dscf6569Kentucky is as proud as a peacock this week. We’re hosting one swell horse race and the state is in full bloom with dogwoods, azaelas, and other fine flowering trees and shrubs. Here are some highlights from some Kentucky Food Bloggers. Enjoy:

Flavors of Kentucky posted  helpful tips for hosting a Derby Party.

From My Kitchen Table posted links and actual Kentucky Derby Recipes.

The Review Lady


This photo, and the content you’re about to read, is proof there are mighty fine bloggers here in the state of Kentucky. For some reason I believe I’ve only scratched the surface of meeting and introducing more fine folks.

 Meet The Review Lady  the latest in our ongoing effort to showcase the best food bloggers in the Bluegrass.  The Review Lady stumbled upon Kentucky Food Bloggers after reading Sharon Thompson’s online column. “What a great find”, The Review Lady said.  “I am so glad that someone has created a place to discover food-related posts by Kentucky residents.”

The Review Lady and her husband live in Central Kentucky. The majority of her posts are related to recipes they have tried or restaurant and travel reviews.  The photography is quite a joy too. “I don’t use my last name anywhere on the site, since I like to maintain some anonymity for the travel/bed and breakfast reviews. ”  I certainly understand about wanting to maintain anonymity and I’m just thrilled The Review Lady found us.  If you know of any Kentucky Food Bloggers send them our way.

Enjoy The Review Lady and the other fine Kentucky Food Blogs we have highlighted so far.

Flavors of Kentucky

flavors_blog_header2Sharon Thompson, my friend and food writer for the Lexington Herald Leader, maintains a Kentucky food blog called Flavors of Kentucky. Her blog highlights what’s happening at restaurants around town, as well as cooking tips and recipes. As Sharon says, “eatin’ in and eating’ out with Sharon Thompson.”

Sharon has a beautiful cookbook by the same name, Flavors of Kentucky. (Buy the book locally – support a local bookseller.) Having just returned from a trip to Mammoth Cave National Park, what a joy to see Sharon’s book for sale in the gift shop at the hotel. That made me smile.

Visit Sharon’s blog, and have a beautiful Kentucky day!


Thanks to Sharon Thompson for her Tidbit about this blog in today’s Lexington Herald Leader. I’m collecting names and blogs and plan to showcase the best food blogs in the Bluegrass. There’s much about food to share in our great state of Kentucky

From My Kitchen Table

dscf7230Maggie writes a blog, From My Kitchen Table, from her perch high a top a stool at her chop and chat,  in Northern Kentucky. Her blog shares stories, cooking tips, recipes, and her weekly “What We Ate Last Week” review of dinners she cooked (or if she didn’t cook she says so) for her troops. A regular columnist for Inside Your Town, and a freelance cookbook editor, Maggie’s blog is sure to inspire.

Yesterday we received a mention on Bluegrass Moms. My secret hope, of course, is we also receive some links to some tasty Kentucky Food Blogs. Time will tell….
