Food Blog Reading List

I don't know about you, but I read a lot. I am constantly trying to keep up with my favorite food writers and discover some new ones. I wanted to share a few favorite blogs with you. Some of them are a bit more entertaining or visually stimulating while others are just chock-full of information.

Whole Larder Love - The tagline for Rohan's blog is "Grow, gather, hunt, cook" and that pretty much sums it up. Gorgeous photos of the reality of living off the land and making food for a family. Today, I learned how to kill and cook a pigeon. Maybe it's my upbringing, but this is one of my favorite blogs right now. It echoes everything my father taught me about farm life and our relationship with the land and within the food chain.

Cookin' and Shootin' - Drool, drool, drool, drool. Let me wipe my mouth. I've never wanted to eat my laptop more than right now. These ladies know how to cook and shoot photos of what they're eatin' and temptin' me with.

Tartelette -  This photographer's take on a picturesque meal is always stunning. Suddenly I absolutely NEED a slate chalkboard to place my candy on for photographs. (And a few of these blueberry and key lime tea cakes.)

Serious Eats - Of course I head right to the Sweets section. And who wouldn't love a blog that offers Birthday Cake French Toast?

The Kitchn - Not only great photos but solid tips and recipes for a real person's kitchen. Like this how-to for cooking a perfect steak in the oven. With winter coming around the corner, this is extra helpful. And you know my passion for Nutella, well, there's Biscoff's new (Speculoos) cookie spread that is ah-ma-zing. Recipes for the stuff are turning up everywhere. I'm sure you've had the cookies on a flight somewhere. I like the Kitchn blog for keeping me in the loop of every foodie fad that happens.

Gluten-Free Goddess - I do not have Celiac's disease, but for the most part I'm a meat and vegetable girl with a lot of sweets thrown in. Karina Allrich is the best at gluten-free. Her recipes are do-able and delicious. Check out her Autumn favorites here.

Delicious Days - I find myself drawn to Nicky's writing and photography if only for her back-story. She's living in Germany and has worked in the Internet business. She's transitioned to food writer and photographer and just really enjoys good food. I see myself in her a little bit. Wanting to cook for the people I love and share what I make with you all. Her blog is beautiful and interesting and she's a lot of fun to read. Let me send you to the recipe archive. It's a good place to get started.

Chocolate & Zucchini - Clotilde Dusoulier is a Parisian woman who shares her passion for food with me as if I'm a friend. I have a love/hate relationship with Paris. I think because the times I've visited it's been solo and it really is the most romantic city. But the food...oh the food. There's something about French food which just grabs my soul and coats it in a warm buttery sauce. Her blog does almost the same thing to me. Her book, Clotilde's Edible Adventures in Paris, is like a guidebook to goodness.
