It’s been a while since I cruised all of my favorite food sites on the Internet, namely because my Google Reader crapped out on me for a couple of months, displaying nothing but a blank page.

Of course, by then, I had about 500 Serious Eats and Slashfood entries backed up to read. How in the world those people post more than 30 entries in 24 hours’ time is beyond me.
