Whether it’s your first time browsing the food blogging scene or you’ve personally had homemade dinner with one of these amazing chefs (in which case, we need to talk), behind every blog is a pile–we’re talking truckload here–of inspiration. All of the following bloggers have played a huge role, unbeknownst to them or not, in shaping what you’ll find here at Wallflourgirl.
This list is still in progress, so feel free to drop your favorite blogs my way! I love mining the big wide ether for new blogger gems and will definitely check out any recommendations sent my way.
Averie Cooks: Talk about balancing a busy lifestyle with recipes that will simply warm your heart.
Christine’s Recipes: The best in the business for Asian and Westernized culinary goods.
Cookie + Kate: Any vegetarian cook’s paradise–Kate creates a wonderful, welcoming atmosphere that will keep you falling in love with her recipes with every visit.
How Sweet It Is: You couldn’t find a sweeter blog (or blogger!) if you tried–and believe me, I have. This one’s a keeper, folks!
Kitchen Riffs: This delightful writer welcomes you into his kitchen every time he sets pen to the page (or lens to the dish, as the case might be). Fantastic photography and kitchen stories to warm your heart.
Smitten Kitchen: Yet another blogging wonder, with wonderful recipes from all walks of life. She changes up the pace with her cooking so often, it’s hard to keep up–and worthwhile when you do!
Sweet 2 Eat: Lisa writes every post with a sweet dish gladly proffered–don’t miss this!
Top with Cinnamon: This gal pulls out all the stops with quirky gif’s, videos, and writing to accompany her show-stopping photos.
Willow Bird Baking: A great site with innovative confections and baked goods of all sorts. I’ve sort of fallen in love with the token picnic blanket that she uses in most of her gorgeous photography.
