Best Food and Recipe Blog of 2014

For the last five years, Saveur Magazine has published their Best Food Blog Awards, which I find incredibly interesting! The 2014 food blog of the year is i am a food blog, and I’ve had a lot of fun exploring Stephanie’s recipes, amazing photography, and sense of simplicity and great taste when it comes to food.

Recent recipes posted include Creamy Stovetop Jalapeno Mac & Cheese, Gluten-free Lemon Loaf, Holiday Quinoa, and Mini Sriracha Chicken Pot Pies. I love that there is a brunch recipe every week (oh how I love brunch!) and Stephanie’s “Friday Links” include fun and silly stuff from around the interwebs, as well as links to great recipes and anything beautiful and food-related.

I noticed that everything on this blog is yummy, but fairly easy – even her recipe for Chicken Pho (which usually intimidates me) came across as very do-able, with an ingredient list that wasn’t overwhelming.

It has been a big year for i am a food blog, as they also published a cookbook! I’ve got Easy Gourmet on order, and will share some of my recipe explorations when I get it!

It really is fun to see what everyone else in the food world is doing, and it inspires me to do more experimental cooking to share with you!
