Truth be told, I don't cook often, but if I'm going to cook, I want it to be spectacular. So we scoured food blogs today to find the absolute top 5 food blogs you should check out. Find your 2016 Super Bowl appetizers, cocktail drinks, ethnic cuisine, and even home-cooked, simple meals all right here. These top 5 food blogs cover it all, including the Easy Creamy Chicken Enchilada Soup pictured above. We would've made this a top 10 list, but we're suddenly very, very hungry.
1. Serious Eats
Started in 2006, this self-described "Destination for Delicious" blog seriously has everything you could possibly imagine, from Super Bowl party dips to an impressive cocktail menu. If you can't find something here that makes you want to drop everything and start cooking, you're not looking hard enough. We honestly had to pull ourselves away, because with a collection dating back 10 years you could easily spend forever on this blog and never catch up. However, we did find this glorious recipe for Slow-Cooker Sticky Thai Meatballs (pictured below), so we consider today's search a complete success.
Started in 2007 by a fellow red-headed middle-child? Well obviously, this blog has to be awesome :D This blog has several features, including a regular trivia contest, products, an eponymous cookbook, but is focused mainly on her transition from "city girl" to "domestic country wife", featuring "Cowgirl" recipes, such as this incredible Spicy Cauliflower Stir-Fry.
Described as "a personal family food blog devoted to home cooking", this blog, dating back to 2003, allows you to search by cuisine as well as food type for those with dietary restrictions. With a focus on family meals and home cooking, we like that you can also search by season, including this winter dish of family comfort food, Chicken and Dumplings.
Be sure to note the .net and not .com on this blog, or you'll wind up at a UK online butcher shop. Featured on The Huffington Post, the Today Show, and Better Homes & Gardens, just to name a few, this blog has gained serious press traction in it's 5 short years for someone who has no formal food training. Most recipes are quick and easy, in 30 minutes or less, with an emphasis on Asian flavors, such as this awesome recipe for Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies we can't wait to try!
Not the catchiest of names, but we are sooo ecstatic for this blog! Indian cuisine is one of my personal favorites and generally not very accessible or affordable compared with other types. The fact that this is the "most popular indian recipe website in India" makes us even more excited to try these out. Being a vegetarian blog is an added bonus: it's touted as "the most popular vegetarian recipe website in the world" but recipes can easily be altered with addition of meat wherever you so choose. We're already dreaming about the curries and dals, and are happy that they even include beverage recipes, like this herbal tea.
