Our favorite food bloggers inspire us to cook at home and make us hungry every day. We wanted to know them a little better. So we’re getting together to chat all throughout the Holidays!
We first learned about Lindsay Landis through her quest to develop the ultimate raw cookie dough recipe, and her subsequent Cookie Dough Lovers Cookbook. Discovering Love & Olive Oil, the food blog she co-authors with her husband Taylor, only endeared us to Lindsay even more. Read on for her answers to our holiday food questions…
What’s your favorite dish to bring to a holiday potluck?
Dessert. When given a choice I will always bring dessert. Something like these s’mores tarts or spicy cookie dough truffles would be sure crowd-pleasers. One of my personal favorites, the Avalanche Bars, are super easy to throw together last minute.
Sweet Potatoes vs. Mashed Potatoes?
Mashed. With a ton of garlic, cream, and butter. Unless it’s dessert, then sweet, baked into a pie or cupcakes.
Favorite weird holiday leftover meal?
I’ll tell you Thanksgiving has always been one of our favorite holidays, and the leftovers are a bit part of that. My favorite way to use them is what I call a “Thanksgiving Sandwich”, with turkey, potatoes, gravy, and cranberry sauce between two slices of bread. Strange, perhaps, but incredibly delicious. We also usually freeze a bunch of turkey to make mini pot pies later on as well.
What’s another blog that inspires your food POV?
If I’m looking for inspiration I need not go further than Todd & Diane of White on Rice. They are two of the most positive, inspiring people I have the honor of knowing. Just looking at their images and reading their stories makes me want to be a better blogger and person overall
