Favorite Food Blogs


I’m constantly surrounded by food. It’s my thing. And so when I’m not in the kitchen making food, I’m on the internet looking at food, food recipes and food pics.  Over the last few years I’ve honed in on my favorite sites for inspiration for my weekly kitchkat meals, catering events and family meals.  Here are my top three favorite food blogs and I’ll give you my reasons why:


  1. Smitten Kitchen– She takes classic recipes from all over the culinary world, from Julia Child to the Home Sick Texan and adds her own subtle twist to the staple recipes.  Highly recommended recipes: Creamed Spinach, Baked Orzo with Eggplant and Mozzarella and Blue Cheese Salad Dressing
  2. Joy the Baker–  While she is primarily a baker, she dabbles in alcoholic drinks, savory breakfasts and dinners. And all of her recipes are wonderful. I’ve had yet to make a bad dish. I even bought her first cookbook.  Highly recommended recipes: Salted Caramel Cheesecake Pie, Cold Avocado Soup with Bacon and Corn, Peanut Butter Fudge Treats
  3. Food Network: Ina Garten – OK so this isn’t a blog, per say, BUT it’s an aggregrate of all things made by Ina Garten, aka, the Barefoot Contessa.  She’s my favorite food network star and her recipes are almost 95% guaranteed to be great. Her food is often sophisticated but easy to make.  Highly recommended recipes: Pesto Pasta with Peas, Roasted Tomato Basil Soup, Rosemary Roasted Cashews
