Brought to our attention by Alanna Shaikh, the penniless parent is Penny, self described as: frugalista extraordinaire, tree hugging, real food eating, gluten free living, homeschooling, breastfeeding, co-sleeping, DIYer who loves the challenge of having an awesome life on a very limited budget! @pennlissparent
If you like mommy blogging mixed with food and activism with an emphasis on vegan South Asian fusion cooking, this blog's for you. In Kiran's own words: I’m influenced by my mom’s amazing, and far-reaching cooking repertoire, as well as the flavors I picked up in Bombay (where we lived when my twins were born) and New York City (we live in Queens right now). I also am interested in Southern cooking, as I grew up in South Carolina, so the occasional collard green or pimento cheese definitely sneaks into rotation from time to time! @BombayToQueens
Jean is a trained barrister who lived in South Africa all her life and then ten years ago, moved to London. She takes AWESOME photos and has great recipes on her website. Easy to search as well which is what I like about it. Also runs workshops etc with other food bloggers which look great. @CookSisterBlog
Sassy Radish is Olga Massov, a writer and a recipe tester/developer (and a Russian expat). She does this from Brooklyn, which is enough for me to be in love. If you are a newbie or hesitant cook, check out her site. She actually leads you through the process properly. I like looking at her site for inspiration from the photos. You can read more about her here. @SassyRadish
Kalyan Karmakar is finely chopped. I love reading his blog because it's part...musing. His post on Lucky Biryani in Bandra, Bombay had me drooling and remembering it as the way it was meant to be remembered. It's not just a celebration of food on his blog but of life. I also LOVE that he walks us around Bombay, my ancestral home and one I would love to live in one day. He can be found on twitter @FinelyChopped
One dish closer is Victoria Brown. Vicky comes from a cooking family and has amazing stories to accompany her amazing recipes. I like her organic way of cooking and the inspirations she uses. I know my first pork dish that I cook (other than bacon) will be one of her recipes. Her posts make me laugh out loud...well worth the visit to her blog! She doesn't tweet often, but when she does, it's from @onedishcloser
This is my go-to for food porn--gorgeous photos ALL THE TIME. A Kentish Kitchen is: a kitchen rooted firmly in its surroundings, my own heritage, the odd nod to nostalgia, and my ongoing fascination with the quirky and novel. You’ll find here not only the foods for which Kent is best known, but also some long-forgotten goodies and intriguing newcomers – from Garden through Kentish Kitchen to table. @akentishkitchen
Three blogs brought to our attention by Aid Source Foodie (and self proclaimed food blog addict) Laura Itzkowitz are her two favorites that she visits often and cooks from http://101cookbooks.com/ and http://smittenkitchen.com/. She also mentions (and we quote): another great site for food porn and links to a ton of blogs is http://www.tastespotting.com/. It has provided me with hours of distractions and introduced me to so many new-to-me and delicious food blogs. Thanks for these Laura!
