Charm City Cooks: Baltimore Food Blogs

Carrie Murphy

Here at BaltimoreEats, we're all about restaurants. Talking about restaurants, reviewing restaurants, finding specials and happy hours at local eateries, interviewing chefs, going to food tastings. You name it...if it's restaurant-related, we love it. But as much as we love eating out, we also love to cook at home. Plenty of Baltimoreans are sharing their local pride and recipes on their food blogs. We've decided to spotlight some of our favorite Baltimore cooking blogs in order to share even more of the culinary creativity that makes up the spirit of Charm City.7th generation (yes, 7th generation!) Baltimorean Rachel of Coconut and Lime has been blogging fresh and healthy recipes since 2004. She's published two cookbooks, has a column in Taste of the Bay magazine and works full-time as a recipe developer. Check out her blog for new recipes every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. We can't wait to try her recipe for Old Bay Zucchini Pickles.

Elena of Biscuits and Such, while not a Baltimore native, has fully embraced local ingredients on her "southern food blog." This MICA grad hails from North Carolina, but her love for her adopted hometown comes across loud and clear. Check out the post where she learns how to properly pick a crab. Be sure to make her Jalapeno Crab Cakes and Baltimore Bomb Pie, too, if you can manage to stop staring at her mouth-watering photos.

We also love 990 Square, a cooking blog named after the author's 100+ year old Southeast Baltimore row house. Beth's recipe for Zrab Cakes (aka zucchini crab cakes) is perfect for the Marylander with a shellfish allergy. This blog also routinely spotlights foodie trips to wineries, farmer's markets, and other food-friendly destinations around the area. If you're ever itching to get out of town, we recommend 990 Square's post about wine touring in Central VA. Road trip, anyone? 

The Hungover Gourmet isn't strictly a cooking blog; it's also a print journal, billed as the "journal of food, drink, travel and fun." Blogger Dan posts Baltimore food news, restaurant reviews and more, not to mention quite a few good suggestions on how to cure those pesky hangovers. He's also attempting to find the best burger in Baltimore.

Wendi of Bon Appetit, Hon cracked us up by somehow turning the idea of a classic Baltimore stoop into a great recipe for Thai Chicken Stew. Of course we love the Bawlmerese blog title Wendi chose, and this creative cooking blog is chock full of easy recipes you can whip up in a Baltimore minute (that's like a New York minute, but better). Her post about Baltimore football ends with a terrific recipe for a Super Bowl snack (next year, Ravens!).
