Need some kitchen inspiration? These ladies and their blogs are sure to help you kick your food game up a notch!
How Sweet It Is – I’ve been following Jessica since I started my first blog in October 2011 and her name may ring a bell from my last recipe roundup post. Her photography in-and-of-itself is sure to make you drool and she’s certainly not afraid to (as she calls it) “trash up” her dishes which make for even more drooling. She has a little boy about six weeks older than Cecilia, so I feel like we “bonded” over our pregnancies and first year of motherhood. Also, while reading some of her posts, I sometimes have to take a step back and remember that I didn’t write it myself because I feel like we’re similar in too many ways to count. She’s one of those people who I’ve never met, but just by reading her writing and following her on Instagram, I feel like I know her and if we ever did meet we’d be BFFs. Do I sound total creepster right about now?
What’s Gaby Cooking? – I don’t remember how I came across Gaby’s blog, but I’ve been following her for about a year. One of my favorite things on her site is her “Gaby’s Guides” to different cities across the world she’s travelled to. I’ve tried a few places during my travels and her recommendations have been spot on. She also lives in Southern California so I love that we have that in common as well. I’ve made a few things from her site recently and they are T-A-S-T-Y! Nothing is overly complicated (which is a huge plus!) and the finished product is memorable – perfect combo!
Joy the Baker – Joy’s photographs and Instagram are downright gorgeous. Pair that with her unique recipes and quirky personality and you’ve got a great blogger to follow. Oh, and her cookbooks are pretty enough to be a coffee table book. I’ve never been disappointed when I’ve made a Joy the Baker recipe and I have so many more saved that I want to make. I just need to throw a ton of parties to get through them all!
Baby Foode – I came across this blog last summer when I first started making food for Cecilia. I love the layout of the site and how it is separated into ages and it’s great that Michele posts photos of what her kids eat at each meal to get some additional inspiration. I’ve been incorporating spices and herbs into Cecilia’s food from the start, so I appreciate how Michele does the same and realizes that baby food doesn’t have to be bland and boring. Cecilia’s been a fan of everything I’ve made from this site, and I must admit, that I’d eat it all, too!
Butterlust – I first learned of Katie’s blog in 2013 when I sent cookies to her as part of the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. You won’t really find any dinner recipes on her site, but if you’re in need of a great breakfast recipe or dessert, she’s your gal! Seriously, whenever I see the title of a new recipe in my feed, my jaw drops.
If you didn’t follow any of these sites before, I hope you do now! While I follow a TON of food blogs, these gals and their sites are in my top five. Their recipes are husband and baby approved!
