Blogs We're Lovin': Seattle Foodies & Winos
We love blogging and we love bloggers, so we thought it was time to spread all this bloggy love to all of our blog readers! The blogs we’re lovin’ this week are all Seattle based (just like us) and have a fresh opinion about what to drink, what to eat, and how to go about making/purchasing it (in some cases). Check them out and spread the bloggy love! Isn’t this lovely?
Meet: Seattle Food Geek
We are new fans of the Seattle Food Geek and happy to have found him! Somehow this geek makes Cedar Plank Grilled Salmon with Orange-Muscat Blanc, sound do-able by the most novice of chefs. Even more impressive is the indexing! Have a party to plan? Click the parties link for hors d’oeuvre ideas. Want the perfect seasonal drink? The drinks category’s got you covered… did someone say White Wine Sangria? YUM! A microsftie by day and a total food geek by night, this blog’s technically clean and easy to navigate while still putting something out there you can really sink your teeth into… literally!
Meet: Pat My Butter
This lady knows her food and even better, she’s happy to share her experience with all of us! With a serious knack for seeking out those spots in Seattle you feel like you always kinda wanted to try, Pat My Butter gives a fair depiction of the ambiance, service and food you can expect when you get around to giving those spots a visit. Check out her reviews on everything from road-side dining out of a giant pig truck to enjoying beef tongue that was “meaty rather than tonguey”. Even better, check out some of her work COMING SOON to the GoTime blog. We are excited to announce that Kate Opatz at Pat My Butter is going to be sharing some of her Seattle dining adventures with us and we hope you’ll give her a warm welcome.
The name says it all, they spy on cake, seek it out, watch, inspect, devour. Do NOT visit this blog unless you are prepared to have a sudden craving for an immediate sugar fix. We love this blog because, well, we love its focus! Layered cakes, cupcakes, chocolate, yellow, strawberry delight, heck all of the above and then some please. Cakespy is comprised of a couple “cake gumshoes” that report back on various findings of bakeries, cake baking competitions, holiday cupcake recipes and much, much more. For the full on Seattle focus check out the genius behind Cakespy, Jessie Oleson here. Both sites will direct you to local deliciousness and really, that’s what matters.
Meet: Couple of Winos
A couple of Seattle winos that enjoy a glass (or two) of wine every now and again, this couple is on a “full-fledged quest for the understanding and enjoyment of Washington state wines and the wineries that make them.” Perfection! We love this blog because it comes complete with a Washington Winery Directory, reviews of local events, and detailed play-by-plays from the adventures they encounter on their “quest”. One of the writers, Miss Lisa Rivera, is a GoTime Guest Blogger and she is the sweetest. You can tell through her blog (which she writes with her boyfriend), how passionate this “Couple of Winos” is about wine, Washington and what a trip it can be finding the best of the best.
