Just plain good!
Yo, ya'll "shout out" time. I love food, I am awfully skinny, so you wouldn't know it. So a blog on food is a good thing. But when you find a blog that is just plain GOOD, for all the right reasons and is about food, what a powerful combination.
101 Cookbooks is just that combination. Written by Heidi Swanson 101 Cookbooks has a very inviting element, like a good restaurant. It is clean, just like a food preparation environment should be. It is well laid out, things are easy to find; just like all great kitchens. It is informative, she makes it easy to follow and easy to understand; just like a good recipe. 101 Cookbooks is "chic", ya I said "chic!" It has a hip, high end element to it. If Potterybarn were to do a cookbook (maybe they have) it would look and feel a lot like Heidi's blog. (this is a compliment, Potterybarn does "Home" well). 101 Cookbooks is a refreshing, inviting, elegant site on cooking, recipes, and the wonderful lifestyle of food.
If your into food, cooking, entertaining, or just want a good recipe to impress a date, 101 Cookbooks is a must. If you could give a crap about an elegant meal, or the pleasantries of a well prepared supper, go anyway, because her site can teach you a thing or two on how to design a clean, elegant, sophisticated blog.
Heidi has it going on, give her a little love and throw away your scale. The food is just too good, so you might as well just stop trying.
