Blogs

 I’m off on hols for a couple of weeks so thought i’d leave you with some foodie websites/blogs of interest in my absence… 😉

pin an awful lot of recipes from various places on the internet and sometimes make an interesting blog discovery through those.
Here are a few I think are worth a look:

He Needs Food is a food and travel blog by an Australian, I originally found the blog whilst looking up photo’s of Vietnam – he has taken some great ones! I pretty much used his posts on Vietnam as my culinary guide when we were in the country 🙂 He has some interesting recipes too though.

Lavender and Lovage is a website I found when trying out the 5:2 diet, the three recipes above are all low in calories but delicious! If you still want to eat interesting food on a diet then this is the website for you. It’s not all diet recipes however, there are all sorts of lovely sounding recipes to try out.

Not Without Salt is a blog I found whilst perusing pinterest for rhubarb recipes (my first post was inspired by a recipe from this blog!). I love the photography and interesting mix of recipes, and the fact there are quite a few drink recipes also. Worth checking out!

Some other blogs/websites that have good food sections

A Beautiful Mess – Needs no introduction but as well as all the inspiring DIY ideas there are also lots of food and drink recipes (mostly vegetarian).

Sheer Luxe – A lifestyle website with great fashion and beauty tips, but also a really interesting selection of recipes – I think I’ve pinned most of the ones on their website!

The Critical Couple – No recipes here, but if you’ve ever wondered about what it’s like to eat in all the top restaurants in the world (who hasn’t!) then read these reviews and look at the pictures, and drool…

Red Online – Red Magazine has interesting recipes every month, and helpfully, they’re pretty much all archived on their website 🙂

BBC Good Food – Last but not least, an old friend of mine! BBC Good Food website always delivers the goods –  if I’ve lost inspiration, or feel like cooking something but don’t have a recipe, this is the website I turn to first.

I also have a trusty arsenal of recipe books that I will have to do a separate post on at a later date!

If anyone has any tips on good blogs, let me know.

Happy Reading!
