As someone trying to give her blog legs and get it off the ground, I have a great appreciation for those who have accomplished this feat. I have a lot of work to do: acquire sponsors, new food props (yes, this is a thing), better photography equipment, redesign the site…. okay, I’m starting to get overwhelmed. I’m just going to stop right there.It’s not easy, especially in the food blog genre. You’re trying to entice people with imagery and the power of the written word. Ever tried making steamed brussel sprouts sound exciting? Not. Easy. So I wanted to share with you a handful of the lovely ladies I follow so that you can revel in the beauty that is each of their blogs and their unique, delectable creations. Let’s dive in!

Sally is completely adorable and relatable. She recently got married and her dog attended in formal attire, which obviously melted my heart. She seems like the type of person I could genuinely be friends with, and it would just be a bonus that she makes ridiculously delicious-looking food. She’s even sweet enough to include a series of posts about how to get your own food blog up and running – I’m taking your advice to heart, Sally – you’re kind of my idol. Just sayin’.

“What I’m wary of is: Excessively fussy foods and/or pretentious ingredients. I don’t do truffle oil, Himalayan pink salt at $10 per quarter-ounce or single-origin chocolate that can only be found through Posh Nosh-approved purveyors. I think food should be accessible, and am certain that you don’t need any of these things to cook fantastically.”
