With all the fabulous food blogs online today, it’s hard to pick “the best.” I started out trying to make a list of 30, but I couldn’t stop there, so I ended up with a list of the Top 30+ Food Blogs instead.
There are just so many great options! It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner cook or an experienced chef. These blogs have tips and recipes you’ll love.
Whether you’re looking for southern-style cooking, vegetarian-friendly meals, or tips on improving your baking, you can find it on one of these sites.
1. Spend with Pennies
What began as a place to share shopping tips has now evolved into one of the go-to blogs for everyday cooks looking for simple, comforting, and affordable home cooking ideas.
Whether you’re looking for quick, easy appetizers or delicious dessert recipes, Spend with Pennies can help you find something perfect.
2. Cafe Delights
Cafe Delights is the blog to visit if you’re looking for a way to improve your relationship with your body and with food.
The blog is the brainchild of self-proclaimed “balanced foodie” Karina, and it has full of recipes that are Weight Watchers-compliant, low-fat, and low-calorie.
Occasionally, she even throws in a few low-carb recipes and some delightful dishes to enjoy on your cheat days.
Cafe Delights is all about healthy, tasty recipes you can feel good about eating.
3. Damn Delicious
Although it began as the cheeky hobby of then-grad student Chungah Rhee, Damn Delicious is now one of the most well-respected food blogs online.
For nine years, Chungah and her current team have been providing visitors with elegant Asian and American recipes made from simple, fresh ingredients.
Each recipe includes a step-by-step tutorial on making the dish. If you can’t get enough of the Damn Delicious blog, there’s also a cookbook available!
4. Gimme Some Oven
If you’re looking for a blog that can help you entertain guests, Gimme Some Oven is a great choice.
According to its owner, Ali, she created the blog to “celebrate life around the table and the favorite recipes that bring us all together,” and that’s precisely what it does.
From tacos to margaritas and salads to sangria, Gimme Some Oven is packed with yummy, easy-to-make recipes that are perfect for sharing with others.
5. Dinner at the Zoo
Anyone who’s trying to feed a family full of picky eaters in a limited amount of time must check out Dinner at the Zoo.
The blog’s creator, Sara Welch, was once a cooking aficionado, but then, she had three daughters and very little free time.
She still loved cooking, but she had to shift her focus.
Dinner at the Zoo is the result of that shift.
The blog focuses not only on healthy recipes the whole family will enjoy but also on time-saving tips and suggestions on pleasing picky eaters.
6. Cooking Classy
If you’re looking for food that’s a little more decadent, check out Cooking Classy.
Popular recipes include Mexican and Italian dishes, full-flavored favorites like pizza, pasta, and enchiladas, and plenty of yummy desserts.

7. Sally’s Baking Addiction
Everything you need to know about this blog is right there in the name.
Sally has a passion for baking, and with a whole team at her back and three cookbooks, she must be doing it right.

She also has some good savory and salty recipes to share.
While you’re there, don’t forget to check out her “How To” and “Baking Tips” sections, as well.
8. Natasha’s Kitchen
It may be called Natasha’s Kitchen, but this blog is a team effort between Natasha Kravchuk and her husband, Vadim.
Natasha’s Kitchen gets over seven million views a month, and the Youtube page has over two million subscribers!
Every recipe Natasha posts/videos is a recipe that she and her family have tried and enjoyed.
She shares lots of familiar favorites, but her Ukrainian heritage also influences many of her recipes.
This blog is great for recipes that are family-friendly, fresh, and healthy!
9. Two Peas & Their Pod
Marie and Josh, another husband and wife duo, frequently post a wide variety of sweet and savory recipes that are also fun, family-friendly, and mostly healthy.
Their blog also has a massive cookie section, boasting nearly 200 recipes! They’re self-styled “cookie addicts” and claim their cookie recipes are their obsession.
So if you’re looking for new cookies to bake for the holiday season, or you have a hankering for new and exciting meals, give Two Peas & Their Pod a try.
10. Smitten Kitchen
Of all the food bloggers online today, Deb Perelman is one of the warmest and most down-to-earth.
Her kitchen is small and homey, and she uses ingredients you can easily find at any neighborhood grocery store.
Deb believes that cooking should be about the food, not fancy gadgets in the kitchen.
She creates recipes that are nutritious, affordable, and stick-to-your-ribs good.
Deb prides herself on her delicious comfort foods, and as often as possible, she makes everything from scratch. Deb is a true chef in every sense of the word.
Although she may not have known it then, FoodieCrush’s creator Heidi was destined to become a food blogger when she won her first blue ribbon for her snickerdoodles in the fourth grade.
Since then, Heidi has increased her cooking repertoire to include all kinds of unique sweet and savory foods.
Her site features healthy, seasonal recipes incorporating fresh ingredients.
She loves to host large gatherings, and her recipes often reflect that. If you need to feed an army, Heidi has you covered.
She still makes a mean snickerdoodle, too.
12. RecipeTin Eats
RecipeTin Eats’ host, Nagi, creates and shares recipes based on four basic pillars of what she believes cooking is all about: “fast, creative, clever, and fresh.”
She creates fun and adventurous recipes that anyone can follow, no matter their budget or their skills in the kitchen.
Her recipes are also healthy and made from scratch whenever possible.
13. Ambitious Kitchen
Ambitious Kitchen is more than just a food blog. It’s an entire lifestyle site.
The website’s founder, Monique, struggled with an eating disorder during her time in college.
Since then, she’s worked hard to develop not just a healthier relationship with food but a healthier life.
Ambitious Kitchen is a passion project that turned into something so much larger.
It provides a wide variety of recipes to fit various dietary needs, including low-carb, vegan, and dairy-free.
There’s also a lifestyle section that covers style, natural beauty, exercise routines, and more.
If you’re looking for a site that’ll help you become more well-rounded and healthy, this is it.
14. Pinch of Yum
Before she was a food blogger, Pinch of Yum’s founder, Lindsey, was a fourth-grade teacher, and she brings that warm-hearted drive to educate and inform with every new recipe she shares.
Pinch of Yum started as Lindsey’s dream, and it’s now grown so large, she has a whole team behind her.
Her recipes and lifestyle tips are incredible, but Lindsey is also willing to share the secrets of her success.
If you’re considering starting a food blog, Pinch of Yum is a great place for tips.
15. Brown Eyed Baker
The brown-eyed baker herself, Michelle, is a firm believer that anyone who wants to cook can.
She fills her site with recipes that empower even beginner chefs to have confidence and be creative.
Her forte is baking, and her site includes an excellent “Baking 101” section that’s a must-read for anyone lacking confidence around an oven.
Of course, the site has plenty of great non-baking recipes, too.
If you’re looking for some holiday inspiration, check out her cupcake recipe archives. There’s some fantastic stuff in there.
16. Cookie and Kate
If you have a vegetarian in your life, you’ll want to bookmark this wonderful blog right now.
Each recipe is a healthy vegetarian recipe made with fresh ingredients.
The blogger, Kate, is all about sustainable living, and together with her dog, Cookie, she’s accomplishing that goal one nutritious recipe at a time.
I love Kate’s site because she never fails to add detailed nutritional facts to each of her recipes.
If you find you love her, too, check out her vegetarian cookbook, Love Real Food.
17. Love and Lemons
Speaking of vegetarian cookbooks, the creators of Love and Lemons – lovebirds Jeanine and Jack – have two of their own, and they’re fantastic.
They also have a great vegan and vegetarian-friendly blog.
They started out sharing their phenomenal vegetarian and vegan desserts, but they’ve since added plenty of savory recipes to their archives, as well.
They have some mouthwatering ideas concerning what a taco bar should look like, and they’re known for their use of fresh ingredients.
So if you like to eat fresh, check out Love and Lemons.
18. The Modern Proper
The Modern Proper was originally the brainchild of two friends, Holly Erickson and Natalie Mortimer, but their team has grown to include more members.
They designed the website on the idea that hospitality, manners, and social etiquette aren’t dead, and all it takes to remind people of that is one good, proper dinner party.
In addition to recipes you can use while entertaining, Holly and Natalie also like to feature 30-minutes-or-less meals and single-pot meals.
Self-proclaimed “real food lover, meal prep fanatic, and massive wanderluster,” Downshiftology’s founder, Lisa, is more than just a blogger.
She’s a meal prepper, a health coach, and a true believer in healing and nourishing one’s body through food and taking time to experience life fully.
She fills her blog with lifestyle advice, travel stories, and plenty of wholesome, gluten-free recipes that prove eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring or plain.
20. Feasting at Home
I couldn’t possibly describe Feasting at Home any better than the blog’s founder, Sylvia, so I’m not even going to try.
Sylvia describes it perfectly by calling it a “globally-inspired, seasonal, whole foods recipe blog to nurture body, mind, and spirit.”
Although the blog isn’t strictly vegetarian/vegan-friendly, most of her recipes are veggie-driven and made from scratch, using fresh, healthy, mostly plant-based ingredients.
If you’re looking for a way to add more veggies to your diet, check out Sylvia’s blog.
21. A Couple Cooks
We can’t talk about vegan and vegetarian recipes without mentioning Sonja and Alex Overhiser’s blog, A Couple Cooks.
Their cookbook was named “best vegetarian cookbook” by Epicurious and Food & Wine, and their blog is just as spectacular.
It features an excellent section for beginner cooks on honing basic cooking skills.
It’s also full of healthy and sustainable plant-based vegetarian recipes for every meal of the day.
The Overhisers also give site visitors a free 28-day healthy meal plan.
22. Minimalist Baker
Minimalism grows more popular every year.
As the world gets more cluttered, more crowded, and more full of stuff, people are looking for ways to cut back and use less.
That’s just as true in cooking as it is anywhere else in life.
If you’re the kind of person who tells yourself you’d cook more, “if only I had the time!” then get ready to cook.
Every recipe on this blog requires fewer than ten ingredients, can be fixed in a single bowl, or is ready in 30 minutes or less.
With Minimalist Baker, you’ll no longer have any excuses not to cook.
23. Tastes Better from Scratch
Everything tastes better from scratch, right? This blog’s founder, Lauren, believes so.
The blog has over ten million readers a month and has been featured in various publications.
It provides visitors with free meal planning guides and an exhaustive list of recipes inspired by Lauren’s numerous travels throughout the world and her mother’s down-home cooking.
There are plenty of holiday-specific recipes perfect for entertaining and a wide selection of ethnic cuisines from China, France, Thailand, Mexico, Greece, and more.
24. The Recipe Critic
Any blog that calls itself The Recipe Critic is bound to be discerning and have only the best recipes.
That’s why every recipe founder Alyssa Rivers posts have been tasted and critiqued by her friends or family.
If it doesn’t pass her critics’ taste tests, it doesn’t make it to the blog.
This site also features diet-specific recipes, a 30-minute meals section, and a search feature that allows you to search for recipes by the ingredients you have on hand!
If you’re looking for an innovative blog that’ll help make meal planning a snap, check out The Recipe Critic.
25. Fit Foodie Finds
Fit Foodie Finds is a female-run food and wellness blog that includes recipes, meal prep guides, workouts, wellness tips, and a life and style section.
A fundamental belief in balance is at the core of all Fit Foodie Finds’ recipes and wellness tips.
The ladies who run the blog don’t believe in depriving themselves and feel that a well-balanced approach to life is best.
As a result, you’ll find a wide variety of recipes ranging from fresh, low-calorie vegetarian meals to rich, decadent desserts.
Whatever you’re craving, Fit Foodie Finds probably has a recipe for it.
26. The Country Cook
I love Brandie Skibinski’s website, The Country Cook because both she and her site are entirely relatable.
Unlike many food bloggers who’ve worked for magazines and have advanced degrees in marketing and photography, Brandie is just a regular, down-to-earth mom trying to feed her family healthy meals that don’t bore them.
Whether you’re looking for dinner inspiration, new sweet and savory breakfast ideas, or after-dinner dessert recipes to wow the kids, Brandie has you covered.
27. Inspired Taste
Adam and Joanne Gallagher created Inspired Taste in 2009 as a way to share their love of cooking with the world, and it’s only grown since then.
The Gallaghers believe that cooking should be enjoyable, not stressful, so most of their recipes are easy to follow and easily adapted to suit different tastes and dietary needs.
They try to add substitution options for most recipes and continually urge their readers to be flexible and creative – to take chances in the kitchen!
According to site reviewers, the Gallaghers focus on home-style favorites that use “real food” and are “seemingly fool-proof.”
28. Jo Cooks
With her blog, Jo focuses on 30-minute meals, Instant Pot meals, meals you can make in one dish, slow cooker meals, and meals inspired by cultures worldwide.
In her own words, Jo strives to “bring you all a taste of each corner of the Earth, every last bite seasoned to perfection and served up with love.”
I don’t know about you, but that sounds delicious to me. She provides readers with numerous recipes from Italy, Asia, Mexico, Romania, and other countries.
29. Budget Bytes
Founded by a woman with a Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Science and years of experience with living (and cooking) on a budget, Budget Bytes was created to help people discover healthy, delicious, and affordable meals.
We’ve all heard it said that eating right is much more expensive than eating junk.
Beth, the site’s founder, is passionate about dispelling that myth.
She’s even turned her blog into a convenient mobile app to help people find the ingredients they need while they’re in the store looking for them.
30. The Salty Marshmallow
The Salty Marshmallow focuses on delivering quick, easy, convenient meals for the average Joe (or JoAnne) in the kitchen.
The site’s founder, Nichole, describes herself as a “cheese addict” and a “kitchen mess maker.” In other words, she’s my kind of cook.
Her recipes are usually healthy, frequently yummy, and sometimes have a Midwestern flair.
Her special interests are in comfort food and baking, and the site features plenty of both.
31. The Stay at Home Chef
This blog’s founder, Rachel Farnsworth, created her site with a single goal in mind: to provide visitors with restaurant-quality recipes they could easily make at home.
Rachel suffers from Addison’s Disease, but she doesn’t let that slow her down.
Instead, she uses her platform to bring awareness to the disease, feeding the minds of her readers as she teaches them to feed themselves delicious, nutritious meals.
32. Averie Cooks
If you’re tired of browsing through recipes that require 40 ingredients and would never be feasible to make, check out Averie Cooks.
Founded by Averie Sunshine in 2009, Averie Cooks features tasty, “real food” recipes that everyone loves to eat.
They’re quick and easy to make, and they’re high-quality crowd-pleasers.
You won’t find any fancy foreign recipes you can’t pronounce or elaborate recipes with 42 ingredients here.
These are good, old-fashioned 30-minutes-or-less recipes anyone can make.
Averie posts new recipes every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
33. The Chunky Chef
Whether you’re searching for a fantastic cookbook, trying to learn how to cook, or looking for a yummy, exciting recipe, The Chunky Chef has something for you.
With an excellent “Learn to Cook” section and a shop containing Amanda’s three reasonably priced cookbooks, The Chunky Chef is so much more than just a great place for recipes.
Surprisingly, Amanda herself was once a lousy cook, so she knows how frustrating a complicated recipe can be.
That’s why she took the time to create her extensive “Learn to Cook/Cooking Basics” guide.
Furthermore, she works hard to ensure that her recipes are well-written and easy-to-follow, and she designed them specifically for people who could burn water in the kitchen.
To put it bluntly, if you’re a terrible cook who desperately needs instruction, The Chunky Chef can help you.
Additionally, if you’re a fantastic cook looking for new and exciting recipes, The Chunky Chef can help you, too.
