In fact, every single morning when I sign onto my computer I open up my personal email, my blog email (contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I love to hear from you!), then open a third tab which I look at my social media sites on--first Facebook, then my Pinterest page and last Twitter. Twitter then stays up for most of the day so I can get periodic updates from all the things I care about (read: other food blogs, NY restaurants and news outlets--yes, I do get a lot of my news from Twitter and no, I'm not embarrassed by it.)
Normally my Pinterest page gets closed after I check out new pins and add a few. Lately, though, I've been checking out food boards of people I've never heard of because the dishes on them look so good. And what a refresher for my meal planning! I've gotten entirely new ideas from websites and blogs I've never heard of.
Here are some of the recipes I am most excited to try. Most of them are very hearty and fall-like; I've clearly gotten over missing the grill and am grabbing my oven with both hands (in oven mitts, of course)!
