We've said it before, and we'll say it again: Instagram was practically made for pictures of food. Gut Check has rounded up our favorite foodie accounts in St. Louis, but there are so many cool photos every week, we wanted to share what St. Louis' best chefs, bartenders and eaters are Instagramming. If you see a good one, send it to us!
1. Lovely cakes at Pint Size Bakery
We normally think of Pint Size for adorable hand pies and the famous salted caramel croissant, but the team can do couture cakes with the best of 'em.

2. Salame con nocciola at Salume Beddu
We recently started following Salume Beddu on Facebook too, much to the detriment of our wallets. The charcuterie shop and cafe posts mouth-watering offerings multiple times a day.

3. First sip at Side Project
To say Cory King's Side Project Cellar was highly anticipated would be a huge understatement. This elegantly rustic setup makes us want to head over there ASAP.

4. Count Chocula cocktail at Rooster South Grand
At first glance, this looks like a simple (but yummy) mug of hot cocoa. In reality it's even better, because it's got alcohol.

5. Eggnog crème brûlée-filled Bismarck at Vincent Van Doughnut
Doughnuts + booze + holidays = Awesome.

6. Ice cream cake at I Scream Cakes
That is not a turkey. We repeat: That is not a turkey. It's an ice cream cake!

9. Pumpkin cranberry quinoa salad.
As @ninjakitchen1 explains, you don't want to leave your gluten-free, vegan or lactose intolerant friends in the lurch.
Don't insult your vegan, celiac or lactose intolerant guests by not having anything for them to eat this Thanksgiving! This "Pumpkin Cranberry Quinoa Salad" will help. #vegan #vegetarian #thanksgiving #eatclean #healthy #healthfood #foodblog #foodpics #quinoa #fall #autumn #cranberry #salad #pumpkin #ontheblognow

10. Onion tart at Sidney Street Bistro
We were surprised by an onion tart, too -- but damn if that doesn't look and sound delicious.
Art or the onion #tart at Sidney Street? Caramelized onions with goat cheese and Parmesan cream, green onion purée, pearl onions, charred leeks, young garlic, onion glass, buttermilk glass, spanish olives
