I suppose I've been more of a blog reader than a blogger myself lately. I have a handful of blogs I like to read. Actually, it's more than a handful, and when I have the time, I catch up on them. They range in topics from design to politics to gardening to food to weight loss/healthy living to folks who just have lovely points of view I enjoy reading. The topics have ranged over the years, and many blogs have been unsubscribed from when they've lost their voice, moved to prioritizing making money or getting popular with their blogs, or have just disappeared.
But one that's stayed steady in her voice and in my blog reader, is Smitten Kitchen. It's my go-to blog for spot-on recipes with flavors well balanced, and while I may visit when searching for a great holiday meal recipe, she also doles out great salads and vegetable based meals as well. Her broccoli salad is one of my favorites during the summer.
It was wonderful to see her in person tonight while on her book tour. Alas, her books were already sold out at Powells so I couldn't buy one, and the room was hot and packed with admirers (see photo above for proof), but it was great to see her personality in life, not just on screen. I think I might like her even more now.
Here are some of my favorites from Smitten Kitchen:
Triple Berry Buttermilk Bundt Cake
Her recent farro and butternut squash salad
