A lot of people cook while bored, and uh, I think we’re ALL bored at this point. So open up that pantry, locate your ingredients, and then check out the archives of some of my favorite DC cooking blogs for inspiration. All written by fabulous DC ladies, these three blogs are my go-to spots when I’m looking for a recipe. And since all the authors live in DC, I love the first-hand accounts of farmer’s markets and grocery stores I can go to myself.

Olga over at Mango Tomato whips up some delicious cookies, but that stack of mozzerella and beets looks divine. You should be so lucky to have beets and cheese in your fridge.

Looking for something to bake? Jenna at Modern Domestic has you covered. She’s got some lovely suggestions of sweet treats to bake in snopocolypse, some of them look good enough that I might be willing to trudge to the store to pick up the necessary ingredients.

Last but not least, one of the first cooking blogs I discovered in DC, The Arugula Files, never lets me down. Mary is fun, smart and savvy, and her cooking is as well. Her blood orange salsa sounds fresh and tasty!

So get to clickin’, and then get to cookin’, I expect a full report of what you made in the comments.

Katie moved to DC in 2007, and has since embarked upon a love affair with the city. She’s an education reform advocate and communications professional during the day; at night and on the weekends, she’s an owner here at We Love DC. Katie has high goals to eat herself through the entire city, with only her running shoes to save her from herself. For up-to-the-minute news and reviews (among other musings), follow her on Twitter!

  1. Awww, thanks for the shout-out! Yesterday I made banana muffins/cupcakes with lemon sour-cream frosting – along with a bazillion cookie I’m selling for V-day.

    Hope you’re keeping safe and warm.

  2. Haha, I’ve spent the last two weekend slowly filling my fridge up with food. Last weekend was a chicken, preserved lemon and olive tagine, eggplant and chickpea curry, and a fennel and preserved lemon confit for eating with oily fish. This weekend, homemade mac and cheese and stewed apples.
