1. Tongue Ticklers: Also run by someone who juggles foodblogging and a day job, this site has incredible vegan recipes with some mindblowing food photography. There are lots of Indian food blogs out there but very few with this level of aesthetic polish.
2. Sugar and Charm: An old favourite, I’ve been following Eden Passante and her beautiful family’s adventures in California for over 3 years now. A very pretty, very pleasant, very feminine blog filled with design inspiration, photographs and mouthwatering dessert recipes.
3. M Loves M: Mara puts together some really charming outfits, simple recipes along with some great photos on this simple but elegant blog.
4. Passionate About Baking: Another Indian blog and this one has some hardcore, over the top desserts! Delightful to look at but a little intimidating to try, a lot of these recipes are on my ambitious to do list.
5. Sinfully Spicy: I realize I gravitate towards girly, dessert blogs and since we can’t survive on cookies and cobblers alone, I’m going to end with this blog that has some seriously delicious savoury dishes.
One thing all these blogs have in common is the superlative food photography, I wish I could intern with one of them to figure out how they do it! These are of course just 5 out of the hundreds of food blogs out there and maybe I can make this into a more regular series where I get you more lovely links.
The only problem with the world wide web is that it stretches so far and while I’d like to send each of these talented blog owners a batch of these decadent chocolate cookies with gooey chocolate filling, I can’t. I made these for a lunch my parents threw and realized that you never grow out of the desire for a crumbly, chocolaty, overload. Or at least my parent’s friends haven’t. And I haven’t either. These are their own reward.
Adapted from Good Food magazineWhat you’ll need:
2 tbsp butter
¼ cup sugar
¾ cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
About a cup of NutellaHow to:
Try to work the Nutella in the best you can, the more you can fit in, the better the cookie will be. Don’t worry about getting the shape perfect. I started out trying to make a dimsum sort of shape but I wasn’t able to work that one out so I picked this half moon instead. Eventually I’d manipulate the half moon into a sort of circle but you can see the cookies aren’t perfectly round even in the end.
