Hey, Good Lookin', What Ya Got Cookin'?

Recently, a fellow blogger asked me which were my favorite food blogs.  There are a few that I turn to fairly often for inspiration, but usually my search technique is to get a craving, "google" it to death only to not find exactly what I'm looking for, then put my own spin on it (usually due to the fact that I don't have all the ingredients, but am too lazy to run to the store).  Ahem.

So, in no particular order...

The Southern Lady Cooks, it's Southern.  It's good.

Cajun Delights; visit Marguerite for authentic Louisiana cookin'

Bona Fide Farm Food, it's bona fide. 

Chef Rick's Southern Cooking, he doesn't post often, but his archive is packed full of must have recipes.  He also has a blog, Hushpuppy Nation, that is chock full of southern food history.


Ms. Enplace, another Louisiana sweetie

and lastly, Designs by Gollum has a fun recipe swap she calls Foodie Friday.  You can scroll through tons of food blogs that link up to her page.  Let your eyes lead the way.

These are all fun blogs, but I don't always stick to blogs.  I love my recipe books and websites.  My favorite recipe books are your local ones...Jr. League books, Women's club, churches, and the like.  The recipes are things that are homey and the ingredients are all ones you've heard of and can find in your grocery store.  Here are a few good websites to bookmark.

Food Timeline, good for food history if you're into that sort of thing

I love Junior Leauge cookbooks too.
And I am honored (shocked) to be included on a list with such biggies. Thank you.

@ Happier...All this and I still find myself saying, "I don't know what to make for dinner!"

@ MM- Aren't they the best cookbooks. My River Road Recipes book is a food bible.

@ Stephen- Anything for a friend. If nothing else, for now, you can rest while combing thru yummy food images : )
