NOTE: this blog post is no longer updated and only shows food blogs that were active in 2017. Check here for the new list of food blogs for weeknight quick dinner ideas.
I tried to find good existing lists of all food blogs that are focusing on easy and quick weeknight recipes but could not find any good ones. Decided then to do my own list of such blogs.
Food blogs exist for almost any niche, but the most interesting for me and probably also you as reader is to find new recipes that are quick and easy so that you can find something new for your weeknight dinners. Another factor that is appreciated is if the recipes does not contain rare ingredients that you most likely don’t have at home. Another advantage is if the recipes does not yield plenty of dirty pans and pots. That the meals should be yummy is of course a given, but harder to judge since we all have different taste and preferences.
Criteria for getting on this list:
- Should be active now
- Need a simple and clear design
- Need to have good photos
- The focus of the blog should be weeknight recipes
- or at least have a category of meals that are quick and easy
- In English
Some might argue that categories such as freezer friendly, slow cooker meals and meal prep also belongs to the weeknight dinner category and should be included in this list. However, I had to draw the line somewhere and chose to not include those categories that require planning ahead.
The intention is to update this list continuously and also to add picture and link to a recipe from each blog.
Even though I spent quite some time finding and reviewing each site, there are most certainly blogs that I have missed and I would be very grateful if you could write which ones in the comment field so I can update the list.
