Cathy Chaplin got it just right when she described the problem with food blogs.
“I look at food blogs, pretty much every day, and lots of them, and I’m always thinking, ‘I want to eat that,’ ” said Danh, who writes at Gastronomy Blog.
So, she and Laurie Moore of the blog G-ma’s Bakery decided to make at least some of those alluring photos real and available to all comers. They have organized Eat My Blog, a monster bake sale to benefit the L.A. Regional Food Bank.
“It seemed silly to have people make all that food and eat it without a cause,” Chaplin said.
