I’m not sure if personal food blogs have had their day or not, but I still read them obsessively, mainly because I enjoy learning new recipes while meeting a fun personality online. (For the record, fashion blogs? NOW OVER. Sorry, Sea of ââShoes.)
There are a lot of big name food bloggers out there who have received cookbook offers before (The Pioneer Woman, Joy The Baker, Smitten Kitchen), but since I often cook directly from my iPad – typical of the millennium, right? – I think I prefer to cook from the good old blog post. Here are a few blogs that I love and read regularly, blogs where you’ll read a great recipe combined with a great story and feel inspired enough to hit the grocery store right after closing your laptop screen.
Pink parsley: This blog is written by a mother of four in Atlanta, Georgia, but it’s not all about Jello jigglers and how to slip veggies into brownies for kids to eat. Josie writes classic recipes that look delicious, cook perfectly, and are always appropriate for dinner at home or for guests. My favorite is his creamy baked chicken taquitos: so so Well!
Quiche-per-week : This vegan food blog is new to me, but I already love it because it’s hilarious and the recipes are perfect. Go make Bok Choy and Molly’s peanut sauce. No seriously, go ahead!
Katie at the kitchen door: Yum Yum Yum. Beautiful photographs and healthy recipes with a sophisticated twist is what makes me love this blog, which has a rapidly growing audience.
The poor girl eats well : This blog has just celebrated its fifth anniversary! So there are tons of tasty and budget-friendly recipes for you to spend a boring afternoon at work pinning to your âFoodâ board on Pinterest. I also appreciate Kimberly’s passion for cooking, combined with her honesty about everything in her life.
Oh Ladycakes: Always vegan and sometimes gluten-free, Oh Ladycakes is one of my favorite places on the internet for gorgeous, drool-worthy photos of baked goods, combined with eye-catching prose. Blogger Ashlae is currently on a four month European adventure with her boyfriend, so there are some fun travel stories and photos too!
