I've been spending a lot of time perusing food blogs lately, particularly the ones with a Southern bent, and I've been happily surprised by the diversity, scope, and sophistication of the offerings. Whereas some food magazines and recipe-sharing sites often spend the pre-July 4th days focusing on flag cakes and watermelon fruit baskets (all noble pursuits, mind you, and perfect for the occasion), the Southern food blogerati give readers a little something extra and unexpected–the history of sweet tea, for instance (Hushpuppy Nation), or tips on making fried pickle chips on the grill (Biscuits and Such). Here's a round-up of my 10 favorite Southern food blogs, in no particular order, plus a source for finding more.

1. A Southern Grace

2. Biscuits and Such

3. Homesick Texan

4. Slim Pickins Pork

5. Mama's Southern Cooking Blog

6. Sinful Southern Sweets

7. Potlikkery

8. New Orleans Cuisine

9. The South Will Rise (Note: This blog hasn't been updated recently, but it's still a great recipe source.)

10. Deep South Dish
