I love cooking blogs. I read them the way other people read blogs about Arctic exploration or Saharan expeditions. It's something we read of without actually intending to DO. I'm vastly intrigued by what other people keep in their kitchen cupboards, what their fallback comfort foods are, how they approach food. So here are a few of my favorite cooking blogs:
*Poor Girl Eats Well . The name says it all. Good food on a budget, and Poor Girl is VERY mindful of both her palate and her pocketbook.
*Pioneer Woman . Ree Drummond doesn't cook for wimps. Her food looks like it's full of flavor and sass and fat. I say "looks like" because I am too frightened of the cholesterol ramifications to try any of the recipes, but they look GOOD, and everybody I know who has tried out her dishes has raved.
*Chocolate and Zucchini . Clotilde Dusoulier's Parisian blog. I feel like a world traveler just from reading it.
*Traveler's Lunchbox. Melissa Kronenthal's gorgeous blog. I spent a week drooling over the caramels.
So what are you favorite food blogs and do you cook from them or just read them for food porn?
