New Food Ratings: Yums Up (Randyjw; May 19, 2016)
Hello! Thank you for all your kind likes, follows and nice comments. I really appreciate that you’ve taken your time to read my thoughts and respond with yours. That’s really kind.
In response to thesmilingpilgrims’ one-word compliment, “Yum”, on Easy Cheesy Rice, I replied something like (maybe not verbatim), “My thoughts plus yours make two Yum’s Up”! After a short while, it occurred to me that that would be a cute food rating system we could use across the blogosphere, no? Anything up to Ten Yums, allowing for fractions, versions and decimals will be permissible.
If I forget to do it and it becomes too burdensome, then I’ll drop the idea like a hot potato (ha-ha). But, meanwhile, I offer it to food bloggers and food lovers out there who might have fun with the idea.
I suddenly went on a food blog tangent the other day and began seeing what was out there, since I’d recommended someone to do the same. I liked what I saw. I decided I’d tell you what caught my fancy in the nice food blogs I’ve seen on that journey. I’m not getting formal with links and total accuracy here, but you can check for yourself and see what you like. P.S. These are non-tested; you’re the judge.

Anthony Bourdain – Oh, yeah… HarperCollins Publishers’ books include cookbook authors, and the Ecco imprint was the line reserved for Anthony Bourdain and his choice selections of break-out, budding talents. I found this info under the HarperCollins website and learned they have a New Zealand/Australia/World branch, which I clicked on. I found their site rather friendly toward the solicitation of new materials. If you’d like to make a submission of your work for consideration, please do so on a Wednesday only, and here is the link: http://www.wednesdaypost.com.au/. I also read some Anthony Bourdain quotes, one of which really had me laughing alot, at: https://www.goodreads.com/author/quotes/1124.Anthony_Bourdain
I’m sure I probably inadvertently left off people I meant to include — that’s one problem with lists. If I remember for the future, I’ll try to add-in more as I go along. Meanwhile, thanks for reading. May your life and health, as well as your food, be hearty and happy! – Randy
