Blogs We Love: Food on Paper

While you're waiting for the gorgeous print of FOOD52's 10 Essential Cookbooks, here's a food-related art project to keep you satisfied: in Food On Paper, artist Elizabeth Graeber draws and paints original watercolors of food.

What food, do you ask? Well, your standard beautiful beets, onions, and lemons -- you really can't go wrong with fresh produce -- but she doesn't stop there. Food On Paper also extends to pantry items and snack food -- gummy bears (as seen above), Bragg's apple cider vinegar, and sriracha all make appearances.

If that appearance by the world's greatest hot sauce didn't make your day, we have even better news: all of these prints are available for sale in Food On Paper's shop. I will happily give my address to anyone who wants to buy me the painting of a can of Vienna sausages.

Love Vegetables? You'll Love Herbivoracious

Here's what you encounter when you visit the website for Michael Natkin's new book, Herbivoracious: A Flavor Revolution with 150 Vibrant and Original Vegetarian Recipes, based on his blog of the same name: "I Don’t Care if you are a Vegetarian, Omnivore, Carnivore, Vegan, Pescetarian, or Flexitarian!"

And it's true! Whether you're a lifelong vegetarian or just looking to work more meatless meals into your diet, Natkin's refreshing and beautiful recipes are a wonderful place to get started. We spoke with him about how he came to food blogging after a years-long career in computer graphics, what it was like transforming a blog into a book idea, and more.

Blogs We Love: My New Roots

It's not just the inventive recipes or the colorful, step-by-step photography that has us loving Sarah Britton's popular food blog, My New Roots. It's her conversational approach (she addresses readers like they're old friends, teaching them while sharing something special), her thoughtful selection of the healthiest ingredients, her Quinoa Spring Sushi, her whole darn life. Every recipe is a chance to share a story, and many of her dishes draw direct inspiration from her experiences.

Blogs We Love: Nook Eatery

 

A lovely thing about recipes is their capacity to travel quickly. From every known corner of the world they come, alighting upon our computer screens, and then — if we're feeling particularly ambitious one summer night — on our own kitchen tables. It ensures that even if we can't make it to that island off the coast of Greece or to the hills of Northeastern China, we can still eat like we were born there.  And even if we will never visit the cosy street corner in Stellenbosch, South Africa where Nook Eatery resides, we can still get there by daydream, traveling via the sun-dappled photos and simple-but-oh-so sweet recipes they regularly feature on their blog.

Blogs We Love: Bon Appétempt

This cleverly named, beautifully photographed, and often hilarious blog is a series of attempts - culinary and otherwise.
