these are a few of my favorite blogs

food blog

it goes without saying that i follow a lot of food blogs. i’ve only been at this myself for a little shy of a year, but first obsessing over the recipes and experiences of other bloggers is what inspired me to share my own baking adventures. although i’ve got a whole list of my favorites on the sidebar (on the right, scroll down), i wanted to give a little shout out to a few i’ve been particularly fond of lately:

nick is a workhorse. one of his resolutions for 2009 is to hit 300 posts – a tall order for any blogger. he’s on track to exceed his goal, and here’s the thing – he makes it look easy. nick takes the time to do his research, snap great pictures and make every post practical and thoughtful. he deserves all the success he’s destined to receive.

food loves writing
there are some blogs you breeze through to check for new stuff, and then there are the ones you set aside to savor at the end of the day. start savoring this one today.

the bitten word
clay and zach are addicted to food magazines. luckily, they put their stacks of gourmet, food & wine and bon appetit to good use by letting us in on the very best recipes they discover. honest about their successes and failures, the bitten word is a reliable companion for anyone looking for consistently delicious meals. i’ve probably cooked more from this blog than any other.

last night’s dinner
i’m completely jealous of how well jennifer and her husband eat. it’s inspiring to see picture after picture of local, seasonal food become incredibly creative and decadent meals. i dream of cooking like this one day. and even though there are no recipes, no other blog has made me want to get in the kitchen so much.

wild yeast blog
susan has only been baking bread since 2006, but from the looks of her blog, you would think she’s been at it her whole life. she’s passionate about bread – so passionate she built her own earth oven! you can feel the love in every loaf she bakes, which, by the way, look good enough to eat off the screen. with equal parts humor and humility, susan’s posts strike the perfect balance between helping readers understand the mechanics of baking and showing what it means to truly love to bake.

now it’s your turn. what are your favorite food blogs right now? let me know in the comments!

    You should hit up the omnomicon (omnomicon.com). I read it for the deliciousness, and because Aleta is hi-larious.

  5. Pete! Thanks for the shout-out! We have a blog-crush on your blog, too.

    I love the photo with this post – it reminds me of my masthead photo, which was SO much fun to put together. I particularly like the wooden spoon, especially since you’ve mentioned how much you love them 🙂

    I enjoy reading the Seasonal Ontario Food Blog.

    I like a blog that had a recipe for Spicy Chickpea Snacks, which taste remarkably like popcorn, but I don’t recall the name of the blog. The one I linked to is not the recipe I first found, but it is also an enjoyable blog to read.

  16. strangeattractor says:

    I found the blog where I first found the roasted chickpea snack recipe. It is called Cheap Healthy Good.
