Pick Six: Favorite Food Bloggers

Saturday mornings. Nostalgia sets in as I remember the days when I used to watch Saturday morning cartoons at my grandma and grandpa's (hi, Grandma!) house. My sister and I would spend the night and stay up late eating and watching/shows on what seemed like a gazillion channels.  (They had satellite and we had basic cable.) Saturday morning was THE best because grandma would make pancakes or biscuits and gravy, or both, if that's what we wanted. She would extra-fry the bacon, to the point of almost black, which is just how I liked mine too. Then we'd watch cartoons. However, she always liked the "boy" cartoons like Transformers and X-Men. Don't get me wrong, I love them, now.

Flash forward to my life now. EVERY Saturday, starting in August, you will find ESPN's coverage of college football on in our house. I love football, but I love my husband more. From the moment he wakes up, he turns on football, and it makes me smile. Fortunately he isn't glued to the TV the entire day. He's missed watching many games so that we could go to a birthday party, or antiquing, or anything else I plan for us to do. But during the season, Saturdays are almost like a holiday for us; we celebrate our teams' wins, our rivals' losses, and the fact that we can literally watch football from dawn to dusk.

SO, in the spirit of College Football Saturday, I give you our first Pick Six.

Six of our favorite food blogs. This was really stinkin' hard to narrow down. I clearly have a love for food, and it's like these other women who love food share a part of my soul.

The women behind these blogs do some seriously amazing things. I tried to pick a few bloggers who are very popular, a few somewhat popular and one you may have never heard of. I hope you check them out and enjoy!

Eat It Kansas City: Shanley writes about restaurants in the Kansas City area, reviews food and shares some of her own recipes. She's cute and fun to follow. Her blog is also a great way to keep up on food happenin's in KC.

Sally's Baking Addiction: Baking is my favorite. Thus, Sally stole my heart. I love her fun photography and enthusiastic personality. She is a sprinkle lover, which means her blog is adorable.

Averie Cooks: Averie's recipes are very "everyday." They are delicious, and something you could easily  make. I've pinned many of her recipes for weeknight dinners, etc. Plus, she has a cookbook all about peanut butter. Uh, we were meant to be friends!

Damn Delicious: On this blog you will find "simple ingredients" and "elegant dishes." I'm always truly inspired by the recipes that Chungah puts together. She is creative and fun in the kitchen. Her recipes are also easy to create, which makes cooking them doable. My favorites are her Asian dishes.

Gimme Some Oven: First, the name is just so cute, and Ali really seems to be a genuine person. Her photography is stunning and full of vibrant colors, and her recipes are unique. She also shares personal and professional posts, which I really enjoy. What's even better? She's local!

Joy the Baker: Joy's photography skills are incredible. Just take a look at her blog and you will see. She is also a very talented baker, but it's her humor that I love most about her blog. The marketer in me really loves her branding too. It's so subtle, but present. You know it's Joy when you see a photo. Make sure you check out her podcasts too.
