Round 2 of The 2008 Fabulous Food Blogger Awards: Five More Foodies

*This post contains Amazon affiliate links.*

I’m having a serious case of Food Blogger Love today.

I know I just did Round 1 of these awards a few weeks ago, but I continue to be bowled over by the volume of original, quirky, inspiring, and just downright good food writing I see online everyday.

Round 2: The 2008 Fabulous Food Blogger Awards

I’ve met some seriously cool, interesting, and talented food bloggers since I started The Hungry Mouse. My list is far longer than this, but here are five folks you should definitely check out.

Round 2 of The 2008 Fabulous Food Blogger Awards: Five More Foodies: Oh, rules

I didn’t mention this the last time, but if you receive this award (or if you have some food blogger love of your own to share), please pass it along to five of your favorite foodie folks.

The Happy Gentleman
Alexander lives in Houston with his wife and is a foodie and photographer. How can you not love a guy who is a self-admitted tea connoisseur, organic apartment gardener, and European shoe collector. He takes great pictures and makes food that’s easy to prepare and satisfying. I mean, just check out his lime-baked chicken, and you’ll see what I mean.

The Chicago Dining Examiner
I know, I know. What does a Boston girl care about food in Chicago? This blog is THAT good. That’s all I’ll say. Emily Szopa’s writing is always fresh, funny, and totally on point. (I have a feeling if we lived in the same city, we’d get into all sorts of trouble together.) In addition to writing about eating out in the windy city, she runs recipes and book reviews. For example, she recently clued me in to a great new cookbook.

Megan’s Munchies
Meg makes some of the most mouthwatering, drool-worthy baked goods I’ve ever seen. She’s also possibly one of the nicest bloggers on the planet. Her recipes are well written, not too complicated, and easy to follow. Those Cherry Cheese Rolls she made a little while ago still have my stomach growling.

Kopiaste to Greek Hospitality
This blog is particularly close to my heart because I’m part Greek. If you want to really understand Greek cooking, take a peek at what Ivy has going on in her kitchen. On top of showing you how to prepare delicious Greek food, her posts go above and beyond to explain a little bit about history of whatever you’re cooking. Go have a nibble on her cheese saganaki.

Freezer Burns
Greg Ng is a real-life friend, Elvis impersonator, and one of the most prolific and creative bloggers I’ve ever met. This site centers on frozen food reviews that are at once informative and hugely entertaining. He tests frozen food, then gives you an honest, educated opinion, with his tongue planted firmly in his cheek. Check out what he has to say about Edy’s Limited Edition Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream.

There you have it. Five more fabulous foodie finds. Go check out their blogs. I can almost guarantee you’ll find something to delight you.

As for me, my list of favorite food bloggers grows almost daily. Stay tuned for Round 3 soon.

  5. Sorry I haven't been around lately but BloggerAid, has consumed a lot of my free time and thank God it is ready now. What do you mean you are partly Greek? I had no idea. However, thanks very much for the Award and I will surely pass it on to 5 more friends. It might take me a while to post it but I will definitely try and post it as soon as possible. I have tagged you for a very good cause. Hope you can join me in The Worldwide Blogger Bake Off Challenge. I have to rush and ready that rice pudding of your I saw the picture a while ago and I am still drooling :)
  6. Another great round up! As for Ivy, she is a wonderful person and a great Greek food blogger. I am one of her biggest fans and I am pleased to see her getting the recognition she so richly deserves. Bravo!
