Blog Log: The week in local blogging

One good thing about winter is eating. Thanksgiving primes us for a season of chowing down beneath the safety of layers of loose-fitting clothing. For us, February marks the peak of cold-weather indulgence — the maximum amount of poundage allowed before we start thinking about maybe cutting back on the gorging in time for spring. Yep, if a belt were a calendar, the hole out nearest the pointy end would be marked Feb.

So in honor of a well-fed winter and the end of the longest February since 2004, Blog Log is highlighting our local foodies.

Sure, food is elemental, and makes appearances in all kinds of blogs. For instance, this week alone saw a Bar-B-Q birthday over at Running Gags and skippy haha celebrated some enchiladas. Also, My Weaverville told us where to get this annual fave. And A Girl Who Wears Glasses found what may be the only way we’ll eat salad from now on.

But for some bloggers, food is the word week to week:

Serving dessert first is My Life in Cake.

Checking out H’ville’s burgeoning fine dining scene is the Hendersonville Epicurean while Girl Talks Kitchen shows us how to do it ourselves.

She Who Eats has, of course, plenty of rants about food.

While Healthy Concepts reminds us we don’t have to kill ourselves to enjoy it.

So now, we’re all hungry again. How bout it? Any other food blogs out there?
