Okay things are going to go a little differently in this piece. As much as I am obsessed with clothes and fashion, I am probably just as much, maybe more, obsessed with food and cooking. Below I have compiled a list of six of the top food blogs I follow religiously and I hope you love them as much as I do… Now try not to drool when looking at these sites and the pictures posted.. I dare you
Not Without Salt
Not Without Salt is pastry proprietor Ashley Rodriguez’s love child. Formerly working for a top name pastry chef at Wolfgang Puck’s famous L.A. restaurantSpago, she fell in love with all things food. Since moving to Washington and settling down with her husband and three kids, she invites her followers into her home with “a collection of well-seasoned recipes,” inspiring stories and stunning photography. Debuting on the blogosphere in 2009, NWS got its name after Rodriguez came across a quote from James Beard stating, “Where would we be without salt?” A lover of salt and cringing at the thought of life without it, Rodriguez had to name her blog after it. You’ll find recipes from how to make bacon caramel and Greek nachos to heartfelt stories about struggling with postpartum depression after having her third child. Not Without Salt is a blog that is as delicious in its content as it is in the recipes that are posted weekly.
Gastrogirl is your one stop shop for shared recipes and food photography from all around the blog world. “Saving the world one bite at a time,” Gastogirl posts recipes from all cuisines, sweet or savory. Its as easy as it looks, if one of the pictures posted on her tumblr site catches your eye, just click and it takes you to its host site where you can find the recipe to make it yourself. Recipes posted spawn all food groups such as taco pizza, white cheddar grilled cheese with avocado and tomato and ice cream sandwiches with candied bacon. I promise, the pictures on Gastrogirl’s tumblr are as fun to look at as actually making the recipes themselves.
Spoon Fork Bacon
Okay, in all fairness to the other blogs featured in this post, this one has to be my overall favorite and let me tell you why.. Upon going to the “About” section of Spoon Fork Bacon, you would learn that two women, Jenny and Teri, run the blog. They also <3 hotdogs, have an unhealthy obsession over Anthropologie, appreciate genuine people and like food fests, besides food in general that is. With contents such as every day recipes, happy hour, party food and dine and dash recipes inspired by some of their favorite plates at restaurants, this blog is gaining popularity in the food blog world at an alarming rate. Their recipes aren’t just all about bacon though, they post recipes from snickers milkshakes that come with a warning that they will exponentially increase the percentage of boys brought to your yard to Blue Moon cupcakes (yes, as in the beer.) Even if you don’t like cooking just looking at the pictures they post daily will make the visit worth while, I guarantee it.
