Maybe I’m just weird, but I find looking through beautiful photos of food both relaxing and inspirational. I used to flip through magazines, which was replaced by RSS feeds, and now I love scrolling through pages of tantalizing food on websites that aggregate food photos. Lately though, it seems like there’s a new site coming out every week, and most of them either lack content or are simply knock-offs of another site.
For a while, I enjoyed Pinterest, but now (like my Twitter feed) it’s become a firehose of imagery that’s more stressful than it is entertaining. That’s why I’m loving Foodie.com’s redesigned site. They took all the best parts of Pinterest and made them better. The interface is a soothing palette of earth-tones with clean typography and no superfluous lines. Because they only feature food, there isn’t a lot of distracting content, and the features are geared specifically towards food (like having the option to mark recipes you’ve made).
Foodie also has an iPad App that’s seasonally updated with some of the best recipes on their site. This month’s update features 40 full recipes from some awesome bloggers including Greg Henry and Stephanie Hua, not to mention 3 recipes from yours truly. Check out the app, follow me, and see you over at Foodie.com!
