Resources for Cooking at Home


To wrap up this mini series of menu planning and home cooking, here are a list of some of my favorite online guides to help ease the journey and tempt you with great recipes and photos:

Not Eating Out in New York
Started as a blog to document Cathy’s efforts to not eat in restaurants while living in New York (a difficult feat I can assure you) between 2006 and 2008, this blog is full of creative, doable recipes that can be made in your own kitchen, no matter the size. She also keeps a running tally of reasons for “not eating out,” which provide excellent motivation for your cooking ambitions.

New York Times Recipes for Health
This New York Times blog is updated each week with five recipes based on one ingredient–from zucchini to quinoa flour to rice noodles. The recipes are always varied, fresh, and simple.

Sprouted Kitchen
Written by someone who really loves her vegetables, this blog is all about using wholesome ingredients to create quality dishes.

The Vegetarian Family Table
This blog is still on the young-side but it is run by veteran food blogger Ari, who uses the blog to chronicle her vegetarian home-cooking adventures. Her recipes are healthy, filling, and delicious.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of resources–these are just some that are particularly conducive to planning menus and cooking during the week. Other blogs that I love and follow can be found in the “Blog roll” to the right. Some of these haven’t been updated in a while, but their archives contain well-loved treasures. Enjoy and get ready for some new recipes to be posted soon!
