14 Resources for Foodies

I cut out processed foods a while ago and I definitely wouldn't go back. Since I started venturing into cooking more often, I've been (and am still) on the lookout for handy resources.


This is a new one, but already one of my favorites. Each new month, Free People delivers a list of produces in season, along with gorgeous photos by Julie Lee. January's list can be found here (yay for blood oranges!).
I also use the Eat Seasonably calendar. It's a bit less comprehensive (and less pretty), but it's a truly handy tool. You can either use the interactive wheel calendar, or download a printable version (perfect to put on the fridge).


Everest's Kitchen Cheat Sheet is amazingly helpful. Above is just a small portion- the full cheat sheet covers metric conversion, meat cuts, cooking times, storage, and freezer storage times, all available in printable versions at the bottom of the page.


Williams-Sonoma salad chart makes it so easy to mix and match! Also love the recipes in their "30 days of salads" roundup.


I don't drink wine, and I don't know anything about it, so this Basic Wine Guide infographic comes handy when I have guests. I especially use the "wine with food" section, that helps you selecting a wine to pair with your meal.

  • Vitamins cheat sheet: what they do and which foods they are in
These are my favorite and the ones I use the most often. Do you have some go-to resources to share? If you do, I'd love to add them to the list!

Edited to add:

Tam from Spinster Snacks mentioned Local Harvest in the comments. This website helps you find farmers' markets, family farms, and other sources of sustainably grown food in your area!

  9. That is a beutifull and USEFULL post. Thank you!!! We are so much more into cooking now and we are trying to avoid sugars and flour and pasta....it's difficult! But the more veggies you eat the easier it gets. Add intead of taking away.

  10. This is so helpful! When it comes to cooking I often find very interesting recipes but I forget the conversion differences, so this is definitely helpful. I would recommend this to everyone who is a beginner.
    I really love the wine part because having all the information about different types of wine in my head is sometimes very hard, so this "cheat sheet" is really great! I'm looking forward to print this out and put it in my kitchen, so I can look at it from time to time, while cooking.

  13. Great post. I already knew that I should eat more in season but this was a great reminder and that chart is great and that info about how long to cook vegetables is really helpful. Hopefully I won't be overcooking my veggies anymore, thanks to you.

  29. It is very important to have good equipment in the kitchen to make cooking easier. But you also might need a quality rice cooker. The Zojirushi rice cookers are one of the best things you can get for your kitchen. In addition they have different types of Zojirushi rice cookers accommodating any kitchen size.
