The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Food Blog Edition

A few weeks ago, I posted a list of the personal finance and personal development blogs I read. Several readers were quite surprised to find that I didn’t actually list any food blogs, since I’m pretty passionate about cooking at home.

So, this week, for a change of pace, I thought I’d highlight some excellent posts from some of my favorite food blogs. Enjoy!

Spend Less, Eat Healthier: The Five Most Important Things You Can Do I completely agree with these five “commandments.” In fact, they pretty much describe how we shop for food and make meal choices. (@ cheap healthy good)

Homemade Granola Bars Mark Bittman (author of one of my favorite cookbooks, How to Cook Everything) offers up a fairly simple and very delicious recipe for homemade granola bars. (@ bitten)

Monica Bhide’s Chile Pea Puffs These are excellent little appetizers – pretty simple, very tasty (and spicy), and not all that complicated. It’s a great way to surprise guests if you need an unusual finger food. Plus, the article claims they freeze very well, so you can make a jumbo batch. Note: most of the time, I prefer olive oil to cooking spray. (@ 101 cookbooks)

The Fiesta Continues A pretty simple idea – if you have leftovers, dice them and toss them on a tortilla and you’re close to something tasty. I love this blog simply because it’s incredibly human – it’s a great visual reflection of how a real person eats. Plus, I like her taste in reading (as evidenced by the last photo).

A Little Slice of Toasted Heaven: Lemon Coconut Quick Bread Recipe This is an amazing little loaf of sweet bread and a perfect way to use up that little bit of leftover coconut we have sitting in the freezer! (@ foodie farm girl)
