I'm always on the lookout for new, delicious recipes. Even with a large collection of cookbooks, sometimes it's nice just to be able to do a search by cuisine, type of dish or even ingredients. While Epicurious is one of my all-time favorite online sources for meal ideas, I've recently found myself pulling a lot more inspiration from blogs. So for today's Blog About It, I present two of my favorites, both of which happen to showcase delicious food from the comfort of tiny urban kitchens: Smitten Kitchen and Everybody Likes Sandwiches.
Smitten Kitchen, not only knows a thing or two about cooking, but she does so from a 42-square-foot, circa-1935 half-galley kitchen in New York City. At yet, somehow, she manages to cook and take gorgeous photographs of some truly tasty meals.

And then there's the Jeannette, of Everybody Likes Sandwiches, who also manages to make magic out of a tiny space, this time, in Vancouver.
