I love cooking. But what I love isn’t getting experimental in the kitchen, it’s finding a great recipe that I trust. After all, if I’m buying the ingredients and spending the time, I want it to work! That’s why I love discovering the best blogs for food. I love finding food blogs that I can go back to time and time again for amazing recipes and new ideas.

Whether you want a vegan food blog, a food blog for moms, or just a great all-rounder, this is my roundup list of the best food blogs for you to check out. These are my personal favorites- the ones I really love, so I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!


Best Blogs for Food

Pinch of Yum- I got lost in Pinch of Yum’s collection of recipes. The photos are incredible, the instructions are easy, and the results are delicious! The best thing about this food blog is that all the recipes fit perfectly into your working week. There are lots of options for 30 minute meals, and also loads of vegetarian choices- definitely one to check out!

Not Without Salt- this is an award winning blog with beautiful recipes and stunning photography. It will inspire you to see your kitchen as a place to become creative and productive, and to enjoy the process of cooking and baking real, good food.

Yum Some- with easy to prepare recipes from around the world, Yum Some is the perfect food blog for anyone who loves to travel (or to at least travel with your palate!) For me, eating new food is one of the things I enjoy most about travelling, so I love how this blog brings together the best international recipes that can be re-created from pantry ingredients!

Minimalist Baker- I’ll start with a disclosure that while this is one of my favorite food blogs for vegan and vegetarian food (they have lots of amazing vegan and vegetarian recipes), the website is not exclusively for plant-based food. However, the best thing about this site is that the recipes are amazing but simple. The focus is recipes that require 10 ingredients or less, 1 bowl, or 30 minute or less to prepare.

Love and Zest- for a stylish food blog packed with beautifully photographed food, look no further. It’s packed with healthy recipes and nutrition tips that are manageable for a busy schedule.

Smitten Kitchen- this is a massive collection of recipes for every occasion with the strap-line, ‘fearless cooking from a tiny kitchen in New York City.’ It’s got cookery books and videos, too, and is well worth checking out for some new and craetive cooking ideas.

The Wonky Spatula- a food blog from my own home country, The Wonky Spatula teaches people how to feed themselves healthy, wholesome and nutritious food. From Festive Favs to Hen Essentials, this food blog goes beyond the normal meal options to give a huge amount of variety to your cooking.

Love and Lemons- this blog is all about seasonal fruit and veg featured in recipes that are accessible and exciting. Not all are vegan, but all recipes taste amazing. This is a great resource for when you need to impress a meat-eater with a non-meat meal. There are also lots of options for gluten-free recipes.

Cookie and Kate- this is a really well rounded blog with fresh, vegetarian recipes that focus on whole foods (foods that are as close to their source as possible). This blog makes it so easy to choose from a wide range of recipes for each meal, and to create delicious, real sustainable meals.

Simple Vegan Blog- this blog is just what it says on the tin, and is a wealth of nutritious and really tasty vegan recipes. Most of the recipes are also gluten-free. I also love the ‘how to’ guides for things like making coconut flour or coconut milk. This is the kind of food blog to get you so excited about vegan food!

Exceedingly Vegan- if you need convincing that vegan food is not boring or difficult to prepare, then this is the blog for you! There is a massive range of vegan recipes, covering every meal with great options for entertaining, also. This is vegan food that you’ll want to share.

The Minimalist Vegan- this is a blog all about minimalism, veganism, sustainable living, and even mindfulness. There are nine categories of vegan recipes, and all are made with everyday ingredients to fit into your real life. For me, food undoubtedly brings communities together, and if you are looking for support and ideas not just with vegan recipes, but with your whole lifestyle, then this could be the perfect food blog for you!

Healthy Living James- if you want a food blog that supports you to take healthy eating to a new level, then this could be it. Created by a qualified Health Coach, the recipes are free from gluten, wheat, dairy, eggs and refined sugar, as well as being mostly vegan/ plant-based. And the good news? There are lots of ‘simple’ or 15-minute recipes so eating well doesn’t have to be complicated!

Deliciously Ella- I love this blog’s motto to ‘make vegetables cool.’ Although it started as a personal blog, it’s now evolved to include an app, recipe books, a deli, and a range of plant-based food products so it’s an incredibly well rounded resource to help you create and enjoy plant-based food.

My Fussy Eater- this is one of the best food blogs for parents and families as it sets out to share new ways of making food fun and interesting for kids. The recipes are tailored for fussy eaters, and there are lots of tips for dealing with a fussy eater, too! If you are a parent with a fussy eater, then this blog could be your lifeline!
