About a month ago, a friend and I were exchanging rapid-fire, chatty, one-line e-mails. At the end of one, I pasted a link to a baking blog, thereby bringing the conversation to a sharp stop.
An hour later, a happy e-mail popped up. My friend, without an ounce of hesitation, admitted, "I got completely lost in that blog."
The very best blogs will have that effect, transforming a curious reader into a dedicated follower determined to click through each and every last archived entry.
Here's a roundup of notable food blogs including the aforementioned baking blog (warning, you may want to turn off the television and unplug the phone before proceeding any further).
