Bay Area Blogger of the Week # 42

Hungrig in San Francisco - a local blog written in German:

It doesn't take much to understand what the word hungrig means in English. But further than that, my schoolgirl-German doesn't help me much when reading local food blog Hungrig in San Francisco. But since Germany have been doing such a good job of hosting The Football World Cup and those high-maintenace English WAGS, I thought now was the perfect time to feature Ralph's foodblog here at Becks & Posh.

His blog is mainly recipes with delicious-looking photographs and Ralph seems to have been taking part in a BBQ/Grill event, which might inspire you with some ideas for the Fourth of July since a large bulk of his clearly layed-out recipes are in English anyway. Potato salad and Marinated Spatchcock chicken are written in words you'll understand, but when it comes to bacon-wrapped bananas, I am afraid you are on your own with the translation...

On Blogher this week, check out Lemony Snack-it.

At the Grub Report, What Kind of a Cheese Customer are You? I thought I was a Challenger, but apparently blowing kisses marks me as a Friend which is far more of an honour.

I am sending out a shout to Jen's Mom, Olivia, whom I was lucky enough to meet and spend some quality time with last night. Like her daughter, Jen's mom is a very special person and I am lucky to know them both. Thank you Olive-ia!

    mum - you are braver than I

    ralph - I don't know how to say my pleasure in german. I do know how to say fried egg though, so that will have to suffice! Spieglei!
    Mirror Egg! (I probably spelt the wrong)

    my condolences about the world cup, at least that means you havent been a nervous wreck leading to the final. That's the reason i am glad England are out too, so I can really enjoy supporting the french without the accompanying nervous breakdown that goes with.
