Big fan of Serious Eats myself, although it's been a while since I caught up on my food blog reading.

Also a big fan of the kitchn: http://www.thekitchn.com/

Finally got around to starting a homebrewing blog: The Hop Whisperer

Kenji is the only guy I regularly read on SeriousEats. Marc at NoRecipes is usually my go-to if I can't think of something to eat for dinner. His Kimchi Jigae recipe is so insanely good. We probably make it every other week or so.

I like Kenji's approach on sausage grilling:

I've found an additional approach where they'll initially get placed on top of the other meats grilling until they warm up and then they get direct heat towards the end. So I don't put the sausage on until everything else is nearly finished. About 20 minutes.

Much like brewing, in cooking it seems technique matters much more than recipes. I hate food blogs that just have a recipe and a finished dish. I love Kenji's blog because he shows you how to do it, how not to do it, and some of the reasoning behind it.

I also love Good Eats, Test Kitchen, and Cook's Country for the same reasons.

I agree that technique is much more important than any single recipe. With technique(s) you don't need a recipe really. Just available ingredients.

I only use recipes when baking or when making a dish that I haven't made before. After that, I just run with my own palate and imagination.
