The best food blogs you never heard of

We all know the "big" food sites, but there are so many little gems waiting to be explored...

Baking in a Tornado

At Baking in a Tornado, Karen combines observations and musings about daily life with her recipes--the food tends toward the rich and delicious, but everyone needs a special treat now and then, right?

It's an interesting thing about words that they don't just have meanings but connotations. We have dictionaries for definitions but many words, when heard and when used, are interpreted more in the context of what they mean to us personally. I've had this conversations recently with my older son in terms of words that segments of our society consider derogatory.

Skinny Kitchen | Healthy Recipes Blog, Low Fat Recipes, Weight Watchers Recipes

Nancy Fox runs Skinny Kitchen--as you'd guess from the name, this site is all about cutting the calories...but not the taste. Each recipe includes Weight Watchers points, for those of us who keep track of our eating that way.

All breakfast foods in one hearty, super delicious dish. I can't wait for you to taste this luxuriously rich casserole! Perfect for the holiday weekend. It's so easy to make since using shredded frozen hash browns. I'm also adding bacon cooked on paper towels in the microwave to remove most [...]

Eating Wildly

Ava Chin is an urban forager: she knows where to find incredible edibles...right under your nose! Her website is fascinating, diverse, and entertaining.

In celebration of #NationalEatYourVegetablesDay, this summer, I'm going to showcase some of the most sustainable wild vegetables that are available and growing all around us, most likely in your backyard, garden, or local park. Wild edibles are higher in phytonutrients-that's antioxidants, and good, old-fashioned nutrients that are inherent to the flora-than most vegetables found in [...]

K Cocina

K Cochina brings together the tastes of Latina cuisine, traditional Brazilian recipes, and more standard fare. Gorgeous photos!

K Cocina: Bringing Sabor Into Your Life

Urban Naturale

Deborah Smikle-Davis' Urban Naturale covers more than just cooking, but her approach is fresh and healthy, and her Meatless Monday suggestions offer great meat-free meals for those of us who are trying to create healthier lives.

Like many of us, I used to drink a lot of coffee but now I prefer green tea. In fact, I love green tea so that I have become a big green tea drinker. On most days I have at least 3 cups of green tea in the morning and sometimes I will have a cup in [...]

Relocation: The Blog

Mindy Klapper Trotta is a baker par excellence--she calls herself a "potato chip loving pastry chef," but we've seen nary a trace of chips in her delectable recipes. Granted, the blog is about more than cooking, but Mindy's recipes really are to die for!

Browned Butter puts its pale yellow, insipid cousin to shame. It is butter that's gone on a vacation...to the tropics...and it's come home all tawny and burnished, and smelling goood. It's a little wild, a little flirty and sputtery, so it needs to be watched carefully as you melt it down.

Recipe Renovator - Building a healthy life

Stephanie Weaver's blog is all about taking recipes and adapting them for those with special dietary needs--vegan, diabetic, migraine-friendly, paleo, and so on. It's a neat approach, and the results look pretty awesome, melding healthy with delicious.

Is it hot where you are? This giveaway is hot! Our June giveaway features the four cookbooks I reviewed this month, a chile prize package, frozen Hatch chiles from New Mexico, a beautiful recycled cutting board from Epicurean, and bonus gifts of delicious dried raspberries from Stoneridge Orchards and a copy of The Unforgettable Photograph [...]

Healthy Nibbles & Bits

For cooking with a healthy twist, look no further than Lisa Lin's Healthy Nibbles & bits. Her Vegan Asian Cabbage Wraps caught our eye, and we'll be trying them ASAP!

A medley of fresh corn kernels, zucchini, carrots, and tofu wrapped in fresh savoy cabbage. These delicious wraps double up as the perfect side or main dish! Yesterday, I woke up at 6:50 a.m. for a morning jog. Bleh! I work out in the morning a few times a week, but my morning sessions begin at 9:00 a.m.

Adriana's Best Recipes

Adriana's site is a visual and gustatory delight--with a Latin flair.
