Blogs are like baseball cards or Beanie Babies…which ones do you have in your collection? Some people love wedding and decor blogs while other people obsess over street style snaps on the internets. Personally, I love a good recipe blog. I am always inspired by how others use healthy wholesome ingredients to create divine masterpieces that melt in our mouths. And the photos! It’s all about the mouthwatering photos.
