It’s that time again — Babble.com has just released the list of the year’s best food bloggers.
I just love food blogs — not just for the user-friendly recipes, but for the stories behind the food. It’s the people I love most. Getting to know the blogger from inside her kitchen. Learning the history of a dish — both in general and in the blogger’s own life. Trying a recipe with simple, down to earth instructions.
That’s why I’m thrilled to see the Top 100 Food Bloggers of 2012. It includes a few of my favorites, but the list is mostly new to me. I can’t wait to check them out.
You’ll find frugal food bloggers, allergy free food bloggers, inspiring recipes, kid-friendly recipes, and more. Here are a few highlights:
Katy She Cooks: Katy is from right here in Indianapolis. She’s one of my fellow Indy Geek Girls, passionate about food, and showcases allergy friendly recipes and organic cooking. I’ve learned a lot from her about produce shopping, healthy foods, and cooking techniques. Plus, she’s an absolute kick, and I adore hearing her southern accent in my own backyard.
365 Days of Slow Cooking: I’ve been reading Karen’s blog since her first year of crockpot cooking. I’m a big fan of slow cooking myself — not only is it a simple way to make low priced meats taste great, but it’s perfect for summer cooking so I can keep the oven off and my kitchen cool.
Kitchen Stewardship: One of the top budget-friendly food bloggers, Katie writes about real food on real budgets. She’s another Midwesterner I’ve met in real life, and I’m pleased to say she’s as sweet in person as she is on her blog. Katie has also written several e-books, including Healthy Snacks to Go and The Everything Beans Book to save money in the kitchen.
Gluten Free Girl: This one is new to me, but she was diagnosed with celiac disease around the same time we were so I’m looking forward to checking it out. Actually, it’s not so new to me. I just went to follow her on Twitter and realized I already do. It’s time to start paying more attention, so I can try some of her recipes for my girls.
