8 Food Blog Links We Love

July  4, 2015

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.

This week: Agua fresca, potato salad, hamburger buns, and everything else you'll need for your July Fourth picnic.

Agua Fresca Green tea  Pops Tomato Sandwich  

  • Grapefruit, watermelon, and lime make a zippy agua fresca—and a very refreshing cocktail base. (Sprouted Kitchen)
  • Cold-brew a big pitcher of green tea, made special thanks to an addition of rose petals. (101 Cookbooks)
  • It's summer's best sandwich—and it only has three ingredients. (Cup of Jo)
  • Cool down with watermelon ice pops (just make enough to share!). (Orangette)

Potato Salad Buns Cake Crisp   

  • This grilled potato salad gains zing from a basil chimichurri and heft from seven-minute eggs. (Half Baked Harvest)
  • What happens when you cross an everything bagel with a hamburger bun? You become the most popular person at the picnic. (A Cozy Kitchen)
  • Just-in-season cherries and blackberries get an oaty maple-pecan topping. (Well Plated)
  • A lemon-blueberry yogurt loaf festive enough for the Fourth and virtuous enough for breakfast. (Cookie and Kate)

Great suggestions! You HAVE to check out! Blogger is a young Philippino woman named Rowena who married into a large Italian family and moved to Italy. Her food is beyond amazing and her blog is very well organized. Her olive oil orange cake with pistachios is simply over the top, photos are beyond beautiful! I'm not related, I promise, just a fan! LOL check it out!
