8 Food Blog Links We Love

January 24, 2014

We've scoured the web, found 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.

Even though a certain love-centric holiday is weeks away, it seems that many of our favorite food bloggers have chocolate on the brain. From tarts and pies to cookies and pancakes, chocolate has worked its way into every dish this week. We say, why wait until February 14th? Enjoy it now. (And later.) These links will help.

Thanks for all the wonderful tips, everyone! You've given me some great sites to include in future posts.

This is a great roundup! Though I have to say that while I've browsed through many of these blogs on occasion, I always go back to With The Grains, especially when I'm in the mood for a classic recipe with a fun and quirky twist. I especially love the pie crust with chevre...I actually eat it like a cookie (no shame).

That chocolate and orange tart is just breathtaking! Thanks for the constant inspiration @food52. I'm a New Zealand based wholefood blogger who loves that thanks to internet, I am inspired daily by blogs and sites from all over the world.

I've had a cooking blog for a little over a year. Mine is not your traditional "recipe" blog. It stems from my kitchen make over. I started posting on Facebook "hmmm, what am I going to make in my new kitchen?" hence,! It is all about what I make for dinner. I'd love to hear commentary from you! I could use all the help I can get.... Thanks..

such yummy links! i saw the marcona almond and chocolate chip blondies earlier this week. genius! i'm kind of relieved to see treats and such instead of resolution friendly recipes...moderation in all things, right?

I made these crackers from TheKitchn as part of my on-going efforts to replace store-bought staples with homemade ones.
These were delicious, super easy, and totally done in 45 minutes flat!
