Food Gawker

I am a Food Gawker. Some people are attracted to bright lights, others like shiny things. Food is what gets me.

And that, my friends, is why my favorite site this month has been Food Gawker. Not only do they showcase gorgeous, delicious-looking photographs of food, but they also link to the recipes for each delicious morsel. It's pretty much like the Beauty Pageant of Foods. Only pretty foods get accepted onto this site, so you know that everything on it has to look like something that just stepped off of the Restaurant Catwalk.

This weekend, we celebrated a Food Gawker Weekend. On Friday night, I made a quick and easy homemade Chocolate Mousse that I swiped off Food Gawker. Then on Saturday afternoon, Brian baked some Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Cupcakes from there. And then tonight, I whipped up a delicious Risotto - again, courtesy of my best friend Food Gawker.

So for those of you who have never heard of Food Gawker - aren't I your new best friend for introducing it to you? And for those of you who knew about this site - shame on you for not telling me about it! :)

(PS. The winner of the Quirky Beauty Giveaway is Renn. Yay!)

Foodgawker looks amazing Dionne! I keep forgetting to ask you, but have you been to the blog La Fuji Mama (http://www.lafujimama.com)? I know you you'd love it; I've made a couple of things from there and they always turn out great!

I absolutely LOVE how you plated that risotto. Did you use a mold or a cup or a bicuit cutter or something? It looks beautiful.

I'm an unashamed food gawker! That's why I can't get out of places like Portos without eating something there and taking something to go!

LBB said...

Oh fun, thanks for sharing that site! I'll have to stop by... But for now I'm gawking at your risotto! Yum!

Phoenix said...

You ARE my new best friend, as I love food photographs and recipes...but let's be honest, I'm an Ugg boot/mini skirt/bright neon/horrific plaid/fashion police gawker.

I think that kind of makes me a jerk.

avant garde said...

first of all, sometimes i get this urge to attempt a recipe or take on a new kitchen challenge even though i'm cooking handicapped. seriously i am. my fiance always smirks when i say i'm going to actually make something, because he knows better (he's an unbeliveable cook, it'a wonder i'm not 500 lbs.) but this site at least looks to be great eye-candy. and if i want something, i'll hand the recipe over to...him :) great find!

Carol said...

These pictures are making me so hungry!! I'm excited to check out this site!
