The Flavors of Abruzzo

This blog is written by a US expat living in the Abruzzo region of Italy. I always really love reading expat blogs, they give such an interesting perspective on the area of the world where they live. I always love finding out how they ended up there, out of all the places in the world, and how they adjust to the point where their new country becomes “home”. Maybe that is because I am married to my own expat, or because I have also lived in other countries (I consider the Navajo Nation a different country), and therefore can relate. But another reason is I love seeing what they cook up in their kitchens! So if you like Italian food, or like to read about the lives of expats, you should check this one out!

Rico Cafe-Bistro

Have you guys met Rico? If not you should certainly go and pay his blog a visit. Rico is a very friendly blogger who has recently been really reaching out to the food blogging community with kind greetings, and a smile on his face (well I imagine there is a smile on his face, anyway…). His goal is to blog about recipes that are easy to create or bake, nutritious, wholesome, healthy and economical too.

The Last Bite

has a really cool logo, and that spoon of chocolate just lets you know right away that there are a lot of yummy recipes to be had by reading this blog. Another great thing about this blog is when you check out the recipes, they are all good ingredients. This always makes me happy – bloggers that care about where their food comes from – I swear we are starting a movement! This blogger also believes that the care and love you put into your food, are the right ingredients to make the perfect dish. She doesn’t believe eating is all about fueling the body, there is more to it. She says: “Each meal is the opportunity for a food story, or in other words an edible hug”.

Nooschi: A Food Diary

This blog was started as a way for the author to document her food filled adventures. She realized that when she traveled she took almost as many food photos as anything else, and wanted to create a way to remember her journeys with stories. What does Nooschi mean?

Pronounced noo-shee, the name is a true portmanteau, and is combination of both the author and her partner’s cultures: Persian and Chinese. “In Persian, the word for bon appétit is noosh – e – jan, and the word for eating in Chinese is chi. You put the two together, and you get Nooschi!”

Fried Pickles and Ice Cream

This is another expat in Italy blog. This blog is a spin off from her original blog as a way to share recipes with family and friends. She has recently joined many of the blogging worlds monthly challenges as well, and so this is a blog for her to share her experiences there as well. Right now, I am really drooling over her Strawberry Vanilla Cake with Limoncello Frosting. Apparently it is so good, she made it five times in one month!
