Julie of Julip Made is still a bit of a mystery to us, but here's what we do know: she loves her dog, makes wonderful collages, and takes excellent food photos. Her blog is a well-rounded examination of the beauty of everyday life and includes, among other things, food posts with recipes that always appear so appetizing. We love the intuitive sense of design found in her frequent (and frequently inspiring) collages. Julie also has a regular series called "If Bloggers Ruled The World" where she interviews prominent bloggers to get their opinions on all sorts of subjects. You could curl up to your laptop and read this blog for hours.

Emily Hilliard makes pie, the seemingly simple baked good, into an intellectual exercise. Her day job is working as a Folklorist in Washington DC, so her intellectual approach and interest in the intersection between pie and community is no surprise. As she explains on her About Us page, nothing-in-the-house is the name of a type of pie popular during the Great Depression, and it means exactly what you think: "there's nothing in the house, so we need to use whatever ingredients are available to make this pie". Emily, along with Tanglewood Baked Goods author Kari, also forms the pie-making super duo Tarts by Tarts, a DC based group that creates baked goods for events and delivery. If you are an aspiring baker, nothing-in-the-house not only features great recipes, but also detailed instructions on how to make these pies happen; a great read!
