Sarah Gim runs the super popular food site Tastespotting.com.

Tastespotting is the spot to find beautiful collections of food from all over the internet.  It’s links, it’s community.  It’s completely drool worthy.

Tastespotting is always filled with new, pretty food!

The Delicious Life is Sarah’s personal recipe ad restaurant blog that I’ve been stalking since 2007.

Awesome recipes.  Totally relevant restaurant reviews.  A tiny little chihuahua dog.. and once, a video that I totally stalked the heck out of.

Sarah Gim loves things like:


White on Rice Couple

Steamy Kitchen

and Gourmet Live.

 photographs from Los Angeles Times, I Am Koream, The Delicious Life, and Tastespotting.

    Oh goody, a new WATBF – can’t wait to listen!

  • Jennifer February 13, 2012 at 1:10 pm

    Joy! You’re coming to Seattle in June? Can we hang out?

    Love tastespotting, I always introduce it to friends as food porn! I have been a visitor/viewer for so long now! Keep it up!

    can’t wait to listen! sarah and i have a bunch of friends in common (just like you and me, joy!) but have never actually met. and i don’t think she has a clue who i am, anyway…

    This was my favorite “We’re About to Be Friends” yet! I love Tastespotting, and have no bad feelings towards Sara for rejecting me 95% of the time :) It just makes me want to improve! I think I’ve managed to get 6 or 7 photos accepted, and I can’t help but do a little happy dance every time it happens!

    Awesome podcast! I have been obsessed with Tastespotting for awhile and get lots of my recipe ideas from that site – so clean and easy to navigate and it lets the food pics shine without all the clutter.

    She sounds like such a lovely person, and turning down photos is just a part of the job to make the site as beautiful as it can be. I totally respect that :)

  • Lindsay @ The Live-In Kitchen February 15, 2012 at 11:39 am

    Great podcast! I love the feeling of getting a photo accepted to Tastespotting, I’m glad that feeling doesn’t diminish when you’re as big a deal as JTB! Love you ladies.

    Hi Joy,
    This podcast is fresh! Such a great idea–you ask great questions. When The Pioneer Woman got her show on Food Network, I was so hoping she’d have you and other bloggers on to cook or bake with her-maybe that’s in the works. In the meantime, I hope you interview her! Also, I love your healthy food posts as much as your baked goods–I just bought edamame to make edamame toasts for lunch tomorrow :)

  • Emily April 20, 2012 at 2:05 pm

    I didn’t even know about this site before. Thanks!

  • Kei May 7, 2012 at 3:45 pm

    Joy… you said you did WATBF with Tsh few weeks ago… I can’t wait to listen to it! Pretty please…

  • Katie dB May 11, 2012 at 3:01 am

    You mentioned in your other podcast about a new podcast waiting… can’t wait.
    Greetings from the Netherlands!

  • Megan @ Newly Wife July 29, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    I love this podcast as well at JTB & Shutz. I hope there is more to come!

  • Shelby August 16, 2012 at 11:52 am

    This was really neat… I feel like I got to know you both through the interview! Great, insightful questions…thank you for sharing!

  • Kat August 28, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    Enjoyed this podcast, but thought it was ironic that when I went to her site (had heard of it, but never been) I was bombarded with a musical Ben & Jerrys ad that was really annoying. Especially after she had said something about sites with music. Ugh, not classy. I know the ads pay the bills, but I don’t have to like it.

    Otherwise she sounds charming and the site is lovely, looks like it could easily suck hours out of my day. Thanks for introducing her to me!

    Joy, we’re missing this podcast :( Isn’t it time to make some new friends?

  • April mae November 7, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    I agree with the comment above! Joy you need to make more friends–at least in the public eye–err ear rather

  • Chineka @ Savorthebaking November 14, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    Joy, I enjoyed listening to this podcast and hearing from the creator of taste spotting. 8-)

  • Sarah @ The Cyclist's Wife March 7, 2013 at 10:00 am

    I just got my first pic accepted to Tastespotting and was thrilled. Glad to know Joy feels the same way!

  • Evelyn May 19, 2013 at 5:53 am

    Such a shame that there haven’t been any new podcasts for such a long time! :(

  • Marie June 20, 2013 at 1:52 am

    Joy, I hope you keep on making these podcasts! I love listening!
