Caroline Wright’s blog, The Wright Recipes, is one talented, young cook’s outlet for experimenting in the kitchen. When Wright, a food stylist, writer and recipe developer who cut her chops at Martha Stewart's Everyday Food, has an idea that she cannot explore at her day job, she turns to her blog, where she posts one new recipe, photo and brief write-up daily. Wright’s food is focused and unadorned. And it fits her life—it's fun but practical. She says that she can teach anyone to cook, regardless of skill level. Along those lines, her recipes are easy to follow, with accompanying up-close photographs that are beautiful in their simplicity. For instance, a shot of her Dreamy Chocolate Cream Pie reveals nothing more than rich pudding, a graham cracker crust and a mound of freshly-whipped cream. What else do you need? One great feature of the site is Wright's weekly $20 in 20 Minutes or Less column, where she cooks quick and inexpensive meals. In fact, Wright kicked off the blog with a $20/20 post almost one year ago. She says that she's inspired to cook food that's both cheap and fast, but also interesting: "I want to give my readers the confidence to bring different styles of tasty, but also somewhat familiar, food to the dinner table." One look at a recent $20/20 meal—Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Swiss Chard Polenta—has us convinced this is not only possible, but delicious.
