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.
An undergraduate student studying nutrition, Kelsey Smith keeps it simple by showcasing seasonal fruits and vegetables and farmers’ market goods in her recipes. Besides creating beautiful homemade meals, she reviews recipes collected from the web and local restaurants. Her neatly-organized blog presents personal favorites, from food to movies, music, art and travel. Check out her Instagram for seconds.
A geography graduate student with a background in sustainability and language, Megan Betz brings a distinct perspective to the table. Her blog documents personal reflections and research endeavors, which cover food systems, community-based agriculture and work with the Bloomington Community Orchard.
Abby Noroozi dishes on her favorite meals, drinks and desserts from local eateries. Search her archives, complete with photos, when in need of recommendations.
