Best Southern Food Blogs

There's a reason that everyone loves Southern food, whether your roots are in the South or not. Actually, there are a lot of reasons, including the profound sense of place that Southern chefs bring to their recipes. The welcoming vibe coming from most Southern kitchens doesn't hurt either.

But we think the list of reasons why people love Southern food begins with the incredible flavors you'll find in Southern cuisine.

Many popular recipes are rich, indulgent, and comforting. We definitely love these. After all, recipes like gooey banana cake, crispy fried chicken, and fresh buttery biscuits are basically heaven on a plate. However, even simpler (and healthier) Southern recipes always seem to burst with personality. We're thinking of things like collard greens and barbecued chicken. Most people don't think "exciting" when they think chicken and veggies, but Southern cuisine transforms even everyday recipes into something with panache, personality, and that sense of coziness that everyone loves.

So, with so much to love about Southern food, we we wanted to direct you to some of our favorite Southern food bloggers!

This list is basically a treasure map for people who want to find great Southern recipes. These Southern food blogs feature amazing meal ideas, plus you'll get to read about the passion that these bloggers have for Southern food and for all of the other traditions that come along with it. For example, many of the chefs on this list find a strong connection to their families and their communities through their Southern cooking. Reading about those personal connections is what makes food writing, and especially food blogging, so special!

So, without further ado, please read on for the 10 Best Southern Recipe Blogs! And if there's a blogger that you think we've missed, please drop us a line in the comments below. We're always thrilled to discover more greatness in the blogging community.

Syrup & Biscuits

Born and raised in Alabama, Jackie Garvin didn't let her move to Tampa, Florida get in the way of celebrating her Southern heritage. In fact, she took the change of scenery as a motivation to share her roots with her family, and we are certainly glad she transformed it all into a blog that she shares with the world. On Syrup & Biscuits you'll find comforting Southern food classics, plus plenty of family-friendly dishes you can make any night of the week.
