Independent Iowa Food Blogs – Part 1

I thought I’d provide some links to some independent Iowa food blogs. I am calling this “Part 1” as I have another list I can’t get my hands on right now which has a bunch of other fine blogs. I am not listing (at least not in this posting) restaurants, professional writers, and blogs that have no active twitter feed or updated blog postings. This is not a review of these blogs. Enjoy.

  1. Thanks so much for the mention! Wondering if you could do me a little favor? Due to a series of events, I lost the domain “” and have since gone back to “” Wondering if you are able to change that in your post? I would be most grateful! Thanks, Herman
