the friday files

This week was all about food for me. I made a concerted effort to eat protein for breakfast every morning and thanks to some of your suggestions I was about 80% successful. It really does make a difference to the start of my day. I also discovered a couple of new food sites that had me salivating with each new photo. There really is no other term for these blogs other than food pornography. I don't know about you but I tend to stick to my own when it comes to perusing other sites. I rarely look at anything beyond the world of design blogs with the exception of a few fashion sites.

Ceri over at The Sweet Potato Chronicles mentioned to me that I should check out two aggregate blogs called Tastespotting and Foodgawker. Both sites simply post the best looking food photographs from blogs around the world with links back to the original posts. I was immediately hooked and was soon submitting some of my own foodie photographs. (My White Bolognese Sauce and Chocolate Chip Cookies made the cut over at Tastespotting!)

Strangely enough while I was off checking out gastronomical blogs of all kinds, The Kitchn, picked up my Homemade Oreos post that I did for The Sweet Potato Chronicles. So as you can see it was a bit of a foodie week for me. Have you seen these sites before? Any other good food sites you visit often?

I'm leaving you this week, with some beautiful images from photographer Eric Piasecki's portfolio. I was immediately struck by his eye for texture. I'll be back here next week with another amazing house from our neighborhood for my Hello! Neighbor series - see you then!
