The Other Blogs

Books are nice, and so are magazines, but the web is packed with so much more. I am a big fun of some awesome blogs and I love to read. Here is a list of my top-top favorite. They all have been a great inspiration so far, and I highly recommend them. I will just let them describe them.

Cooking Issues –

A blog by a great contributor to science of food. Arnold is an award-winning food writer and contributing editor for equipment and food science at Food Arts, and he lectures around the country at universities and industry conferences. He has been featured in Food & WineTime, the New York Times, the New York Times MagazineEsquire, the Economist and Popular Science, among other publications.

They met in the kitchen at Clio in Boston in 1997 and have been cooking together ever since. Aki and Alex specialize in sharing techniques for creativity with chefs, cooks, restaurants, food service companies, and home cooks using modern ingredients, equipment, and innovative approaches to food. They emphasize an understanding of ingredients and cooking techniques (both classic and modern) in order to increase skill levels and refine individual cooking styles. They specialize in helping other chefs express their own cuisine more clearly and efficiently. In addition to their work with individual chefs and restaurants, they have consulted with companies such as the Art Institutes, the Institute of Culinary Education, Marks & Spencer, and Unilever.

The Pioneer Woman –

wtwetgfear534543ersdHowdy. I’m Ree Drummond, also known as The Pioneer Woman. I’m a moderately agoraphobic ranch wife and mother of four. Welcome to my frontier! I’m a middle child who grew up on the seventh fairway of a golf course in a corporate town. After high school, I thought my horizons needed broadening. I attended college in California, then got a job and wore black pumps to work every day. I ate sushi and treated myself to pedicures on a semi-regular basis. I even kissed James Garner in an elevator once. I loved him deeply, despite the fact that our relationship only lasted 47 seconds.Unexpectedly, during a brief stay in my hometown, I met and fell in love with a rugged cowboy. Now I live in the middle of nowhere on a working cattle ranch. My days are spent wrangling children, chipping dried manure from boots, washing jeans, and making gravy. I have no idea how I got here…but you know what? I love it. Don’t tell anyone! I hope you enjoy my website, Here, I write daily about my long transition from spoiled city girl to domestic country wife. In Confessions, I post photos of cows, horses, and my four weird children…as well as frequent shots of my husband wearing chaps. It’s a bad habit I have. I can’t be trusted with a camera.


Paleo Fondue –

Screen Shot 2014-06-08 at 8.47.40 PMPaleofondue is a great blog by a friend of mine describing paleo recipes. The photography is great! I have long been inspired by baking sites and many Paleo blogs, so wanted some sort of combination of two. The site started under the name “Sweet Potato Bun,” where I first intended to have a site dedicated to strict Paleo recipes and very unstrict cakes. Meaning gluten galore! Since then, I realized how much a toll gluten and some grains are problematic to me and far worse for many others. I love cake and love it even more without feeling like my head collapsed.

The name “Paleo Fondue” means gather at the table for plates of quality food, savor the natural flavors, and indulge in a little dessert! You can have cheese if you want…

At first I shied away from “Paleo” in my blog title. At the time I thought running a Paleo inspired blog meant abiding to a strict list of ingredients. But, lately I learned that living a Paleo lifestyle is not about checking off a finite list of ingredients (outside of challenges, like Whole30, 21DSD, or dietary restrictions), but rather to eat well, relax, and enjoy! So while I’m not perfectly Paleo, the recipes on Paleo Fondue are focused on real and nutritious foods with a little dessert.


Chocolate & Zucchini –


Chocolate & Zucchini is a blog written by Clotilde Dusoulier, a 24 25 26 27 28 29 30-year-old Parisian woman who lives in Montmartre and shares her passion for all things food-related — thoughts, recipes, musings, cookbook acquisitions, quirky ingredients, nifty tools, restaurant experiences, ideas, and inspirations. The blog was created in September of 2003 as an outlet for someone who feared her friends might tire of hearing about what she cooked/ate/baked/bought, though they didn’t seem to have a problem with being fed dinner. One thing led to another, a bit of media attention was received, articles were submitted to and published by newspapers and magazines, a book deal was signed, a day job was quit, and a new life as a full-time food writer began.


101 Cookbooks –

101cookbooks-mainlogoHi there, my name is Heidi Swanson. 101 Cookbooks is my recipe journal. It’s where I write about the recipes that intersect my life, travels, and everyday interests. Often the recipes are from my cookbook collection, sometimes not – they might come from a friend, or I might write about a recipe I created myself. I focus primarily on natural, whole foods and ingredients – vegetarian recipes that are good for you and for the planet. Welcome!
