Wow. Just wow. (That’s us! On Saveur’s website!)
Let me get a little mushy. Just a little. Just for a minute.
It’s always so nice when someone tells me that they like The Hungry Mouse. This site has been a labor of love for The Angry Chef and I for the last year or so. Food and cooking are a huge part of our everyday lives, and it’s an honor to be able to share our kitchen antics with you guys.
We’re especially flattered when folks try our recipes and really like them. The proof is, after all, in the pudding.
But we’re always, without fail, totally floored whenever we get a nice piece of press. So, you’ll understand that I was totally beside myself when we found ourselves on Saveur magazine’s Best of the Web list today.
Yep, Saveur. Hands down, my favorite food magazine of all time. You can’t see me right now, but I’m grinning from ear to ear.
And…they listed three (three!!!) of our recipes! Here’s a quick recap of the ones they selected.
Saveur Magazine, Best of the Web: The Hungry Mouse
Ah, pork. These Fig and Ginger Glazed Pork Ribs are so good. This is one of those dishes that looks a little unappetizing when it goes into the oven (after all, fig preserves are kind of brown and lumpy)—and is utterly drool-inducing when it comes out.
The second recipe is for…more pork! These Pork Spare Ribs with Cocoa Spice Rub are succulent as can be, and borrow heavily from Mexican mole—blending fragrant chilis, garlic, and onion with rich chocolate. It’s unexpected and totally delicious.
They also included one of my favorite go-to salads of all time. This Sesame Garlic Snap Pea Salad is packed with flavor and crunch—and is ridiculously easy to whip together.
More to come soon! (Announcements and excitement, oh my!)
Thanks again! We’re so very honored. We’re really looking forward to the coming year.
We’re particularly excited to officially (if a little belatedly) celebrate our one-year anniversary next month. We have a handful of over-the-top giveaways planned�along with one very special announcement.
