“What are your favorite food blogs? Where do you get your best recipes?”

We asked those questions on Facebook and the response was fantastic. We post a few of your suggestions here on Fridays to inspire your upcoming meal plans. Explore and enjoy!

Healthy Cooking:

101 Cookbooks, A Recipe Journal

Heidi Swanson collects cookbooks. Lots of them.

“The premise this site was built on is best summed up in two sentences: When you own over 100 cookbooks, it is time to stop buying, and start cooking. This site chronicles a cookbook collection, one recipe at a time.”

Fortunate for us, Heidi is also an amazing photographer and writer. 101 Recipes is a beautiful website that organizes recipes based on category, ingredient, and season. Prepare your foodie palate and lose yourself in Heidi’s 101 cookbooks.


Food allergies:

Against All Grain

For those of us struggling with food allergies, finding new recipe inspiration is like striking gold. Danielle Walker was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease when she was 22 years old and realized she needed to make dietary changes to end her suffering.

“(Danielle) removed grains, lactose, and legumes from her diet, and started her blog to help others suffering from similar ailments continue to enjoy food. With her acquired culinary skills, love for food, and an equal love for journalism, she has become a source of hope for others suffering from all types of diseases or allergies.”

Danielle’s recipes are uncompromising and sure to bring hope to your kitchen if you have struggled to find it due to an illness.



Family Cooking:

Budget Bytes

“The recipes in this blog are SIMPLE, QUICK and SATISFYING. This blog will probably be most useful for those who do not normally cook or have been too afraid to try. I serve up the classics and show how easy, satisfying and inexpensive they can be. If you are a chef or have been cooking for years then, yes, this blog may seem elementary. BUT there is a whole generation, no, a COUPLE of generations that have grown up without simple home cooked meals. Lets bring back the lost art of cooking!”

Beth walks us through the details of how to cook some tasty meals that can feed a few or a lot, then tells us exactly how much it cost.



Emiko Davies

As one who is not in a position in life to travel, I am thankful for writers like Emiko Davies who brings a Tuscan adventure to her readers. I started following her blog when I stumbled across her Rose petal Jam from a Venetian monastery and have been hooked by her adventures ever since.

“Living in Florence, Tuscany for 7 years taught me a few things about Italian cuisine. One, that it doesn’t really exist; rather, there are twenty regional cuisines. Two, that traditions rule. Here, I share the anecdotes, techniques and history behind some favourite traditional regional recipes. Many are historical, many are Tuscan.”


Sweet Tooth:


Have you ever wanted to learn how to cook desserts from a former French pastry chef? Custards, ice cream, sorbets, macarons, tarts, cookies, cupcakes, breads… it’s all here. Much of it is Gluten free and all of it is perfectly photographed.

“Welcome to Tartelette, a blog devoted to food photography, fresh seasonal ingredients and celebrating life! I’m Helene, Senior Photographer at Oxmoor House. A French expat, photographer, wife, dog lover, friend, neighbor, living in Birmingham, Alabama…!

I started this blog in 2006, after I left a position as Pastry Chef of a French restaurant, unsure of what to do next. I just knew it would evolve around photography and food. And not only sweets!”
