  • ORDER UP: Shrimp Taco Salad with Black Bean Puree at Arkansas Foodies
There are a lot of blogs out there concerning Arkansas food. These dogged individuals are bringing you all sorts of different angles on everything from growing to consuming to pairing to... well, you get the general idea.

Jill and Kerry and the gang are covering the state's culinary travel for the state of Arkansas and the Department of Parks and Tourism over on the Arkansas Culinary Blog. Entries range from events you can attend around these parts to restaurant reviews to important state food announcements.

Michael at Arkansas Foodies has been doing a splendid job of combining delicious recipes with restaurant reviews and festival updates. Bonus: his fiance, Jessica Miller, is pretty darn good at food porn photography, too. You really should check his blog out.

I've been enjoying glancing over at Lindsey's Menu from time to time. There's no "about us" on it, just a post every day or so about a different recipe tried with a link to the recipe, results and a picture. That's pretty cool AND it meets the good blog rule: thou shall update the blogs you create.

At Terri's Table, it's Terri coming up with the recipes, and some of them are fantastic. I've been meaning to try out her recipe for Grandmother's Bread, made with ricotta cheese whey. Sounds delightful.

There's Dining with Debbie... I may have mentioned this blog before, but there's always something new. Along with other entries, Debbie does a "What's on the menu Wednesday" each week that covers some great recipes.

I have to note Lorri Hambuchen. I met her back in my TV days and know few who can rival her knowledge of wine. Her Conversations on Wine blog is a very informative. I've found a wealth of useful topics on her website — everything from how to buy a good wine to what to pair with it. I especially appreciate her blog on pairing wine with chocolate.
