25 Food Bloggers on Twitter to Follow

I “borrowed” this idea from an amazing marketer, John Paul Aguiar and if you don’t know him you need to.  It doesn’t matter what your industry is.  If you need to promote your business, follow his advice!  That being said, I love to cook and I love social media.  Nothing makes me happier than cooking an amazing meal for my friends and family.  So this monthly post is to shine the spotlight on those wonderful food bloggers whose recipes have inspired me and helped me put smiles on my family’s faces!  If you follow them, yours will be smiling too!

10 Best Restaurants to Follow on Instagram

  While the joke of photographing food has come and gone, what remains is beautifully lit pictures of truly delicious dishes. And if the hipsters started the trend, the restaurants are doing it even better. Which makes sense, because who better to capture the essence of your favorite menu items than the team responsible for creating it?

Here are 10 restaurants (well, eight, plus fantastic ice cream and coffee shops) that really up the food-photo game: @roscoeschickenandwaffles  California Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles is worth following for the name alone.

Red, White & Blue Icebox Cake

Every other week, Anna Hezel talks about the innovations, decorations, and other quiet touches that make a party memorable. Today: A patriotic Fourth of July dessert you can make ahead and pull out of the freezer just in time for the party. I don't know about you, but I tend to have a real procrastination problem when it comes to party desserts. I get so swept up in the rest of the preparations that I wind up either frantically baking cookies in the last 45 minutes before the guests arrive or buying a few pints of ice cream and calling it a day. As much as I wish that I were the sort of person, like my mother, who can produce a dozen strawberry rhubarb pies before 10:00AM, sometimes I need a simpler option; something festive and seasonal that I can make for a crowd without too much work the day of the party.
