I spend the majority of my day on the Internet. And while sometimes that gives me a headache, eye strain and carpal tunnel, it also gives me constant exposure to content. I peruse so many things on other blogs, Facebook and Twitter – some of it good, some of it not-so-good and other things are just downright great! And I really like to share the good stuff, but I don’t get the chance to here as often as I’d like.
As a foodie, I am always drawn to good food, simple recipes and food porn quality photography. The photos are so important – you eat with your eyes first. And while I have been known to post recipes on this site or food photo or two (or twenty) to Instagram- my blog is not 100% dedicated to food. It’s not a Food Blog per se.
But there are people out there who are Food Bloggers. And many of them do darn good work. I can attest to the fact that food blogging is hard work. I’ll never know their secrets for taking such good food photos. I mean, I know it starts with a kick-ass camera, one that may cost more than a month’s salary to purchase, and it ends with good lighting. Unfortunately for me – I have neither. But, I know some fine folks that do.
Here is a list of my favorite Italian Food Blogs. One warning though – DO NOT VISIT WHEN HUNGRY.
- Bell’alimento As a recipe developer, Paula dishes up her own Italian creations, with flare and humor!
- Proud Italian Cook Marie serves up home cooking with Italian-American style and yummy photos.
