Speaking of cooking, I subscribe to a growing number of cooking and baking blogs. Over the years, I've come to rely on some of them for their wonderful recipes and I want to share them with you (but only if you promise to leave me the names of your favorite food blogs!)
- Simply Recipes -- Elise's recipes are wonderful and have never failed me. She rarely calls for exotic ingredients and I have learned to look in her archives for a recipe before searching throughout the internets. Why she doesn't have a cookbook out yet, I do not know.
- The Pioneer Woman Cooks -- I was drawn in by the beautiful photography depicting ranching life on her main blog, but was quickly sucked into her cooking site. Her photography of each step in a recipe is fabulous and her commentary is always witty. And get this, she has a cookbook coming out in October called The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl.
- Bitten -- Mark Bittman's website. But haven't I already raved enough about him?
- David Lebovitz -- His blog, subtitled "living the sweet life in Paris", is always a good read. Not only are you guaranteed to learn something, but also come away craving some of his wonderful creations. I have and love his book Perfect Scoop and I'm dying to get my hands on his new book -- The Sweet Life in Paris.
