Food Blog Mania

I’ve been doing much more reading of food blogs recently than writing my own. Unfortunately my new living situation isn’t lending itself well to cooking, but what I do have right now is an internet connection and my boyfriend’s kitchen on loan. Not to mention his patience and understanding (except for my alleged loud typing while we watch TV.  He has no patience for that, lemme tell ya). Keith understands as well as I do how important safely feeding my body and mind are, and has been more than generous by lending his kitchen to me, as long as he gets to taste whatever I am making 🙂

Today, his house had the smell of freshly baked bread wafting through it. Even with the windows open, the damp air seemed to cling to the smell instead of the other way around. It was heavenly, and I was (and am) so grateful that I can prepare food there! If you’ve never tried Bob’s Red Mill Homemade Wonderful Bread Mix, that is my go to. I am trying to save some money at the moment and baking my own bread is a great way to do that. At $7 per loaf, Whole Foods will not be getting any more of my bread  money until I am working full time again. Sorry, Whole Foods. Much love.

One thing that is helping my creative itch while my hands are figuratively tied in the kitchen is Foodgawker! Holy moly, how did I not know about this gem of a site before now? I think I’d run across it once or twice, but friends…if you love food porn as much as I do, this should be your first stop. It’s a great way to drool over new ideas and discover new bloggers who all love beautifully styled and well cooked food. I have found and linked several new blogs in the last few days, so check out the side menu and visit the others!  One of my new favorites is Tartelette. WOW. She has amazing gluten free recipes. I really do not notice that it is specifically gluten free, the food is gorgeous and unpretentious. I am just so impressed!  Yum. Check it out!
