Last week I wrote about some of my favorite photography related blogs, I hope the list was helpful to everyone. Photography is not my only interest, so, this week, I thought I would note some of the blogs I regularly read that are not photo related (though they often include some very nice images).
Today I’ll talk about blogs from some great writers from metro Detroit.
I enjoy cooking but I am not terribly creative at the stove so I need ideas and recipes. One great source is The Cultured Cook. Lisa concentrates on healthy and affordable meals with an emphasis on taste and flair. She presents recipes, book reviews and articles about any food related theme. This is a great place to get a recipe or just read about the importance of natural and locally grown foods. Go here to get ideas for your next meal.

What to do, where to go. A great place for suggestions is the Urbane Life Blog. Started as an attempt to create an on-line community for a group of apartment building, the blog has become a source for information and entertainment for a wider community. Written by a group of talented and diverse contributors Urbane Life covers events, restaurants, life in the D and occasionally, political issues.

Last but not least is Detroit Moxie, a blog about Detroit written with such love and enthusiasm that you will want to come back time after time. Becks grew up in metro Detroit and has recently returned after a stint living in England. Becks writes about events and places but the best articles are about her deep love of Detroit and its people. She presents the metro area as vibrant, exciting and cool. All of us who live here thank Becks for reminding us how great this town is.
