Mmm… Food blogs. I’m obsessed!

Share & Comment

I feel like I've come across a whole new world! A peak at one food blog recently led to printing out a few recipes, then to checking out the blogs on her blogroll. Wow. Talk about salivating at the computer. Who needs cookbooks when you have food blogs?! I say that half joking, because I'll never give up books, even cookbooks, but still there's nothing like reading someone's personal experience and seeing all the lush food photos.

Here are some recipes that I want to try soon (and the blogs where I found them):

Oatmeal & raspberry pancakes and applesauce snack cake at a whisk and a spoon

Crunchy oven baked fries with herbes de provence by Joy the Baker. Oh, and her fried breakfast polenta with blackberry meyer lemon jam! Oh my goodness. I'm not usually a big polenta fan, but I definitely have to try this.

The Pioneer Woman is a riot! I want to try her ginger steak salad (and everything else on her blog). Take a look at her amazing recipe file, complete with pics!

Lemony lemon cake at Smells Like Home (yes, I have a major sweet tooth and I love citrus)

Tapenade, red pepper, and goat cheese crostini at Confections of a Foodie Bride

Lasagna Rolls at Pennies on a Platter

Salt-kissed buttermilk cake (with raspberries) at 101 Cookbooks

Home fries (two kinds) and cardamom honey chicken at Simply Recipes

Mmm… I'm hungry now. Do you have any favorite food blogs? Help feed my new obsession!

    Selfishly I’d say my own, http://www.Smorgasbite.com though it’s more eclectic than just recipes… lots of food products, produce, food musings.
    I also love noteatingoutinny.com and coconut and lime.
    Funny how I started reading all food blogs, then discovered art/design blogs. The reverse of you!

    De-lurking to 2nd the earlier vote for Orangette! Her recipes are really different and quite wonderful. I haven’t cooked much from her blog, but everything I have has become a staple. Her Apple Cake Tart Thingy has gotten raves from everyone I’ve served it to and I’ve made the unlikely sounding Butternut Squash Chickpea Tahini salad so many times since it first showed up in the early fall that I think I could do it in my sleep. It’s amazing.

    I would have said Pennies on a Platter because that’s my friend’s blog, but you’ve already discovered that one! :) You two are both listed as links on my (hasn’t-been-updated-in-forever) blog–what a small world.

    I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

    Your readers I have much in common: have spent many happy evenings with Bakerella, Smitten Kitchen, and Orangette. One I’ve discovered recently is My First Kitchen: http://www.myfirstkitchen.net She’s got a great writing style.
    The food site I have to hit whenever I need to really belly laugh and ogle food at the same time is Cake Wrecks. Hi-larious. (and she just won a *bunch* of Bloggie awards!)
