Five food blogs to follow that feature delicious, doable recipes–from family friendly dinners to decadent desserts.
I get a lot of inspiration and ideas from food blogs, and I have a long list of favorites (too many to name). Over the years, I’ve made friends with many of the people behind those blogs, and it’s always nice when the person is as delightful in real life as she is on her page. But sometimes, I meet the blogger first–then find her site and realize what I’ve been missing! This past year, I had the pleasure of meeting these five women and discovering their blogs:
Simply Sissom: I met Bailey last year at Blog Brûlée and instantly liked her sweet and upbeat personality–then I checked out her blog. Wow! The mom of two has tons of ideas (like How to Make Your Own Whole Food Sprinkles), recipes that are truly family-friendly, and meal plans with shopping lists. Recipe I Want To Try: 3 Ingredient Sheet Pan Pork Chops with Harvest Veggies
Hip Foodie Mom: This blog has a really fun approach to fresh, seasonal food that totally matches Alice’s personality. She creates healthy weekly meal plans and posts recipes for meals, snacks, and desserts. Her Instagram account is a must-follow too! Recipe I Want To Try: Apple Donuts
Aggie’s Kitchen: Aggie is friendly and down to earth–just like her blog, which is all about simple, healthy food. She’s got lots of ideas for easy weeknight dinners, and I love her “Healthy Habit” series with inspiring, doable tips like weekly salad prep. Recipe I Want To Try: Butternut Squash Spinach Manicotti
Baking a Moment: I have a thing for baking, so I loved meeting Allie last year on a trip with Stemilt and hearing about her past work as a pastry chef. Then I got totally hooked on her blog. I’ve made many of her recipes, including multiple batches of her Cookies and Cream Peppermint Patties at the holidays, and they’ve all been hits. Recipe I Want To Try: Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Buttercream
Wholesome Dish: Amanda is a fellow registered dietitian, and I love how she describes her blog: “The recipes on my blog are a reflection of how I eat. Most of my recipes are healthy. Some of my recipes are not so healthy.” I also like that some of her recipes (like this Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff) come with short, helpful videos. Recipe I Want To Try: Pomegranate Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts
