2. SPOON FORK BACON
Spoon Fork Bacon is a delicious blog created by two Californian gals Teri Lyn Fisher and Jenny Park. While Jenny creates the scrumptious eats, Teri documents them through her mouthwatering photography. The duo post a wide variety of recipes from “cheesy quinoa cakes” to “pumpkin thyme mac and cheese”. Their blog has become so widely successful that they recently published a book filled with quick and easy bite-sized eats titled “Tiny Food Party”; a must read for anyone planning a dinner party.

Her website’s ‘tagline’ is Food / Photography / Pretty Things – and, it’s safe to say, that’s accurate. Her recipe roll has an impressive assortment of vegan and vegetarian solutions, so all can enjoy a dish off of her gourmet site.
