That’s not an easy question for me, mainly because it’s changing all the time. For consumer stuff, I like consumerist.com, Consumer Reports Online, ConsumerWorld.org and a blog at the New York Times called Bucks. A friend just told me about David Lazarus who writes consumer stories for the LA Times in the business section. That’s something new for me.
For things like recipes and scoops on new restaurants, I have two favorites. One is tablehopper.com, where you can read all the latest on the Bay Area restaurant scene. It’s a newsletter, and then for pretty healthy recipes, I subscribe to 101 Cookbooks. The photos on the site make your mouth water. I’m eager to try the limoncello macaroons one of these days.
Lastly, it goes without saying that I’ve found some amazing shopping sites. I like to find the unusual and I’m a big fan of handcrafted goods. I rarely buy anything, but I love to spend time looking on etsy.com. They even have a section where you can put a project out for bid. Go see for yourself.
