When it comes to recipes, tips or even opinions on food, it seems that everyone has something to say these days. Fortunately, I’ve done my homework to compile a list of top food bloggers who definitely know what they’re talking about! I surveyed foodie platforms from around the United States to share my favorite blogs based on content, recipes, readability, photos, and personality, and I’m fairly certain you won’t disagree with my picks. Check out these four blogs you need to follow immediately:
Why I love it: This easy-to-read and easy-to-navigate blog is beautifully illustrated with food photography that perfectly captures every tiny detail of the recipe. After first glance, you’re immediately drawn to the creation that will soon grace your own kitchen countertop. My favorite aspect of this blog is that wife-husband blogger team, Dana and John, only create recipes that require 10 ingredients or less, one bowl or one pot, or take 30 minutes or less to prepare. The best part? Most of her recipes are vegan and gluten free! One of my favorites is this recipe for Toasted Coconut Pancakes…mmmm…
2) Pinch of Yum
Why I love it: Elementary-School-Teacher-turned-full-time-Blogger, Lindsay, takes readers on a culinary adventure through gorgeous snapshots of exquisite creations that make you want to run to the kitchen and pull out your sauté pans. She doesn’t stick to one type of special diet, so her recipes appeal to any and all tastes. Her recipes inspire with influences from all over the world, including Mediterranean quinoa bowls, Korean barbecue steak and Spicy Brazilian burritos, just to name a few.
Why I love it: Food enthusiast and Recipe Developer, Jaclyn, is clearly passionate about everything she whips up, and her enthusiasm is contagious through her posts. While her recipe repertoire is extensive, she really shines in her ability to create and photograph sweets. She has dedicated sections that showcase brownies and bars, cake and cupcakes, cookies, desserts, ice cream and chilled desserts, and many more! Only downfall – because the site is so graphic heavy, loading is a bit finicky, but trust me, the recipes are worth the wait!
4) Budget Bytes
Why I love it: Let’s face it: most of us are not millionaires. We don’t have wads of cash lying around to spend on high-end ingredients from natural food stores. We live on a budget, just like food lover and number cruncher, Beth, of Budget Bytes. Beth helps you create meal masterpieces within reasonable budgets that many of us are accustomed to. Take this Jewel Pasta recipe for example…your guests will think you spent many jewels on the ingredients, but it will really only cost you about $4.50!
Whether you’re cooking on a budget, looking for ways to spice up your next date night, or need a sweet treat to impress your kiddos, these food blogs will provide you with the know-how to get cookin’!
