Favorite Food Blog/Website
« on: May 01, 2013, 11:27:30 AM »
Do you have a favorite food blog or website you regularly visit? There are a *lot* of great ones out there, but can you pick just one and tell us why.

Though I love the Cook's Illustrated site, I have to say that I find Skinny Taste ( http://www.skinnytaste.com/ ) to be my favorite. I am beginning to cook from this regularly. It's not for the fact that she has recipes that are low-calorie, low fat but that they are invariably tasty. And interesting!

So . . . which is your favorite? Please name just one.

All recipes.com  -   I like the fact that they have a section near the top where I can put in an ingredient and it will list a bunch of recipes that call for it.  Now nearly no more left over bits of a certain ingredient I buy and think I will use only once.

So many good ones, but to name just one favorite food blog:  http://orangette.blogspot.com/

Great recipes, but her writing on various subjects is wonderful, largely food related but covering a wide array of tangents.  Her writing can be funny, touching or both.
Never refuse to do a kindness unless the act would work great injury to yourself, and never refuse to take a drink -- under any circumstances.

I've been teaching myself to decorate cakes for a few years now, and I'm getting pretty good. So I love

http://cakewrecks.squarespace.com/

First off, it's hilarious.

Secondly, when I see a cake that a professional has just totally ruined, I like to try it for myself to see how I do. And I LOVE the sunday sweets section.

I love to browse through http://foodgawker.com/ .  This is a site where anyone can showcase a recipe.  Plus the pictures are fantastic!

I go here for inspiration when I have no idea what to make for dinner.

http://www.seriouseats.com/

It's got reviews, recipes, and a section called the Food Lab where they explain how different parts of cooking work with chemistry. It's neat!

I think this would qualify... www.marksdailyapple.com. It's all about primal living and I love it! :) Also, I do like Allrecipe.com. So many great recipes.

I like this one:

http://www.amateurgourmet.com/

Pretty simple recipes and good tips.   A nice mix of all kind of foods (breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert) and often some good restaurant recommendations, too.

darn it amara!!! there aren't enough hours in the day for my other food reading now you start this thread.....  *pout*

i go to moneysavingexpert.com and into the forums,  the Old Style one has some lovely recipe ideas and one member even trialed and set up a website/blog   http://www.cheap-family-recipes.org.uk/  and priced out recipes,  i've made several of her recipes and loved them all
