Stumbleupon - Cooking Blogs

What do you think about Stumbleupon cooking blog sites
with step by step photos of everything - from ingredients to
finished product ?

IMHO - it's too much emphasis on photos and it takes too long
to get to the 'meat' of the recipe and technique.

I never saw that site before, but anything with pictures is better than a bunch of text. IMHO

I've never seen it before either, but it could be helpful if someone is making something for the first time.

Hi folks

Stumbleupon is a toolbar which you can add to your brwser.
They have a database of interesting websites organized by different topics (food/cooking geology music etc etc)
When you press the stumbleupon key they take you to one of those sites.

I just added stumbleupon to my toolbar - I think it is kinda cool.
Not sure how I feel about the cooking/recipes because I'm new to it. I like having it on the toolbar though - so easy.
Thanks Mike!
