It isn't called Bloomington for nothing! Tulips are in bloom in front of Indiana University's Sample Gates.

Each week, Earth Eats shares a comprehensive list of links to food media outlets, including but not limited to film, books, photo blogs, websites, video series, and podcasts.

Blogs do an excellent job of providing us tastes into lives of those both near and far, but for this week’s food media link list we stick close to home. Here are five bloggers, including students at Indiana University and natives to Bloomington, Indiana, who share photos, recipes and recommendations for good eats.
