Today I’m sharing my 5 favorite food blogs. These food blogs are like my morning news. I check them on the reg and always get giddy when a new recipe pops up. I’m constantly looking to these blogs for inspiration or just some lovely food porn when a sugar craving strikes at work. Check ’em out and spread the love!
Big Girls Small Kitchen is one of the first food blogs I started following regularly after I heard about it on an episode of Barefoot Contessa. BGSK could not be more accessible for someone like me: the recipes are geared towards twenty-somethings cooking on a budget and in tight kitchens. Favorite recipes: lotus blondies and sweet pea crostini.
Feed Me Phoebe is the blog from one of the original founders of Big Girls Small Kitchen. I love visiting Phoebe’s blog for her gorgeous pictures and healthy, yet super flavorful recipes. Feed Me Phoebe is also a great resource for gluten-free recipes, like GF peanut noodles and even GF mac and cheese!
Deb Perelman really sets the bar (a really high bar!) for food bloggers. I love that the blog design itself is very basic and simple, which allows her pro-quality pictures and extremely detailed recipes to really shine. Smitten Kitchen’s recipes can be a little more time intensive, so I like to go here for inspiration for simpler recipes or when I know I want to go all out. Favorite recipes: caesar salad deviled eggs, ethereally smooth hummus, and stuffed mushrooms.
How Sweet It Is has a such wide range of recipes; from balanced salads and seafood to over-the-top desserts (oh hey, peanut butter fudge pretzel brownies), Jessica really covers it all. Her pictures are also insanely come-hither mouthwatering. Oh, and she also frequently talks about her obsession with ’90s TV shows, boy bands and rainbow sprinkles. We’re basically soul mates. Favorite recipes: brussels sprouts bacon pizza and buffalo chicken french breads.
Reading a blog post on Joy the Baker is like reading a poem. I love her creative and honest writing style that makes me feel connected to her not only because I want to make every single recipe of hers, but also because she writes as if she were talking directly to you. Her pictures are also crazy beautiful. Favorite recipes: chocolate brownie cookies and peanut butter banana smoothie.
