What’s cooking my *blogships?

As with every week, last week was a good week for food focused chatter.

best food stuffs on the blogosphere for 022011-022711

It’s funny just how often the subject of food comes up in any given week. It’s even funnier how often friends give me knowing glances when I am around a conversation that has to do with food, it seems my craven reputation precedes me. The most interesting conversation I found recurring this past week was regarding cooking meals from scratch for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Working from home, I have the luxury to be able to do so. Every day a fresh brekkie, lunch and dinner { and pudding } are served with left overs lasting maybe a day or two at best. I like it that way, call me a control freak, but I like to know what goes into what I eat.

A friend of mine reckons that when I get married and have kids my penchant for cooking every day will quickly fade…I certainly hope not, it’s what my mum did, what her mum did and what I love and plan to keep doing. No fast food dinners in this house!!

A round up of some of the nicest food focused blog posts on some of my favourite blogs from the past week are as follows:

1. Dear golden featured some gorgeous pieces from the Suno collection. This specific dress reminded me of an apron; a really gorgeous-guests are coming over but i’m still in the kitchen and have to look polished – sorta apron. I know i’d wear it.

2. Kind Boutique may have just made my { and my vegan friends } week with this post about Rawtella. What’s Rawtella you ask? It contains only 3 organic ingredients: cocoa, hazelnut, and coconut sugar. I cannot wait to try this, and will be checking online for vendors asap!

3. Fabric of my life, shared the ‘two‘ project with us: two people, with two photographs, one post a week, one theme each month. The result is a diptych that is intriguing and often inevitably populated with food. Having just started in January, the project is in it’s infancy, but I for one will be keeping an eye on it.

4. Bedlam of Beefy – an amazing black kitchen that doesn’t allow itself to be defined solely by it’s shade. From an uber-glam reflective back-splash to an impressive art piece above the sink. It’s a space worth a second, third or more look!

5. Lucy at Design Files interviewed the inimitable Katie Quinn Davies. If you have looked at any food blogs in the past couple of years you will likely be familiar with Katie’s work. Her images have a vibrancy and quality that is insatiable and I get the impression she is the kind of person with whom you could quite easily shoot the breeze. Her story { and food pics } are amazing, so check out the interview! Well worth a read!
