Food, glorious food! When done well, food is more than just fuel. Not all of us are blessed with a natural knack for whipping up the tastiest treats. For those who need a little guidance for their gastronomy, food bloggers are practically a gift from heaven.
Yes, I'm sure we all have the odd cookbook, maybe one handed down, with tons of recipes inside - but nothing beats a good instructional video that can help you make the food, from scratch, step-by-step and as painlessly as possible. It also helps to see other people's experiences with the recipe in blog, Instagram, or YouTube comments.
Grass-fields presents a carefully selected list of food bloggers that will leave you hungry for more.
The Kitchenista Diaries
Heirloom tomatoes, radishes, cucumbers, avocados, spinach and spring mix. Vinaigrette was a quick shake in the mason jar... dijon mustard, honey, lime juice, cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, lots of chopped cilantro, salt and pepper. I was craving #salad today so instead of cooking a bunch of sides I got some fresh #veggies in. #kitchenistasundays #kitchenista #sundaydinner #dinner

Chocolate for Basil
Dreamy (vegan GF Skillet) cookie. I don't apologize for this, because I know there is someone out there that needs this recipe right now. Whoever you are, this one is for you ☝🏾🌟(inspired by @mollyyeh Skillet cookie photo yesterday) Here's how to make them: Preheat oven to 350 F. And oil a 8 inch cast iron skillet. Mix together: ¼ heaping cup almond butter ½ cup sugar in the raw ½ cup coconut sugar ½ cup neutral oil 1/3 cup applesauce pinch sea salt 1/2 tsp baking soda Then fold in 1 ½ cups fine almond flour, ½ cup garbanzo bean flour, and ½ cup chocolate chips (dairy-free if desired). Spread the mixture evenly in the oiled skillet, and bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown and no longer wiggly in the center but still gooey. Remove from the oven, top with some coarse sea salt and allow to cool completely before slicing. Enjoy <3 happy Tuesday!!
We all know by now that vegan food doesn't need to be boring. So whether you're lactose intolerant, a vegan for ethical reasons, or simply want to cut down on dairy and try something new, Chocolate for Basil is the perfect destination.
Now that I'm back at school, and back in the library, I'm back to packing hearty lunches for myself 😋For some reason I'm the hungriest person when I have papers to write...Always taking snack breaks 🙋🏾Spinach rolls today. I stuffed them with leftover roasted butternut squash and red onions, spinach, sundried tomatoes in olive oil, and garlic hummus, plus this week's batch of veggie minestrone. 🙌🏾(these weekly soups are making my life so easy) Are you guys packing lunches, and if so, what are you putting in there?? 👀

Shape UP African
Last but not at all least, we have Zee Bernice Tiena, the foodie and weight loss coach behind Shape Up African. The Hamburg-based food blogger shows her followers how to rustle up traditional African dishes using locally available ingredients.
Lunch was Poulet (chicken) yassa and Sympli yam fries. A Senegalese favorite. It’s chicken infused with mustard, lots of onions, lemon juice and garlic. Kiddies did the ‘licky licky’ (licking fingers). That’s how delicious this was. Click the link on my profile to watch me make some on YouTube. There’s also a detailed recipe on my blog. #senegalesecuisine #pouletyassa #shapeupafrican
Drawing on her heritage, Zee makes tasty African dishes with her own special twist, adding mustard to classic such as chicken yassa with yam.
