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

Enjoying good food is about more than just taste. Eating is a complete sensory experience, often beginning with sight. This week’s installment is a list of food blogs that appeal not only through local, seasonal recipes but also through beautiful, step-by-step photography.

Take a look, and if you have not already planned your next home cooked meal, these photos will inspire some fresh recipe ideas.

Local Milk

A Tennessee native, Elizabeth Evelyn of Local Milk has a hunger for real food and a deep passion for Southern cooking. She strives to find adventure and beauty in all things, however simple, and her photos of seasonal recipes reflect an artistic perspective in life.

The First Mess

The First Mess is all about celebrating community and sharing recipes that use local, seasonal ingredients. Bright, colorful foods, herbs and spices against clean white countertops inspire refreshing takes on simple ingredient combinations.


The duo behind Happyolks – a collection of food and travel stories for “Happy Folks” – offers easy recipes for wholesome meals, made with ingredients from gardens or local farmers markets. Along with step-by-step recipe photos are beautiful short films of outdoor adventures, like hiking over mountains and cooking over fires.

Petite Kitchen

Petite Kitchen brings the simplest, most natural-as-can-be recipes and to the table. Each photo represents nourishment in every aspect of life that stems from eating healthy, unprocessed foods.

My New Roots

My New Roots shares edible inspirations from the kitchen with gorgeous, colorful photography that features organic, whole foods. From breakfast to dessert, these photos inspire healthy meals for every season.

Sarah Ostaszewski

Sarah Ostaszewski is a student of anthropology and fine arts at Indiana University. She dreams of fresh summer tomatoes from her family's garden, and she loves tasting unique ingredients, learning culinary histories, and tracing foods back to their roots.
