Thanks for all of these suggestions. I just added a slew to my blog links (Blogquat).

I thought I would give and not just take :wink:

I think Verjuice's has the highest potential for being a meaningful, artistic food blog. Read back to the beginning to get the full extent - she has been busy lately.

Fanny the Fairy's blog is the one that is most likely to make me smile. I love her artistry and the effort she puts into the blog.

Jumanggy's blog is the first one I read every day. He diverges from food, but it is his combining of food and life that make it interesting to me.

FX Cuisine is the blog that I aspire to.

I know she has mentioned it here before, but I love reading Abra's French Letters. I think her time in France will be coming to an end in a few months, but I hope she continues writing after she moves back to the US. Her writing and photography are really wonderful.

Wholeheartedly agree. French Letters is one of the 10 or so blogs I quickly check every morning. When I see a new post I get happy and if I am in a hurry I often "save it for later" as a treat. I thought she was staying longer in France though- I hope so!

Is she? I thought it was only going to be for one year, but longer is better! More beautiful writing!

I just went through my linked blogs on my own blog and half are dormant! As I clicked other linked blogs, they're stagnant too. I guess that's a lot of busy people. So, my favorite blog is anyone that stays active...like mine :rolleyes:

There's always time for drooling over the 'how the hell did they do that' food of the best restaurants (see the ulterior epicure for a great example), but what I love most about food blogs is the sharing. From the most to the least experienced bloggers, it's all people who love food telling you how much they love food, and how to make the food they love most. It's great!

Lucy's Kitchen Notebook is definitely of my favourites. Great writing, beautiful photography, and delicious food. In the best possible way her blog makes me think enviously, "I want to live like that".

So for three summers, I've worked for an heirloom fruit farm, mostly at Chicago farmers markets, but also on the farm in Southwestern Michigan.

Back when I was a market customer, I always asked myself what it would be like to work on the other side of the table. So last season I decided to keep a blog and tell the story.

The short answer: difficult but fun, with incredible quantities of free fruit.

The longer answer is on my blog: Fruit Slinger.

I've been doing research for an upcoming (not too upcoming) trip to the Philippines and found Table for Three, Please. The blog is OK, but more interestingly to eG readers, it notes that jumanggy recently won a "Best Blog" award in the food category at the Philippine Blog Awards for No Special Effects!

I've also been reading Dessert Comes First and MarketManila--both of which have been mentioned here before.

And (former? current? eG member) Simon Majumdar's Eat My Globe and Dos Hermanos for additional research (he has a lot of info on Asian countries from his around-the-world eating extravaganza).

Thanks so much Rona! (Thank you also, Rob, for mentioning my blog.) You guys are so nice :) Anyway, you might also consider reading ourawesomeplanet for dining suggestions and restaurant reviews for Manila-- I believe it is last year's winner for best food blog.

Here's a foodblog that should be getting ALOT more attention

http://foodonthebrain.wordpress.com/

Beautiful, yet simple, photographs accompanied by delectable recipes and other foodie talk.

Spent a couple of pleasant hours on this blog, so thank you. I like that she doesn't go overboard praising all things as some bloggers tend to do. I also enjoyed the mix of cooking at home and eating out.

Edited to make better sense.
