Kiss the Cook

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Tech Tuesday has become a real popular post here at Shot of Brandi*. Reader Amy has been a fan of some tips and reader Lauren is lovin’ her new Google Reader.

As promised, I wanted to share some of my favorite blogs with you. Today, I’ll feature some of the amazing food blogs I frequent.

For those of you who are just starting to read more blogs, let me tell you the food ones are where it is at. The amount of recipes, ideas and photos these bloggers give you are so valuable. Once you start visiting these people, you will never go back to a recipe book again – trust me!

The Kitchn: No, I didn’t spell that wrong. The Kitchn is a blog from the creators of Apartment Therapy – a popular home blog. I LOVE the recipes featured here. They are easy to make and the blog includes a ton of pictures.

Serious Eats: Reader Megan introduced me to Serious Eats because they always blog about Chicago pizza places. This blog has some cool food recommendations and highlights food trends from across the country. While a lot of posts are a good thing, Serious Eats posts 8-10 stories a day, so you need to check this one often.

Joy The Baker: Seriously my favorite blog for all things sweets. I want to gobble up every recipe Joy (right) adds to the site. This girl is so young and talented! She just makes me want to quit my job and become a professional baker.

Bakerella: The originator of the brownie pop, check out this site for up and coming desert options. Bakerella is totally ahead of the trends. Of course, my favorite option is to the right.

Cupcakes Take The Cake: This site is food porn for a cupcake lover! While I love the creative cupcakes, this blog tends to post way too many photos and not enough recipes. However, it’s a popular blog worth mentioning.

Finally, while it isn’t a recipe-focused blog, you MUST check out Cake Wrecks. I’ve blogged about this before, but in the words of my idol Rachel Zoe, “I die.” This Web site features cakes gone wrong. There are a plethora of supermarket masterpieces here...enjoy!
