I’ve been inspired to cook a lot lately, and it’s largely due to the increase in the number of food blogs I’ve been reading.  I’m really impressed with the quality and diversity of the food blogging out there.  And I’ve learned that apparently if you want a really sexy food blog, you have to take pictures.  To that end, I’ll try to post more images of stuff that I cook, although I have to admit that looks is not what I optimize for. :-)

I updated the blogroll on this site to reflect the foodie blogs I’ve been reading.  Check them out.  I’m particularly interested right now in the profusion of food blogs written by Indian women.  I love cooking (and eating) Indian food, and I’m also really passionately interested in the food that people really eat at home rather than restaurant of Americanized cookbook food, and these blogs totally fascinate me.  Take a look at a few, and I think you’ll be as hooked as I am. 

Blogging is a great medium for this kind of study, since people mostly post about the food they really eat everyday.  At least I know I do.

I've attached the OPML for these blogs as an Rss enclosure for those who aren't looking at the HTML.
