Current food blog obsessions?

I'm always interested in what food blogs others are reading. So here's my top 5:

Chocolate and Zucchini
Gluten Free Girl
The Food Whore
David Lebovitz.

Who are you reading? Thanks!

      Oh yeh, yeh! If you would like to learn about Asian, Hawaiian, or even Mexican food, if you might be interested in San Diego restaurants (or some LA or Portland spots or even taco trucks in Yuma), or if you just like reading about food adventures and viewing food porn, Kirk's blog is outstanding.

        Also great for those obsessed with Asian cuisine is elmomonster's OC based blog:

          I second elmo's blog. His blog was instrumental in me starting mine and we recently got together for a meal. It was a real treat and I love his take on things.

            I'm late to this discussion, but I'd like to thank Phoo D and Seth for the shoutout.

            But of course, we can't talk about food blogs without mentioning Seth Chadwick's own superb "Feasting in Phoenix".


      1. Not sure about "obsessions" but of the 30-odd Asian-food related blogs I have links to on my website, here are five I currently have fun with:

        Hong Kong's "Cha Xiu Bao" is the best Chinese food blog I know of

        "Lily's Wai Sek Hong" is a great Asian Cooking DIY (who, me?) site

        "Chopstick Cinema" covers two of my passions in one integrated blog!

        Stef at "Noodles and Rice" maintains a world-view and a passion for Asian food in....
        Cincinnati OH! Oh?

        Since "Low End Theory" has moved back to Norte Califas, I'll give him a chance to make me love his blog

        1. I am so out of date, but maybe someone else is too! Another thread mentioned a recent(ish) book - the Julie/Julia Project that was based on a blog, and the general consensus was the blog was better than the book.

          So, I've been reading all the back entries of the blog (it's a lot of reading, but very humorous). It's kind of weird to read it so long after the fact, but I'm still enjoying it.

          Main page is here:

          Keep in mind that the writer was not too tech savvy, so there are no pictures (at least that I've seen yet) and about 75% of the links are broken either because they were done wrong, or the pages they linked to are since gone (since it's 4 years old now).

            I discovered the Julie/Julia blog about 3/4 of the way through her year. I had to go back and read every single one. It's wodnerful reading. I've also heard that the book isn't as good - that's why I'm waiting to get it from the library rather than buying it.

          2. i tend to follow blogs that do what i wish i could do... so mostly cooking based ones or those from other countries/cities. these are among my top few that often make my jaw drop and tongue wag.


            so... who else wants to buy a digital slr after all of this?
