Other not-to-miss food related sites
I am new to the whole "internet food site" thing. Ive only recently found chow, as well as a couple neat food blogs. However, I have found them to be quite fantastic. Does anyone have any cool ones for me to check out? "Crafty" type ones would also be cool :)
Drop by my place occasionally -- I'm a professional food writer, cookbook editor and equipment tester for one of the big food magazines, and I have contests and giveaways. You could win something -- I have one coming up in late August to win some grilling equipment.
I adore the chat boards on Recipezaar, if youre' looking for community. Love cookingforengineers.com, workingwomanfood.com (she cooks from a lot of community cookbooks), and cupcakebakeshop.com -- the photography is eye-popping. I also read ideasinfood, because it's so strange. And I visit coldmud.com every few days, which aggregates a whole lot of food content from online media including American and British newspapers and magazines, plus blogs and websites. It's a terrible name, coldmud, but I assume they named it on purpose. Have fun in the new food world.
also go here, e.g., http://aidanbrooks.blogspot.com/
and look on the right side (scroll down a ways) and see where he links food sites and blogs he likes. this is a good way to explore.....
