Damn Delicious

This blog has a little bit of everything, ranging from slow cooker recipes to a delectable side dishes for a crowd. What makes this blog truly special is its Asian-inspired recipes. I made the Korean Beef Bowl dish last week and Oh. My. Word. It was awesome.

Glorious Treats

This blog is the mother ship for any baked goods fanatic. The pictures of the cupcakes alone make me drool every time I pull up this blog, and I cannot get enough of her spot-on decorating skills. If you’re looking for a baking blog that has a good mix of fancy-schmancy cakes and easy brownie recipes, this is the blog for you.

A Couple Cooks

A husband-wife duo dish out their favorite recipes using only whole foods. Don’t be intimidated if you’re unsure of your “healthy cooking” abilities. Maybe these recipes exclude refined foods, but they’re so simple to make and are perfect for college cooks looking to expand their healthy eating horizons. The best part about this blog? The creators are based in Indianapolis.

Cookie + Kate

As the name would suggest, this blog is run by Kate with the help of her dog Cookie. This is a must-follow blog for vegetarians and whole-foods enthusiasts alike. There’s also a tab for special dietary needs, including the more common gluten free options and the lesser known tomato and soy free recipes. I feel I should also mention that Cookie + Kate has some of the best food photos around, so for the food porn aspect alone makes this blog a win in my book.

Food Gawker

This blog is literally Pinterest on crack, but instead of all the home décor pictures cluttering your screen, Food Gawker is dedicated solely to recipes. Although this isn’t a food blog in the typical sense, it’s perfect for those of you not wanting to wait for a new recipe to be uploaded each week. With hundreds of recipes to scroll through, you’re sure to find something that catches your eye. Or, if you’re like me, you’ll end up having to make a page-long list of all the foods you want to try (which is arguably to the best problem you could ever have).

Check these sites out, and don’t forget to take pictures of your creations using the hashtag #spoonfeed and #IspoonU.

The 5 Vegetarian Blogs I Read Every Day

Finding delicious, wholesome vegetarian food is not always easy when you’re eating out at a restaurant, but it’s totally possible when you make it at home. Since giving up meat six years ago, I’ve relied on a myriad of sources — like cookbooks, blogs, and our own recipe page — to help keep my meals interesting and satisfying. Blogs in particular are great resources, as they’re constantly updated with new recipes. Not only do these new recipes keep things exciting, but they also reflect what’s happening right now, which helps me cook with the seasons.

If you’re new to vegetarian cooking or just want to peruse some beautiful sites, here are the five vegetarian blogs I turn to again and again for endless inspiration and ideas.

1. With Food and Love

To me, being a vegetarian means celebrating all the food I can eat and not focusing on the things I no longer eat. Sherrie’s blog perfectly captures this ethos. Her recipes, like the creamy risotto with roasted spring vegetables pictured above, put fresh, in-season produce front and center. The stunning photos draw me in, but her vibrant, flavorful food is what keeps me coming back.

2. Naturally Ella

You might recognize Erin as one of our contributors, but if not, I highly suggest you get to know her and her wonderful blog. Erin’s recipes are great for new vegetarians (or people who are trying to incorporate more plant-based meals into their routine), as she covers the basic building blocks of this style of cooking. She also has plenty of inventive recipes like the spiced sweet potato skewers with cilantro yogurt sauce pictured above.

3. 101 Cookbooks

It wouldn’t be a vegetarian blog roundup without 101 Cookbooks. Heidi’s blog is one of the first I obsessively followed when I made the switch to a meat-free diet, and I’ve trusted her to guide me to delicious dishes ever since. The most notable trick I learned from her is to upgrade simple meals, like the asparagus soup pictured above, with some fancy garnishes. Things like chive flowers, toasted marcona almonds, and lemon-ginger-rosemary butter make everyday recipes feel a bit more luxurious and special.

4. Cookie and Kate

When cooking for non-vegetarian friends and family members, I often choose a recipe from Cookie and Kate. Without fail, her dishes always surprise and delight even the most skeptical carnivore. Case in point? I recently made her lentil baked ziti (pictured above), and it was a huge hit. No one missed the meat, and everyone asked for seconds.

5. Green Kitchen Stories

A misconception around vegetarian cooking is that it’s not for people with busy lifestyles who don’t have a lot of time to devote to cooking everything from scratch. David and Luise, the husband-and-wife team behind Green Kitchen Stories, prove this line of thinking wrong. (They have three kids to look after, so they know a thing or two about making healthy food on a hectic schedule). I’ve had great luck lately with their mint chocolate power bars and the berry & tahini smoothie pictured above.
