Food Blogs We Love, Volume 2

Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, we select an industry or subject and a handful of sites that do a good job with promoting, contributing, and blogging about the space. This week, we’re revisiting food blogs. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tell us why @BeyondBylines.

(Check out Volume 1 and Volume 3 of our favorite food blogs.)

Thanksgiving is right around the corner.

I may have been looking forward to revisiting food blogs since April (Food Blogs, Volume 1) or even when I reviewed coffee blogs. Or cheese and fine dining.

I really love you food bloggers. You guys write – and cook up – some good stuff. (I didn’t even need the excuse that November is National Pomegranate Month or Sweet Potato Awareness Month to go here.)

1. Bake at 350

Bake at 350 is the blog of baker and author Bridget Edwards.

Her most recent book came out this fall – Decorating Cookies Party: 10 Celebratory Themes * 50 Designs. Edwards believes “cookies are made to be eaten, not to be perfect,” and “your time is better spent EATING cookies with family and friends than slaving over them.”

As such, this is a fun blog, and the photography is amazing (if I could just figure out how to get a fork through the computer screen).

Some of my favorite posts (there were several) include Biscoff Coffee Cake with Biscoff Crumb Topping, Cake Batter Blondie Bars, and Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies.

If you want to follow Edwards, I recommend starting with her Pinterest page.

2. Eats Well With Others

Eats Well With Others takes a “vegetable- and cupcake-laden approach to life (always with a bit of laughter on the side)!”

Blogger Joanne Bruno started the blog in 2009, while a senior in college as a way to teach herself how to cook.

“What started as just a spur-of-the-moment whim has morphed into something I spend the majority of my time thinking about, an obsession if you will,” Bruno writes, admitting the blog itself has undergone a lot of changes, particularly in the last couple of years, when she embraced a “vegetarian whole-foods based lifestyle.”

Honestly, her Moroccan chickpea and butternut squash soup is probably one of the tastiest bowls of fall soup I’ve laid eyes on.

Also: Curried root vegetable pot pies and rigatoni with spicy pumpkin cream sauce.

3. The Baker Chick

The Baker Chick honestly had me at cheesy cauliflower gratin with bacon. I mean, seriously.

Blogger Audra Fullerton moved from the Midwest to New York to pursue her dream of performing on stage. After five years of acting and doing what she loved, Fullerton pursued another life passion: Baking and cooking.

“I created this blog in February 2011 to document my baking endeavors,” she writes. “Since I can remember I’ve loved everything sweet, and after turning into the ‘go-to girl’ for baking tips and recipes, I decided it was time to start a blog!”

The Baker Chick is a great site. I could honestly spend hours here, pouring through recipes like peanut butter banana cream pie, ginger vanilla bean ice cream sandwiches, cranberry swirl mini cheesecakes, and buttermilk spice layer cake with brown sugar cream cheese frosting.

Have mercy.

4. Eat, Play, Love

Eat, Play, Love chronicles the family and kitchen adventures of a Midwest family of four.

I like how this family cooks “outside the box.”

“In an effort to get out of the at-home, standard-fare rut, to learn to try new things and to open our children up to other cultures around the world, we thought it would be fun to start sampling different recipes from around the globe,” the blog says. “Every month (or so) we select a new country or region from which to try new recipes. We also select a new U.S. state each month and sample some of its local cuisine (and desserts!).”

In her post, Proud Mama, Mom Kristy covers her family’s hand at making Yemeni Ka’ak (“Ka’ak is an Arabic word for cake and the Yemeni version of ka’ak is like a cross between a biscuit and a cookie,” Kristy writes.)

I especially love how involved and hands-on her children are in preparing meals.

Other posts I enjoyed include A Busy Kitchen (Ok, kitten Hobbs – adorable), Harvesting the Last Days of Summer, and Country Magic.
