It can happen to all of us ... a season where cooking just feels like too much, too boring, too anything.
Today, I want to look at the third thing that inspires me to actually get in my pretty kitchen and start preparing something delicious to eat.
Tip #3: Find a few food blogs that match your style of cooking, or even ones that might be a little different and try a few new recipes. Food blogs are amazing. So creative and fun. Here are a few of my favorites.
One Perfect Bite is the first food blog that I ever read. Mary is a delight. She is an amazing cook, but also a food historian. You can impress your family with some great food, and entertain them with some fun facts. Mary also brings home wonderful recipes from her international travels.
Do you remember these cookies that I have raved about several times on my blog? This delicious recipe and many more came from Pam's Midwest Kitchen Corner. I began reading Pam's blog when we still lived in Seattle and now we both have midwest kitchens. (Pam is on a summer blogging break and I look forward to her return in the Fall.)
FROM A WRITER'S KITCHEN
I love From A Writer's Kitchen. Bonnie's blog combines two elements I enjoy ... she is a great cook and she is a great wordsmith.
I also love Bonnie. We are blogging friends that got out of our virtual worlds to get together several times. This summer I took the train to Indiana to spend the day with her.
A delicious Thai meal, a tour of the most beautiful library I have ever seen, (as chairman of the library board, Bonnie was instrumental in this project), enjoying pictures of our kid's weddings, and the wonderful feeling that we could talk all day ... made it a perfect summer day for me.
This summer we cannot stop eating Chris' amazing Fresh Corn Salad. You will enjoy all the delicious recipes on The Cafe Sucre Farine, all beautifully photographed by her husband.
I was able to meet Chris when she came to Chicago for a wedding. We had so much in common. (we are both followers of Jesus, had daughters living in England, enjoy our husbands, share many favorite books, etc.)
Well, there you have it ... a few of my favorite food blogs. What are your favorites?
