My Tartelette

Kate’s blog boasts wonderful recipes and some of the most wonderful food-centric photography I’ve seen.

During the first few days of my diet I steered clear of food blogs lest they provoke a mad search for something sweet. But, now, I’ve seen the light. I have realized the value in a really fantastic food blog and it was all because of My Tartelette. Kate’s blog boasts wonderful recipes and some of the most wonderful food-centric photography I’ve seen. Because, as a dieter, what I need to remember is to savor and enjoy really wonderful food...and to stop standing in the kitchen eating sugar cereal out of the box.

One Hungry Mama

One Hungry Mama is a family friendly food blog that is filled to its bloggy gills with recipes, advice and information. I love that Stacie’s recipes and adaptations include recommended ages and in some cases, tips for how to make a recipe suitable for the developing digestive systems of babies. But make no mistake, this is a blog for all ages. One Hungry Mama had me at “Chocolate Chip Buttercream” and “Slow Cooker Apple Butter”. Yum!

White Lotus Cooks

Months ago, a friend treated me to homemade egg rolls. I haven’t stopped thinking about them since. Searching for a egg roll recipe (and the newfound knowledge that what I really wanted was a Spring Roll) led me to White Lotus Cooks, a delicious blog full of asian food, sweet treats, party ideas and family tid-bits.
