So after going on my trips meeting other bloggers I have found that many of them do a weekly round up of things they just don’t have time to post about. I’m trying to work as hard as I can to get things done and meet all of your requests and share my own quirky find but time escapes me every day. I find that to have a top blog it takes quite a bit of dedication.
Jell-o Wigglers turn 20:
This summer, Jell-O is celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Jell-O Jigglers, the beloved, jiggly, wiggly gelatin shaped snack recipe that is known for bringing fun and creativity to snack time. Jell-O Jigglers are simple to make at home, and since they are handheld, gives kids an excuse to play with their food! It doesn’t get much more fun than that. And whose children don’t like these. I mean, I like to make Jello in a cookie sheet and then cute out pieces for my kids. Of course that’s all Jigglers are.
Jell-O has lots of other fun snacking recipes too, like “Jellin’-Melon” Snacks, a fun-to-make treat that combines gelatin and fresh fruit in a hollowed out melon. With so many options, the possibilities are endless.

The Next Iron Chef America is going to be on Food Network again
This season, the series will start on Sunday October 4th – with the help of sponsor American Airlines – will take the contestants from Los Angeles to Japan to New York to compete in the food fight of their professional lives. They will be challenged to create dishes that represent a variety of world cultures and cuisines. They will be driven to their breaking points. Whether working with exotic ingredients like jelly fish, creating their own version of international “fast food” or experiencing umami with sponsor Kikkoman, the chefs must demonstrate their speed, artistry, innovation and leadership in each dish. I love this show almost as much the Next Food Network Star.
With the help of the judges – Donatella Arpaia (Restaurateur and Owner of acclaimed New York City restaurants davidburke&donatella and Anthos), Jeffrey Steingarten (Food Critic, Vogue, New York, NY) and Anya Fernald (Sustainable Food Consultant, San Francisco, CA) – the contestants will be narrowed down until two remain to battle it out in Kitchen Stadium and earn the right to be called Iron Chef. The winner will join the ranks of Mario Batali, Cat Cora, Bobby Flay, Masaharu Morimoto and Michael Symon and be launched into instant fame as a member of the Chairman’s team on Iron Chef America.
