Cooking on the Side is a great food blog that's incredibly practical. Kathy started the site when she realized just how many untouched recipes she had lingering around her kitchen that were printed on various packages of food.

Now she's got a wide collection of recipes like Caesar Salad with Sugar Snap Peas from a bag of snap peas, Braised Short Ribs from the back of the Wolfgang Puck beef stock carton and Pear Crisp from a brown sugar package. 

What's even better is that she has another blog...yes that's not one, but two food blogs. The second is called Panini Happy and the great thing about it is that she uses a lot of her leftovers from Cooking on the Side to make delicious panini and sandwiches stuffed with all those delicious shredded short ribs, for example. 

Check out Cooking on the Side today, and use your leftovers for Panini Happy tomorrow. Enjoy!
