Swoon Worthy

Sweet and savory to make you feel faint with hunger – these are the food, photography and style blogs that I positively swoon over. I am constantly craving more eye candy, and if you are too, click away.

Joy the Baker – Don’t we all wish we could be BFFs with Joy? She’s so down-to-earth. If you haven’t gotten a chance to check out her podcast over at Homefries, she and Tracy from shutterbean are worth a listen.

A Beautiful Mess – Posting nearly every day on topics from useful, cute DIY crafts to comforting food to eye-popping vintage fashion, Elsie’s tone is personable and her posts are irresistible.

Nicole is Better – To the point, funny, with writing that certainly lives up to her blog’s motto – life less bullshit. She kicks ass and inspires you to do the same. This is one of the few blogs I read without any photos and I can tell you it’s worth it.

Roost – Can you say girl crush? Not only is Coco of Roost positively darling, her photos and fresh food styling are to die for. (I also follow her on Pinterest and she has amazing taste)

shutterbean – Can I be cliché for minute? Following Tracy on her blog is like running into an old friend after so many years. If I could, I’d love to swap stories in her kitchen over some Moscow Mules.

The Bloggess – The epitome of weird and amazing and the first person I’d want on my team in case of a zombie apocalypse.

Pioneer Woman – A list of blog, food and photography inspiration wouldn’t be complete without Ree. I’m certainly no ranch mother of four, but she brings you right into her kitchen and she lands straight into your heart.

Simply Stardust – Originally dubbed “photo nimbus,” Sara’s blog has lovely pictures that vignette a quiet albeit appealing life. What’s not to love about her orange hair and cute shoes, not to mention her three orange kitties.

spoon fork bacon – I could click through these pages for days, merely to ogle the mouth-watering options from this food stylist and photographer pair. Eye catching blog design too, truly making it the whole package.

Tartlette – I just came across this one because I’m excited to read Helene Dujardin’s book Plate to Pixel. Bright and gorgeous photos – and the same goes with her blog design.

Not Without Salt – This blog has plenty of flavor – dreamy photos of diverse and tasty food options. She even made salt from scratch!

Running With Tweezers – Tag-lined “tales from the front lines of food,” RWT features bright colorful food and a bold print blog design.

V.K. Reese Photography – Professional photographer with a knack for food. I just found this blog and I can’t stay away from pictures. She follows the end of every post with a photo of her cat.

Cannelle et Vanille – All things sweet – fresh food and fresh photos. Simply lovely.

gourmande in the kitchen – Photos that will make you wish you could reach right into the screen to grab the culinary delights.

Boulder Locavore – Locals have to stick together, right? This Colorado native showcases delicious local and seasonal recipes, as well as the next places to visit around Boulder and surrounding areas.

3191 Miles Apart – I imagine that living 1,081 miles away my best friend and I could have a blog just like this. It’s cozy – homey crafts and sweet sentiments.

whole family fare – Just as the name says. This blog is as wholesome as it gets, nourishing to your soul and equally so to your stomach.
