Taking a short break from recipe posts, I've decided - with the opportunity of the new year - to mention 10 food bloggers that I would recommend following in 2010. They all have something different to offer, so I've listed them in alphabetical order.
A popular blog which in its simple layout includes some astounding recipes.
A Chef's Daughter
The authors of this blog - Ivette and Elissa - are daughters of a professional chef (as you may have guessed from the name of the blog!) and the family influence shows in the recipes here.
AZ Cookbook - Food from Azerbaijan
A beautifully presented blog with recipes from a country whose cuisine is not so well-known internationally as perhaps it should be. Excellent photos.
Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice
If you're into comfort foods, then this is the blog for you! Loads of recipes, clearly presented, that make you go Mmmm! Yes!
Kathy Maister's Start Cooking Blog
This award-winning blog not only has recipes, but also aims to show people who have never got around to it the basics of cooking. Nice, clear site which also includes videos.
I'm very fond of Portugal and I find the local recipes simply and clearly presented here.
As you may gather from the name of the blog, Savory Tv has recipe videos. These are of gourmet chefs from around the world and you can watch and try them out for yourselves at home.
The title says "Easy To Cook Pic By Pic" and that's what this blog does - it shows you with beautifully taken photos the stages in preparing these Spanish recipes.
Stir, Laugh, Repeat
Martha Cheves, the author of this blog, has also published a book of recipes with the same name as the blog - Stir, Laugh, Repeat. Great recipes and great attitude - Finding Joy While Playing In The Kitchen
A vegetarian blog which includes not only recipes, but interesting articles and restaurant reviews.
