5 To Follow: These Food Blogs Will Add Some New Recipes to Your Old Rotation

Food Blogs to Follow That'll Add Some Serious Inspiration to Your Kitchen | NextTribe

If you’re bored silly with avocado toast (if that’s even possible) and need some new recipes to spark your creativity in the kitchen, let us help satisfy that craving:

Dorie Greenspan: The award-winning cookbook author has a wonderful, chatty site for those times you feel like baking (yes, there’s a gluten-free section), though there are a few savory dishes as well.  Try her famous cookie recipes for your next book group—the July pick has some espresso mixed right in to get the energy going.

Empty Nest Eats: This site shares what happens when a 50-something couple finds the kids have flown and they can cook what they want to. There’s a sweet, intergenerational vibe, like when their oldest daughter, an organic farmer, inspires recipes like this one for Eggs Shakshuka.

Food 52: This remarkable resource, started by two terrific chef/journalists—Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs—is a fab virtual community of real cooks. You’ll find almost 50,000 recipes (including this corn salad you should make immediately), tips and techniques, and more.

Food Network: If you are cooking for one, you know the frustration of trying to find single-portion recipes. This mega-site has legit options, including Giada’s pasta with mixed greens and goat cheese. Yummy and you won’t be eating leftovers all week.

Midlife Croissant: How can you not love a site that tells you it’s all about “healthy food and cocktails”? Christine shares dishes like farro bowls, chickpea-crust pizza, all kinds of smoothies, and, yes, fun ideas with booze like a Cherry Cilantro Vodka Spritzer.

Summer Read: Pamela Druckerman’s Latest Is a Nora-Ephron-Like Take on Midlife

There Are No Grown-Ups, a recent collection of essays by the wry and wise best-selling author Pamela Druckerman, is just the thing for those of us who are missing Nora Ephron’s stellar voice. This book offers up Druckerman’s take on life in her 40’s—with musings on how waiters suddenly know to call her Madame instead of Mademoiselle (she lives in France), and what it’s like to honor her husband’s unusual gift request for a big birthday (it involves a certain act, in bed, and not just with the two of them).
