I will confess to having personally sampled many of the delectable dishes created by Maya so I’m probably a bit biased when it comes to nominating her blog. Although she has been an irregular poster lately, the archives are well worth reading through (and drooling over). I’m a long-time vegetarian but her photos and writing are so gorgeous that even I want to try the crab cakes!
Keeping on the food theme, vegetarian this time. And with another confession… Sarah is my neighbour. But that doesn’t make her blog any less fabulous! She is also an irregular poster but again, that hardly matters when there is a mouth-watering archive.
Despite the title this is not a food blog (though Christian is also my neighbour, he just doesn’t know it). I LOVE this blog. I have learned so much about the community where I live and about Winnipeg from his posts. I also totally appreciate all the photos he includes. This blog may have limited global appeal (do you have to be a Winnipegger or ex-pat to be interested in this town?!?) but hopefully it will inspire others. Every city need a dumpling!
Okay, ya, I know Tracy too. I read her personal blog to keep up with what she and her lovely family are doing (and baking) but I’m nominating this blog because it is like reading a design magazine made especially for me. 70s childhood? Check. Love of modernist design? Check. Cute dog? Check. Gardening? Check. Desire to live a simple, uncluttered life filled with family and friends? Check and check. T – even though we are half a continent apart, you are always inspiring.
And finally, a blog that I have no personal connection to and that doesn’t include food (except possibly the coffee and donut ride). I’ve been following this blog for five or more years and although many of the posts center on Sioux Falls, they are nonetheless motivating. Plus I dig this guy’s sense of humour.
