Arkansas is filled with some great food and drink bloggers. Each month on AY Magazine, we’d like to do a round-up post featuring all the wonderful writing and picture-taking going on throughout the state. If there is a blog you’d like to be featured, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Simple, straightforward recipes highlight Maruka’s blog, With a Glass of Wine, and this includes her recent post for a Ground Pork and Vegetable Shepherd’s Pie. As the blog’s name suggests, you’ll also get a wine pairing with each recipe.
Ben’s Instagram account at The Bearded Chef is a food lover’s paradise. The man knows how to cook and smoke and grill. And he’s always up to something cool.
Looking for a great local podcast? Follow Conversations Cocktails + Connections. Amy and Emily do a great job with their interviews, and as an added bonus, you get a dynamite cocktail recipe with each episode.
James of Tip Top Chew beat me to checking out the newest food truck in Central Arkansas, The Prickly Pickle. That chicken sandwich looks pretty darn good.
Here’s a beautiful (and I am sure tasty) Maple Nut Granola recipe from blogger veteran Dining with Debbie.
Are you following a Keto diet? If so, you may want to check out the recipes over on Just Leave it to Liz. There are some great suggestions.

I know you can use a good brunch recipe, especially when said recipe involves biscuits. Try making these Roasted Garlic & Red Pepper Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits from Sweet Yellow Cornbread.
Speaking of brunch, here’s another recipe, this time from The Whole Cook’s Broccoli Cheddar Frittata.
Miss Rock City, while technically not a food and drink blog, does like to touch on the subject from time to time, like this post on Top 10 Bars in Little Rock.
Kaylie and Hannah, a.k.a. The Know It Alls, are always up to something fun, and that includes food. I love how they bounce around Arkansas, covering a full spectrum of our state’s offerings. I truly think you’ll love following them if you aren’t already doing so.
I will be trying out this Smoked Salmon Dip from Double Spice.
Here is Serenity & Spice’s brilliant, comprehensive look at local beer and Girl Scout Cookie pairings at places throughout the Little Rock area.

I completely agree with The Little Rock Foodie’s take on Cinnamon Crème Bakery’s cinnamon rolls. They just don’t get any better in this area.
