I hope you're not hungry when you read this! If you are anything like me, you're always hungry, which means you probably have a love/hate relationship with the Internet and its many food blogs. Even though I'm less than savvy in the kitchen, I can't seem to peel myself away from this guilty pleasure. Between the drool-worthy photos and the descriptive imagery, I vicariously taste the food as I peruse through posts. Lately, I've been taking the next step and attempting some of the recipes - gasp!
Unlike other blogs, food blogs give you more than just food for thought, so they are the star of our Friday Five this week. Fellow foodies rejoice, here are five of my favorite food blogs. You are welcome!
This blog is beautiful. The photography is mouthwatering and the organization of the website makes it easy to find anything you are looking for. My favorite part of the blog is that she includes five little things that week that she loves. Food for thought, fuel, and pleasure, all in one spot.
This food blog follows food throughout the year, highlighting what's in season. I'm a huge advocate for buying local, so it is wonderful to follow the blog and find great recipes for the fruits and vegetables that are in season. The stories that go along with each recipe pulls you into the moment with her. But what really puts the icing on the cake, is the amazing photography that captures not only the food, but the experience as a whole. It's just a wonderful blog.
Sweet tooths unite! This quirky and sweet dessert blog leaves you in love with the adorkable blogger and wanting to bring out the flour and sugar! One of her recent posts was on Salted Caramel + Nutella stuffed double chocolate chip cookies, which are pictured. Need I say more?!
So, I recently got suckered into the Paleo Diet. Dieting and being a foodie is not a good combo. I don't think I could have lasted as long as I did if it wasn't for Nom Nom Paleo. It is creatively delicious. She has step by step recipes of Paleo meals that make dieting actually enjoyable. She has recipes for everyone's carb loaded favorites converted into delicious Paleo-friendly alternatives. Now that is talent!
Ok, I know it's not a food blog, but I had to include it. It is the holy grail of food porn. This incredible gallery of food links you directly to the recipes and food blogs your heart (and stomach) desires. I'll take one of everything!
I hope you enjoyed this week's Friday Five. If there is a Friday Five list you would like us to blog about email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
