Some of the links below are blogs to which I subscribe.
Some links I’ve merely added to My Favorites online.
I hope you’ll take a little time to explore a few.
Some might inspire. Others offer useful food-related information.

Food Blogs and Food Websites, or at least partially-foodie, in general:
http://savorysimple.net/ – Recent culinary school grad writes, All of the recipes on Savory Simple are either my creations or are adapted from cookbooks, food magazines, family recipes and other blogs. When I created this site I was a big fan of savory dishes, hence the name “Savory Simple.”
http://frugalfeeding.wordpress.com/ – sub-titled with a definition, n. frugality, the quality of being frugal with money or food. College grad in the UK started this blog before he graduated with honors in history.
http://malouprestado.wordpress.com/ – Going Dutch site. Young woman from Philippines marries Dutchman, moved to Netherlands. Blog includes recipes along with stories, info about both cultures.
http://mamasgottabake.wordpress.com/ – Sub-titled, she’s bad, she’s bold and she likes sugar! Not just recipes – also about restaurants and other foodplaces she visits. She’s in California. And her photos make me hungry.
http://domesticdivamd.com/ – Sub-titled, My Mother Raised the Perfect Housewife… Then I Went to Med School. A story based on experience (often humorous), followed by an aptly-named recipe, with every post.
http://russianmomcooks.wordpress.com/ – Complete title would be Russian Mom Cooks While Chasing Kids. She writes, My name is Anastasia. I was born and raised in Russia, and moved to the States in my early 20s. I am a stay-at-home mom of two beautiful babies and a wife of their wonderful dad. I’m living the dream, loving my family to pieces, and getting lost in books when I’m not busy chasing the kids around the house!
http://www.amateurgourmet.com/ – A Funny Block with Recipes, Restaurant Reviews and More. Truly worth a look-see!
http://www.101cookbooks.com/ – Cookbook author blogs about cooking, natural foods, travel, etc.
http://107cookbooks.com/ – Blog began as its writer challenged herself: The 107 Cookbooks project is a year-long challenge. By the end of June 2010, I will have cooked at least one recipe from each of the books in my collection. Including the Recipes of the Damned books. I have set up a schedule for the year, to ensure that I keep up a manageable pace and that I don’t get stuck cooking Christmas dishes in May, and will be posting updates as I work my way through. I love this idea! I think she’s a little late in reaching her goal, but the calendar says she’s reached #92.
http://www.blue-kitchen.com/ – Good food. Great stories. I swear… so the sub-title goes. Site’s author tells readers, Blue Kitchen is the name of the mythical restaurant I will never open, because I’m smart enough to know that it would be punishingly hard work. The name Blue Kitchen evokes visions of a romantic, bohemian place—chalkboard menu, little wooden tables and mismatched kitchen chairs, art on the walls, candles on the tables and jazz on the sound system. He’s a food writer and “amateur chef” who just loves to cook.
http://chocolateandzucchini.com/ – The “About” section states, Chocolate & Zucchini is a blog written by Clotilde Dusoulier, a 31-year-old Parisian woman who lives in Montmartre and shares her passion for all things food-related. Here you’ll find recipe ideas and cooking inspiration, as well as musings on quirky ingredients, cookbook acquisitions, nifty tools, and restaurant experiences.
http://www.closetcooking.com/ – Toronto-based cook’s inspiration: I came to realize that my meals were boring and that I had been eating the same few dishes over and over again for years. It was time for a change! I now spend my free time searching for and trying tasty new recipes in my closet sized kitchen.
http://www.soupchick.com/ – Blog writer says, In my log house kitchen in northwest Rhode Island, I write about food, teach cooking classes, and run a nonprofit organization. She also notes, I’m the founder and director of an organization called Drop In & Decorate. I hope you’ll go to the site and read more about how we decorate cookies for donation to food pantries, family shelters, domestic violence shelters, and other local agencies serving neighbors in need all around the world. It’s a wonderful program, and you can be part of it.
http://dessertstalking.com/ – DessertStalking… because life is short. Love the title! Its “About” page opening paragraph says, DessertStalking has a two-fold purpose. First, for those who just come to watch, it is a place to find all the sweet stuff that food blogs have to offer, in beautiful photography and great recipes, as well as reviews and conversations. Secondly, it’s a place for food bloggers and photographers to show their stuff and to drive a bit of traffic to their websites.
http://thebigfatnoodle.com/ – The blog mistress tells us, thebigfatnoodle is all about finding, making, creating or talking about un-poncey and yummy food. More often than not, it’s about cooking with thebigfatnoodle’s other half and helping him forget about the scars left by a lifetime of awful English school dinners whilst discovering new tastes and sensations – food that should be fun to make and scrumptious to eat. She was born in Hong Kong, has lived in Singapore and Australia, now lives in England.
