  1. A couple I follow on Facebook:

    Best Southern Recipes from the Deep South

    Homesick Texan

    Sorry, on iPhone, so you'll have to Google them.

    1. Also through facebook, I follow Palestine Food (http://www.facebook.com/Palestinefood) - but seaonally speaking, it probably won't sync with North American growing seasons.

        I just took a look at the Palestine Food page. Looks great. Thanks!

        1. re: debbiel

          They also link a lot to this website/blog (http://www.kitchenofpalestine.com) that is good with slightly fuller recipes. I recently made their mujadarra with bulgar which was excellent, and I've had friends who've had success with their labne recipe.

            Doesn't this pie look interesting! Thank you for the site link!

              Personally, I can't stand nigella seeds - but I do love how they have less common recipes among the standards. It's relatively knew, but I do hope that they keep it up.

              1. re: cresyd

                Oh I see. I love nigella seeds added to popovers, bread and pizza. Is it the seed or the taste that you can't stand? Before I knew what a nigella seed was I was using onion bits instead.

          1. re: Gio

            Gio, with Slater and Ottolenghi, do they have actual blogs or are you referring to their newspaper columns?

            I really love Serious Eats Cook the Book. Also, I love how their recipes zip right into pepperplate.

            1. re: The Dairy Queen

              Oh, you know you're right, TDQ... Nigel is through the Guardian RSS feed... but Ottolenghi does have a blog.

              http://www.ottolenghi.co.uk/

                Then you both must have seen this recipe. My gf made the dough recipe while I worked the fig and cheese filling and it was "almost" too delicious to share!....but of course, we did! We had a brunch for our pals and this recipe was the winner that day.

                1. re: HillJ

                  I have NOT seen that but, wow! does that ever sound amazing. I mean, WOW! I almost want to get up from my desk and head home and make that right now.

                  Hillj, I didn't realize you provided photography for blogs. I realize the site rules would prohibit you from linking to any of your work in this thread, but is there a link you could put in your profile so we could have a look?

                  ~TDQ

                  1. re: The Dairy Queen

                    I know that recipe is something very special. Come fig season, I'll be finding a reason to make it with Kara again!

                    Yes, I make a point of never posting blogs I've worked on, on CH.

                    You can take a gander at some examples of my work at, Houzz.com
                    http://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/Kitche...

                    1. re: HillJ

                      So all of those photos are yours, even though there are multiple designers? You photograph all of those designers?

                      1. re: The Dairy Queen

                        Oh no not at all!! Only in my photo dreams could I pull off a portfolio of this size.

                        No, I house some of my more detailed kitchen work in this large archive along with my colleagues and some immediate contracted work. Houzz is full of inspiring work by hundreds of professional people; as well as homeowners who use the photography as a work station for redesign projects.

                        1. re: HillJ

                          Oh! Ok, I was pretty floored that you could do all of that AND 59 other blogs, too! Is there a way to tell which ones are yours or are they all kind of mixed in.

                          ~TDQ

                          1. re: The Dairy Queen

                            Total jumble each and every day; that's how the site owners like it but when I finish my current project, I'll consider posting a link to my CH personal profile.

                            One of my favorites in the field is this guy:
                            http://theselby.com/galleries/special...

                            1. re: HillJ

                              That would be cool, thank you. In the meantime, I see a lot of very inspiring photos on that site, and shall assume at least some of them are yours. :)

                              1. re: The Dairy Queen

                                I know I'm being vague. I do apologize.

                                1. re: HillJ

                                  No worries at all. I understand the balancing act.

                              2. re: HillJ

                                Ok, those Selby photos are amazing. I love the one of Selby himself in the purple denim jeans and blue cat t-shirt.

                                How do you find the time to work for 60 blogs? If they all publish even once a week, that's at least 60 places you have to run over to with your camera. Some of them must be more intermittent than weekly, I'm guessing?

                                1. re: The Dairy Queen

                                  Actually its much easier thanks to digital and e deadlines. Some jobs are location shoots planned around a long established deadline with clients who trek me in; others are studio shots created for print ads in which my part is only one part of the entire job; others are in my own studio (food and product shots mostly) and many are archived shoots I've taken months in advance of needing them. I also work in miniature photography six times a year at another studio. Really depends on the job. The new and interesting blog format has been a joy.

                                    If you want to hear a bit about Todd's process, there are two podcasts on the link above.

                                    1. re: HillJ

                                      Fascinating, thank you. What is miniature photography?

                    2. re: Gio

                      But, that's the restaurant's blog, right, not necessarily Ottolenghi himself? I imagine that sounds like splitting hairs, but I'm just curious.

                      ~TDQ

                  2. re: Gio

                    I forgot about Aglio - I enjoy her recipes. And I am off to check out your other Italian and Spanish blogs.

                  3. Rasa Malaysia is hands down my favorite.
                    I don't really follow other ones specifically, but look through quite a few when I google a certain recipe.
