Nicole Weston, a Los Angeles-based pastry chef, food writer and recipe developer, is the creator of Baking Bites. We love that in addition to her great recipes and photos, the site features “How To’s and Tips” and “Tools and Gadgets” sections. Too many food blogs offer just a recipe, Baking Bites helps you learn how to bake and give you extra confidence in the kitchen.

2013 has been a great year for Southern cooking — from John Besh to Sean Brock to A Chef’s Life. For the Love of the South is one of our favorite blogs about Southern food. Written by Amber Wilson, the site presents simple recipes and beautiful photos that truly capture the essence of the best ingredients that Southern cooking offers.

Utokia Langley authors She’s Got Flavor, which provides a wide range of delicious dishes that are designed to satisfy any family. While many food blogs present recipes that seem unattainable to a busy family, we always feel She’s Got Flavor offers real dishes that can inspire event the busiest families to cook real meals.

Green Kitchen Stories

Green Kitchen Stories is a gorgeous blog written by David Grenkiel and Luise Vinduhl. The blog offers some of the most interesting and exciting vegetarian recipes we’ve seen. While vegetarians would obviously love the site, we highly reommend the site to anyone who wants to add more plant-based meals in to their diet. Or quite frankly, anyone who just wants to drool over beautiful food images.

Joe Pastry

Unlike many food blogs, the focus of Joe Pastry is not photography. Instead, the site focuses on baking techniques, food history, science and nutrition. If you are a “baking nerd” like Joe, you’ll be able to spend hours pouring through his library of posts.

What Katie Ate

Katie Quinn Davies is the author of the blog (and now a book) What Katie Ate. Based in Sydney, Australia, she posts interesting recipes accompanied by beautiful photos. But what really sets this blog apart are the images she shares from her travels across Europe and the world. Good luck resisting checking on airfare after perusing Katie’s photos from the Italian Amalfi Coast.

Erin Gleeson was a professional food photographer in New York for many years, working with top chefs, restaurants and publications. But in 2011, she moved with her husband to a cabin in the woods in Northern California. Her blog celebrates cooking healthy and locally-sources recipes that will inspire you to learn how to eat more sustainably. And, as you would expect, her photos are spectacular.

The Roaming Kitchen is written by Cristina Sciarra, a writer and cook in New York. She combines her kitchen skills (she studied at Le Cordon Bleu and the Institute of Culinary Education) and writing talent (MFA in Fiction Writing) to post recipes, essays and photos. Her words are as delicious as her photos — so beware, reading one post might turn into a full afternoon before you know it.

How Sweet It Is

Jessica Hunt is a the author of How Sweet it Is, though the blog offers a wide range of recipes, not just sweets. We enjoy Jessica’s blog because her passion for cooking always shine through in her posts. She’s also a huge James Taylor fan (hence, the blog name) which we can totally stand behind.
