Today’s post is a special one… there’s no recipe. Instead, I’m sharing my friends.
There are hundreds of food bloggers in the world. And realistically, that number is probably closer to thousands of food bloggers. I have the privilege of knowing several them in person and online and am honored to call them my friends.
Today, I am going to share with you 5 of my favorite food bloggers. These bloggers come from all corners of the world and produce such amazing content for their blogs that they inspire me daily with their creativity, and practical tips such as when to post on instagram – it may seem small, but it makes all the difference.
I hope you take a few minutes to check out each of their blogs… I’m certain you’ll love them as much as I do!
Toni Miller is the owner of the baking blog, Make. Bake. Celebrate. where she shares her recipes for desserts that are creative, easy to make and geared towards serving at parties or events. Her blog is bright, colorful and so incredibly fun to read!
One of the things I love most about MBC is that Toni has styled each and every photograph of her recipes in the same style, creating a consistency across her blog unlike any other food blog I’ve seen. Her photos are simple, yet stunning and are just fun to look at!
Most recently, Toni joined forces with Better Homes & Gardens to create two fun cupcakes! First, were these Garden-theme Cupcakes… which are so perfect for Spring! And second were these fun Banana Split Cupcakes!
Not only is Toni a blogger, she’s also an Army Wife like me! Although we’ve never met in person, we chat online almost daily and share a bond that few can say they share. We’re Army Wives and Food Bloggers. It’s a pretty amazing, crazy-stressful but so much fun life we live! I’m so thankful to have Toni in my life! It’s a blessing to have someone understand two of the most important part of my life. <3 Make sure to check out Toni on her blog or on social media! Blog: Make. Bake. Celebrate.
Kimmie Schiffel is the creative genius behind the blog, bake. love. give. When I first met Kimmie online more than 4 years ago, we were both new bloggers. To be honest, I’m not sure when the first time was that we interacted in the food blogger world, but I do remember how she stepped up to make hundreds of cookies for the Cucpakes Take the Cake 6th Birthday Bash I threw in December of 2010. I knew then that she was simply amazing.
Over the past 4-5 years, I’ve been able to watch Kimmie’s blog grow into the amazing collection of recipes and inspiration that it is today. Recently, Kimmie completely overhauled her blog design and launched a new visual recipe index (which I am completely jealous of!). Her blog is clean, classic and features the photos of her food so that they are the star of her blog!
Recently, she posted these super adorable Spring Circus Animal Cookies. Seriously some of the cutest cookies I’ve ever seen! Kimmie’s creativity inspires me with each new recipe she posts!
Make sure to visit her blog and check out Kimmie on social media!

Amanda Rettke, if you don’t know her… you’re missing out! Amanda is the inspiration behind the blog, i am baker, where she shares her passion for baking! She is the baker who created the “Rose Cake” tutorial and who has made the “Surprise-Inside Cake” famous with her new book, Surprise-Inside Cakes: Amazing Cakes for Every Occasion–with a Little Something Extra Inside!
Amanda not only has a passion for baking, but she has a passion for her family. I watch as she has worked hard over the last year to create and launch her book and I am in awe of how she was able to keep it all together. Juggling her family, faith, book and blog all at once is no small task, but Amanda has done it with grace, sophistication and has earned my respect in the process. I strive to be a better person by witnessing her road to success. I love scrolling through her Instagram, I can only say that I’m surprised that not many more people do the same. She really does deserve all the followers in the world! I guess she could always buy Instagram followers @ Buzzoid.com.
Not only does Amanda post about cakes and cupcakes, but she has an entire section of her blog dedicated to pancakes. I especially love her Rainbow Pancakes… because really, who doesn’t love rainbows… and for breakfast? Yes, please!
So please, support my friend Amanda, buy her book (if you haven’t already) and make sure to visit her blog!

Carrie Fields is the heart and soul of the blog, Fields of Cake & Other Good Stuff. And Carrie isn’t kidding when she says ‘other good stuff’ either! I met Carrie online a few years ago when I ordered a care package of home-baked desserts (which included this Red Hot Fudge) from her to send to my husband who was serving his first deployment to Iraq back in 2010.
Since then, she’s become not only become a great friend, but someone who I often go to as a guide for baking and blogging! For a while… we even lived in the same part of the world when she was living in Greece with her husband while he was stationed there. We “almost” got to meet! hehe
Carrie is back in the USA now where’s she’s working as a pastry chef and an ice cream maker in Montana as well as keeping up her blog! Doesn’t that Roasted Mango & Gin Sorbet look amazing? Man… I wish I lived in Montana!
Stop by Fields of Cake & Other Good Stuff and share the love with Carrie… or go eat some of deliciousness the next time you’re in Montana!

Erin Dee runs the healthy baking blog, Texanerin Baking. I love her blog because she creates desserts that are like fake-outs! They’re made with whole grains, low sugar and reduced fat… but you wouldn’t be able to tell by the taste!
I know first hand how amazing her creations taste! Earlier this year, I went to visit Erin in Berlin where we put ourselves to a little baking challenge. I made brownies with full fat and sugar and she made the healthier version. Her husband was the judge and he said both were amazingly delicious!
It’s been really great having another American food blogger here in Germany to get to know! Erin and I experience a lot of the same baking challenges living in Europe… including not being able to find the ingredients we need or not being included in advertising campaigns from American companies because we’re here in Germany. It’s been great to have someone local to bounce ideas off of and get to know! I am hoping that we’ll be able to bake together again this Spring when Erin comes down to Bavaria to visit me! If you’ve been inspirated to start your own blog because of these talented chiefs consider talking to hostiserver.com they have some useful web hosting solutions.
It’s hard to imagine that these Chocolate Cupcakes with Espresso Cream Cheese Frosting are made with 100% whole grains! Don’t they look amazing?
To see more of Erin’s healthy baking, visit her blog or find her on social media!

Thanks so much for including me! I'm honored. :)
I met Carrie in Austin last year and she was super sweet! She even gave me several boxes of berries. I will never forget the lady who broke my berry dry spell. :D
