yum yums for your tum tums

I love food blogs.  While I first started following mommy blogs, I now follow more food blogs than anything else.  I also love to watch food shows, but we've discussed that before.

Today I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite sites that I like to pull dishes from or just look at as some seem to be a bit over my head.

First up, The Pioneer Woman Cooks. One of my absolute favs.  I love her step by step picture instructions. Not so much so that I can make sure that I'm doing it right, but because the pictures are gorgeous. They make me salivate. It's quite becoming of me. I cannot wait to salivate over PW's new cooking show starting August 27th. PW also has another food community site, Tasty Kitchen.

I found my favorite, go to cupcake recipe over at Our Best Bites.  Very basic, delicious recipes that don't require fresh herbs (I'm talking to you, Ina). They have a cookbook out, but I have yet to find it in a store in Ohio.
When I want to look at super complex, make me drool in front of my computer recipes I check out foodgawker and Taste Spotting.  These sites link to recipes by real cooks.  I've read here and there that it is rather hard to get published on their site, which just means they only chose the best.  I could (and do) look at these recipes for hours.  Good news, foodgawker now has an app!

If you're brand new to this blog, you may have no idea that I love cupcakes.  They are divine. Mini cakes that are just my size (since C's only a brownie guy).  Cupcakes Take The Cake is a blog that features cup cakes from all over the world.  They even feature links on the sidebar to every single cupcake store known to man.
Last but not least, I also love to see what the latest in cake or cookie decorating is over at i am baker. I wish to be as good as her someday.  I should probably take some classes or something. 

There you have it, my 7 go to food sites.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
