The very first food blog I ever followed was smitten kitchen. I fell in love with her pictures, her recipes, her writing. I instantly knew we’d be friends (of the digital variety). Then came 101 Cookbooks. I fell instantly in love with her “everyday” and “natural” recipes. Cannelle et Vanille was one of my favorites to discover, as her photographs are some of the most stunning food photos I’ve come across.


And as many blogs as there are out there on the Interweb, the food blog world is small. Like, Kevin Bacon two degrees of separation small. The best blogs talk about each other and link to each other and learn from each other. It didn’t take long for me to get completely lost in the rabbit hole that is the food blog world, so in an effort to share with you some of my own inspiration here’s a list of my favorites.
