Cookbook of the Month: March...and some changes!

Untitled
some of the recipes everyone is trying out on Instagram via #sometimessweeteats

It's crazy how fast these 2014 weeks and months are going by. I wish there were more hours in the day! This month I really enjoyed The Sprouted Kitchen, although I didn't get to make as many of the recipes I would have liked. This next month I wanted to switch it up and utilize some online bloggers/chefs/recipe sites. I haven't chosen one yet, so I am open to any and all suggestions! The only thing I ask is that the recipes are clean and healthy. I think this will be a fun way to make it more accessible to everyone. I can't decide if I want to continue along this path of a new cookbook (or site, with this change), or just scrap the initial idea and stick to trying recipes from everywhere and anywhere and still using the hashtag #sometimessweeteats. Since starting this little project a couple months back I've been cooking SO much more and loving it- it's given me the confidence to try out so many recipes I have not tried before, and for that I'm so grateful.

Soo, long story short, any blogs or sites you'd recommend? I'll figure out what I'm doing and post about it before the 1st for anyone who would like to get on board.

xoxo

  1. A good friend of mine runs a blog called Honey, Ghee, & Me. It's a little Paleo, a little Whole30, but all healthy and amazing. She features a lot of ethnic foods, a fair amount of crock pot meals, and includes as much fresh produce in everything she prepares as possible. We've been forced to do a lot more cooking than we're used to after discovering my daughter's myriad food allergies, and her site has been a big help! My family is healthier than ever, to boot.

  3. Dinner with Julie is a Canadian westie with lots of great recipes. She also has links to many other great sites. So many good ones to choose from!

  4. Smitten Kitchen, Love and Lemons, The First Mess, edible perspective, Dinner: A Love Story.... there are so many great food blogs out there! These sites all have beautiful photos as well.

    p.s. I love the cookbook a month idea! Books in general, but especially cookbooks, are one of my weaknesses (:

  5. I'm sure you've tried some Isa Chandra recipes, but here's her website for good measure :) http://www.theppk.com
    Here are some more vegan food blogs : http://www.plantaful.com/blog , http://ohsheglows.com.
    Alicia Silverstone's The Kind Life is a good website/resource and book.
    And a non vegan one but a shout out to Iowa : http://iowagirleats.com/

  6. My New Roots is one of my favorite cooking sites. She does all vegan, gf, raw and organic, but everything I've made is insanely delicious. Check it out: www.mynewroots.com

  10. Some of my favorites are: My New Roots, Green Kitchen Stories, theppk (I have her cookbook and LOVE it!) & Love and Lemons. Love and Lemons is a recent find and I'm hooked- at least once a week I end up making one of her recipes.

  11. Food52 has some vegan columnist and their recipes, by and large crowd-sourced, are usually really, really good. Also check out Choosing Raw and Oh She Glows and Shutterbean.com as well.

  12. I like Tiffany over at http://www.thegraciouspantry.com/
    She focuses on clean and healthy eating. She's published a couple cookbooks so she's also trying out / posting new recipes. She also takes user feedback on existing recipes and makes them "clean".

  14. I love this idea!! I need to get out my cookbooks more often. I have a healthy lifestyle blog if you want to check it out. I have some recipes posted under the "food" tab.

  15. I use recipes from food blogs all the time - probably even more than cookbooks, although I love those too. I feel like Love and Lemons (loveandlemons.com) would be right up your alley - most of her recipes are vegetarian, usually really healthy, and her pictures are beautiful too so that doesn't hurt. I've made a bunch of her recipes and they've been great. A House In the Hills (ahouseinthehills.com) isn't strictly a food blog but she posts a lot of delicious and creative veggie recipes. My favourite right now is How Sweet It Is (howsweeteats.com) - her recipes don't always fall in the super healthy realm but I've made lots of her recipes and they've all been big hits. Looking forward to following along with what you make!

  19. One of my absolute favorites is Sheena over at In the Little Red House! It's not strictly a food blog, but she has tons of recipes with a focus on yummy, whole foods! I've never had a dud when making one of her recipes. I also really adore Molly at Orangette, her writing is beautiful and her food is wonderful!

  20. www.skinnytaste.com - delicious mix of veg, meat dishes, desserts-- hello skinny mini pumpkin muffins! all about portion control & food that tastes good. so far the 3 dishes I've made have been homeruns.

  21. Have you checked out www.bakeanddestroy.com? She has an awesome vegan cooking website, and she also just came out with a cookbook, so it fits both criteria!

  22. One that I remember loving was NaturallyElla.com. I think I've only tried 2 recipes from there, but they all look so yummy and wholesome.
