Blogs, food and delicious looking pictures

It's no secret that I can spend hours reading food blogs. Bored at work? Read a food blog! Don't know what to cook and need some inspiration? READ A FOOD BLOG! Like many foodies (I'm still not sure if I like the word...but let's go ahead and use it) tastespotting.com is one of my favorites. What could be better than page after page of food pictures? And behind every picture? A link to the blog it came from! It's as if someone took the time to gather all the most amazing looking pictures from the best food blogs and neatly packaged them into one perfect little food blog. Oh wait, that's exactly what they did! Heaven.

I don't bake much. I'll make the occasional tart, or brownies or banana bread, but other than that I mostly cook. A picture of a super moist grapefruit cake convinced me to go out and stock up on flour and sugar and bake!

Yogurt+ flouer+ grapefruit zest+sugary glaze = amazingly moist, delighfully citrusy grapefruit cake!


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup plain whole-milk yogurt ( I used low-fat and it tasted just fine!)
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
3 extra-large eggs
zest of two large grapefruits
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup freshly squeezed grapefruit juice

for the glaze:
1 cup confectioner's sugar
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed grapefruit juice (i used a moreless - about 2 and a half)

original recipe found on pickycook.com


  1. mmmmm this looks delish! next time, try subbing out the oil for the same amount of applesauce - tastes the same, keeps it moist, and makes it healthier! :)
