8 Food Blog Links We Love

January 31, 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.

Game day is just two days away, and while everyone has different reasons for watching (a love of football, a weakness for commercials, a crush on Bruno Mars), we can all agree that the food is the best part. Meatballs, tacos, chicken wings, ribs -- make any (or all) of these crowd-pleasing snacks at your party and you'll be the one everybody cheers for. These links will help.

The grocery store is my happy place.

The chili lime barley salad looks delicious- but it's listed as gluten-free. Barley is a huge no-no for us with Celiac disease. Just thought I'd mention it. ~Too bad for me, it's just the kind of meal I miss most.

I'm going to Petite Kitchen (but I'll be back ;) ) right now to get that barley salad recipe. Thanks for sharing the posts and letting me discover new recipes.
