YCMI: Vol. IV

Internet link lists always make me happy if they have something different.  I recognize that they’re the Triskets and Easy Cheese of blog posts, but they’re also a nice way to spread the word about cool or quirky little sites alongside the workhorses we’ve all heard of.  And good morning! It’s day 9 for Persephone, and it’s gonna be awesome.

Today’s list is recipe heavy, I’m terribly peckish and it seems like all the food bloggers in my feed updated with something delicious recently.   There’s a bunch of other weird wonderful clicks ahead, so kick back and enjoy my longest lazyblogger list ever.
