The Best of CEiMB - April 9, 2009

This is our first installment of the Best of CEiMB. It was hard to chose from all the great pictures this week. The salmon proved to be very photogenic.

Salmon with Sweet & Spicy Rub


Best photo of the week goes to Aggie of Aggie's Kitchen:

And second runner up goes to Mary Ann of Meet me in the Kitchen:

Both of these wonderful women feature delicious and healthy recipes on their blogs every week, you should read them regularly if you are not already!


Best post of the week goes to Cathy of The Tortefeasor who consistently makes me laugh out loud every week. This week she combined her posts for Barefoot Bloggers and CEiMB. Even though the below excerpt was not about the CEiMB recipe, it gave me a good laugh:

Of course, it's the dressing that makes this a "Chinese chicken salad." Ina's recipes often specify to use not just olive oil, vinegar, etc., but "good" olive oil or "good" vinegar. I am never 100% sure what she means by "good," but I have a feeling that she means "not the stuff they sell you in Publix." In this recipe, the dressing calls for "good apple cider vinegar." I did have apple cider vinegar in my pantry, but I'm afraid Ina would probably think of my vinegar as: Heinz: The Apple Cider Vinegar of the Unwashed Masses. I am pretty sure that Ina would not consider this to be "good" apple cider vinegar. If you read the label closely, however, it says that it is "ideal for food." I figured I could build on that.

Congrats to this week's champs!
