Here are food blogs I like that inspire me:
Heidi Swanson's soulful and artful healthy-ish (natural?) reflections, she lives in San Francisco and travels. I'm pretty sure she, and most others with nice design, use Wordpress rather than Moveable Type as their blog-maker of choice.
Alinea at Home
This woman, especially her recent entry on avocado, chocolate, mint, and lime, cracks me up. Her goal is to cook through the Alinea cookbook. She's an entertaining writer.
I'm referring you directly to SK's cookie section. Homemade oreos? Yes, please.
Chocolate and Zucchini
Clotilde Dusoulier's reflections, usually on Paris and her own kitchen.
