A Few of Our Favorite Foodies

Are cookbooks obsolete? Some days it kind of feels like it! I’m not ready to get rid of all my cookbooks, but more often I’m turning to online resources when I’m looking for a recipe.Stack of Cookbooks

The internet is such a wonderful place. Fifteen years ago I wondered how I’d ever find my way around and stay safe on the World Wide Web, but today it’s become a virtual home. When we switched from our free WordPress blog to our own self-hosted domain, one thing we lost was our Blogroll page. It’s time to rebuild that page with old friends and new.

Want to be on our blogroll? Leave a link to your food blog in the comments and we’ll check it out. If you would be so kind as to link back to us, we’d sure appreciate it.


The following sites are Seriously Awesome Food Sites. I’m tickled to notice that we’ve been reading some of these sites since BEFORE they hit the big time!

  • The Pioneer Woman Cooks – Yep, before she was getting millions of page views and thousands of comments, we were reading what P-Dub wrote. She was hilarious back then too!
  • Pinch My Salt – I first started following Nicole when she lived in Italy. Her gorgeous food photos caught my attention and I was instantly a fan.
  • Southern Plate – this is a great resource for a transplant to the South!
  • Gluten-Free Goddess – Karina helps me serve my GF friends amazing food.
  • Simply Recipes – I love just about every recipe on this site!
  • Amanda and Merrill at Food52 – Fascinating food info and recipes

Good friends and their blogs:

I also have some friends who write about a lot of things and sometimes, usually weekly, feature food:

  • Teaching What is Good – Pretty much everything Kate writes about, I pay attention to.
  • Hearts in Service – Terri is endlessly creative and also sells and ships some of her products through her Etsy shop.
  • Chaos Cottage – I really love Pam’s weekly menus because I am seriously challenged in the area of menu-planning.

Still more foodblog favorites: some of these blogs have been our friends since the very beginning when we started My Sister’s Kitchen in 2006.

The following sites aren’t cooking or recipe blogs per se, but they all have to do with food or drink that makes a Foodie’s heart glad. Some of them sell products that they will ship to you if you aren’t local:


Handy sites with useful information:

I’m sure that Laura has more links she wants to add to this post and we’re always interested in hearing about your site or your favorite online place to visit when you’re looking for recipes. Do share! We’re always looking for new ideas to make us drool!
After a couple weeks, I plan to convert this post to a page so our blogroll will continue to be easy to find.
Grandma's old Pine Rest Cookbook

Yep, this is an old Pine Rest Cook Book. Anyone out there recognize this treasure?

  1. Yipee it worked! Thank you for choosing me as one of your favorites. I love you and your sister’s blog. We can’t ever have too many recipes!

  2. Not at all in the same league with you all, but I’ve love to have feedback and following for my little blog, frugalfastfun.blogspot.com/. Thanks for the opportunity.

    • Helen, I KNEW I was forgetting someone! I had you in the back of my mind and then…well…you slipped away. I’m putting you on our blogroll right now!
