Food Blogs: Time to Eat!

Warning: read these blogs at your own risk. Cravings will follow.

This week my focus is on food blogs.  And that should come as no surprise. Food is pretty important. It can also be delicious. It can be a way to spend time with family. It can even beautiful as the photos on these blogs will attest.  It’s clear, however, that not everybody can eat everything. There are restrictions. There are allergies. There are diets. There are budgets. But, there are also options.  And, luckily, there are also a host of great blogs out there serving up inspiring dish after inspiring dish. So with that in mind, let’s chop up some veggies, pre-heat the oven and enjoy this brief taste of some of the best food blogs I’ve seen lately.

The Kosher Foodies is a blog written by identical twin sisters looking to keep kosher while simultaneously trying to keep good food in their lives. Actually, good might be an understatement. The food looks downright delicious. Keeping kosher is a dietary restriction, but again, you wouldn’t know it from the looks of the food on here. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for anything to do with food and religion, specifically Judaism. Check out the full review here.

Trailer Park Karma is a food blog that’s not just about food. It’s about life. It’s about where people end up. It’s about karma. But here’s the thing, people eat along the way, right? You still have to come to the table. Luckily, this blog is sharing the recipes from their table for everyone to enjoy. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for anything to do with food, and possibly Buddhism. Check out the full review here.

John and Elana Talk About Food is a brother and sister food blog. The pair have scoured New York City for the best Italian food available. They also share the recipes from their own culinary experiments. But what sets this site apart is the familial bond that is so clearly strong between these two. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for anything to do with Italian food and siblings. Check out the full review here.

Gluten Free Girl is a food blog chronicling one woman’s quest to eliminate her gluten intake, while continuing to eat well. I must confess I was a skeptic. But after reading over this blog, I see it is possible. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for recipes with wheat alternatives. And please, please, please don’t be the one to pitch this blog a bread-centric recipe. Check out the full review here.

Smitten Kitchen is a great big food blog born out of a tiny little kitchen. You can expect to see great dish after great dish on this site. But don’t expect to see fancy, hard-to-access ingredients. The site wants to share good food that readers can make themselves. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for anything to do with food. Stories that help cooks make the most of their space might also work. Check out the full review here.

That’s all for now. In the meantime, if there’s a blog I should be reviewing, drop me a line or a note in the comments, and I’ll take a look. Until next time…
