Friday favorites with Wit & Whistle

I've decided to open up Friday Favorites to other bloggers I admire, not just food bloggers. So today's guest is Amanda from Wit & Whistle. Amanda and I were in the trenches together at the College of Design, so I know first hand how smart, quick, and funny this girl is. She always manages to make design look effortless. I love her DIY tutorialsrecipes, and beautiful photographs on her blog. Make sure to visit her online shop (or these retailers) and purchase a witty Mother's Day card or a handmade jotter.

Amanda, what's your favorite food?
Amanda: Asparagus is easily my favorite food (in spite of the rather unfortunate side effect it causes). It's best drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with salt and pepper, and roasted at 425 F for 9–13 minutes until it's tender but still crispy. I've been known to eat an entire pan of roasted asparagus in one sitting, but if I manage to leave behind any leftovers, they are delicious cold, straight from the refrigerator.

Thanks Amanda! I thought it was fitting to share Amanda's love for asparagus after the Food Matters recipe earlier this week. Also make sure to check out yesterday's chard recipe. Have a great Friday everyone and stay cool in this heat!

I agree - asparagus is awesome because it's so close to perfect already that it needs such minimal preparation. I'm a big fan of veggies that aren't needy. Asparagus is definitely in that category!

I like your Friday posts and how you celebrate other bloggers. Asparagus is indeed awesome and so easy to prepare!

what a good idea to feature other bloggers as well! asparagus is good in so many ways, but i love is roasted as well, or cooked in a creamy risotto!

Thanks so much for featuring me on Friday Favorites, and for the super nice write up! :) This week I tried purple asparagus for the first time and surprisingly I didn't notice a big taste difference between it and green asparagus. Next I want to try the white variety, but it looks so unappetizing, haha.

My best friend loves asparagus too.
