8 Food Blog Links We Love

July 25, 2014

We've scoured the web for our favorite food blog posts, and now we're bringing them right to your desktop. It’s hard work, but someone has to do it.

Summer food is great for many reasons (ice cream! barbecues!), not the least of which is the abundance of color, vibrancy, and flavor. This weekend, fill up on cucumbers, tomatoes, peaches, corn, zucchini, basil, figs, cherries, and berries, and marvel at the beauty on your plate. Need some inspiration? Just read these links.

  • For a different take on crostini, try topping roasted eggplant with heirloom tomatoes and balsamic. (With Food and Love.)

  • For dessert, try an airy chocolate meringue cake, piled high with fresh fruit. (The Artful Desperado.)

Ours! I feel okay about promoting it because it's Nicole's photography that makes it special, nothing whatsoever that I'm doing. http://somekitchenstories.com/
