1.  Chef Mimi Blog

Chef Mimi is a talented cook with roots in France and a very French passion for great food!  Her blog explores the world’s cuisines from the perspective of a home cook who wants to present her friends and family with extraordinary meals.  Whether you love food and cooking, or are just learning your way around the kitchen, her blog will become a staple of your “foodie diet”.

2.  Mama Miyuki Easy Pantsy

Great eclectic Indonesian recipes for the home cook.  If you love Southeast Asian food, you won’t want to miss Mama Miyuki’s accessible, every day recipes and suggestions.

3.  Krishna’s Pictures and Notes

A blogger from Indonesia who happens to travel to spots that are a bit off the beaten track (at least for me).  His photos are stunning and are complemented by lots of interesting background information and insights about the locations (including lodging advice for those who might wish to visit).  A terrific read!

4.  Life:  A Scot in Norway

This delightful blog chronicles the travels and adventures of a young Scot living in Norway.  He chronicles the changes of seasons and the history and landmarks of his new homes through his lens.

5.  Namita’s Kitchen

Namita is a young mother who generously shares her classic, time-tested Indian recipes with home cooks.   Since I have lived in India and have tons of Indian cookbooks, I have particularly appreciated Namita’s regional dishes which are homey, accessible and delicious.  I am also eternally grateful to her for giving me the idea of making a cake in a pressure cooker (don’t ask:-).

6.  What an Amazing World!

This fascinating blogger is based in Jakarta, but he travels the globe, photographing and eloquently sharing his journeys.  I look forward to his posts because they are always filled with lots of little historic tidbits that pique my curiosity and make me dream of following in his footsteps.

7.  Life Out of the Box

This enterprising young couple uprooted their comfortable lives in the US to move to Nicaragua and establish a socially conscious business.  They are now having the time of their lives giving back to their base community of Masaya, Nicaragua.  Through their blog, you too can follow their exciting journey, with all of its ups, downs and humorous moments.  This couple gives me hope for a brighter future.

  1. Thank you so much for nominating me for the Liebster Award! I’ve been following you and your family for a while and am so intrigued by your adventurous spirit! Thank you for the write-up! Happy travels!

  2. It seems this award has been going around a lot lately, I was recently nominated too! But I’m really glad for it – I was in a bit of a blogging funk and it helped me to move past it. Plus, it’s fun to read everyone else’s responses to the questions that get posted! I especially like seeing what other blogs get nominated – sometimes it’s hard to find blogs that are just starting out.
