best_orange_county_blogsWelcome to Blog Spotted in Orange County. Every Friday, we invite you to link up the best posts (you’ve written or read) by bloggers living, dreaming & blogging away, right here in the OC. With so many fantastic & incredible blogs written by our very own Orange County locals, we’ve decided that we needed to celebrate & recognize more than once a year. This will this be a fantastic way to reward & recognize the blogs with the best weekly blog posts in the OC, & hopefully we might get introduced to some new blogs that we might never have discovered.

Last week’s inaugural edition introduced us to tons of amazing local bloggers that we’ve now added to our daily list of must-reads. & While all the posts were fabulous, here are some of our favorites, that YOU definitely must read!

* This Mama Makes Stuff: Her First 5K – Mom’s (who just happens to be literally weeks away from delivering baby number 4) recount of her 8 year old daughter’s first 5K

* ain’t yo mamas blog: Q&A with Jason Quinn of the Lime Truck – if you haven’t jumped on the food truck craze yet, after this interview you will. & The recipe at the end? It has me trying to lick the computer screen.

* Picky Palate: Gooey Pumpkin Butterscotch Brownies – Speaking of licking the computer screen, these brownies are to-die-for!

* The Mom Blog: Making Pumpkin Pie play-dough – The perfect answer to “what are we going to do today?”

* Tiny Oranges: Food Allergies, Bye Bye Milk & Eggs – How would you handle the news that your child was allergic to everything & anything with milk & eggs?

So, wasn’t that fun? 5 super-fantastic-totally-amazing-local-orange-county-blogs, that may (or may not be) totally & completely new (to you, that is).  So… link up the best blog posts written by local-ish Orange County bloggers in the past week, or so. Feel free to link to any post that you think is worthy of being Blog Spotted (heck! You could even link to of one of your own, we won’t tell.) & Be on the look out, because next week we will be featuring the best of the best. Ready? Set? Go….
