Food Bloggers

I’ve been noticing more and more food blogs out there in the Web sphere. Here are a few of my favorites:

Bread & Honey.


Bread & Honey is a cute, rustic type of blog that features food recipes with beautiful high-quality photos. It used to have two full-time authors, Summer and Alicia, however, it looks like Summer has moved on to different things. Great archive to dig through.



Foodess is one of the newest blogs out there that I’ve been following. The blog incorporates wonderful use of the latest web design trends (minus a favicon. okay, okay, I may be biased) and also features beautiful recipes with cook-as-you-go photography; always an added bonus. Side note: it appears that the awesome agency behind the design of this site is Pallian Creative of New York City.



This foodie blog site is called “JMUeats” and features posts by some gals from my alma mater, JMU. I love what they are cooking up — only wish this was around while I was a student! Keep it up girls and go DUKES! 😉

    The Pioneer Woman Cooks! She has great, basic recipes and takes a photo at each step of the recipe. I had *no* idea how to cook, and PW has given me the confidence to get cooking. It’s been great- plus she’s funny and a very talented photographer in addition to cook.

    Definintely give her Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Thingies, Delicious, Creamy Mashed Potatoes, and Marlboro Man’s Favorite Sandwich a try, just to get started. 😉

    You are welcome 😉

    Ooh–and—- this one is for cakes, but you simply won’t believe what this creative lady can do with fondant.

    OK just one more- this one is fancy schmancy, and what I might aspire to be one day. Ok, who I am I kidding. But it’s fun to look at and read– haute cuisine for sure.

    I have several favorite must-read food blogs: A chef in Ohio provides recipes and tips of a wide variety of cuisines, including Asian, Indian, and traditional Appalachian. DC-area cook started an online site to store her own recipes, and was shocked when some people started commenting. She now runs a great monthly blog event called Grow Your Own. Baltimore cook who features only original recipes she’s come up with.

    Have you heard about this one?

    It is REALLY REALLY interesting. A couple attempts to live on $1 a day (each) for a whole month. It is really cool to see what they learn about themselves and their relationship with food. Read it backwards for the full effect.

    @DeinD.C. and @Amanda, thank you so much for your recommendations. It looks like I will have hours of fun reading these 🙂

    Hey there – just wanted to say thanks for mentioning JMUEats on your blog! While we are just getting started, we are all really excited to be a part of this blog. What year did you graduate from JMU?

    Another great food blog to check out is – its one of my favorites!

    Hi this is Jenny from JMUeats and I just wanted to thank you for mentioning our blog! We love checking out your site and we’ve added you to our blogroll. If you have any ideas or suggestions for food/drink ideas in Harrisonburg (being a former duke yourself) definitely let use know 🙂

    @chelsea I graduated not too long ago in May of ’08. I’m heading down to JMU this weekend for my second visit, since I graduated (It’s been wayyy too long).

    @jenny Thanks for adding me to your JMUeats blogroll, I’ll have to do the same! By the way, my favorite Mexican place in Harrisonburg seems to be one that many people didn’t know about when I was there: Jalisco. It’s in the same shopping center as Ceasar’s. Ask for Norberto, he’s awesome.

  11. 11 Jenny February 25, 2009 at 4:22 pm

    We will definitely have to check out Jalisco. Someone suggested we search for the best margarita in town so we’ll have to see how theirs are! Hope you enjoy your visit to JMU this weekend!

    Thanks Emily! Let me know if I can be of any assistance in the future.
