recipes and tips, and a blog, as well as contests, pulling recipes that will eventually be included in a book. What a great idea!!

With the lofty goal of being the one site on food that you will need, food52 is a fun new site that is worth checking out (and make sure you take a look at my mother-in-law's stuffing recipe which is the cornerstone of the Dowd family Thanksgiving-you won't be sorry).  Before you know it, food52 is bound to be an old favorite!

Mmm-mm Good! Turkey and stuffing (or as we called it in the Midwest, "dressing"). I remember many a Thanksgiving at the Dowd's house when we lived in Virginia instead of cold Rhode Island. My husband still talks about the stuffing. He'd like the recipe for Oyster Stuffing as well. Would you share that with your devoted fans?!

Kathy- You do not remember those times as fondly as we do! I will post the oyster stuffing as well for those who want to try it!
