Foodie Friday: Go visit these foodie blogs
Today I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite food-related blogs. Go visit these sites and try a recipe or two. You won't be disappointed:
Bleeding Espresso -- Actually, you need to go to this site whether you cook or not. So much great stuff, not only about food but also about Italy, living simply, and much, much more. And the photos? Just breathtaking. So go. Now. It will be like taking a mini vacation in Calabria.
The Pioneer Woman -- Another great foodie blog that is about so much more than food. Sure you can get a recipe for spicy beans or red velvet cake (with photos to guide you through every step of the recipe), but you'll also find tips on home decorating, gardening, homeschooling, entertainment, and yet more beautiful photos. I'll give you a few minutes while you go there and come back here for the next suggestion.
Milkbreath & Margaritas -- Although this site looks like it's going through some revamping, check out the "Mouthwatering Monday" section for some great recipes. Bourbon chocolate mousse. Need I say more?
Global Vegan Kitchen -- Pretty self-explanatory, no? I have Vegan Planet by Robin Roberston (Global Vegan is her site), and I just love it. If you're looking for a great vegan cookbook, get that one. And, if nothing else, whether you're vegan or not, make the sweet potato/black bean enchiladas. Heaven.
Mark Bittman -- As I have mentioned in at least one previous post, Mark Bittman (aka The Minimalist) has become my food guru. Every recipe of his I've made has been perfection, from the risotto-stuffed Swiss chard to lentils with stuck pot rice. I don't just love his recipes and his minimalist style, I love his food philosophy. Join the cult.
That's it for today. I'll be back next Friday with a recipe or review. Ciao.
