A whole Mac porting series here, well written and quite funny:

An old-ish blog but still very relevant and useful:

I don't think this one has been mentioned yet. I think pluralsight is a paid subscription based system, but the tutorial looks like it covers a lot of info for beginners and may be helpful to someone. Note, I have not tried these myself but a guy on stack overflow said they are helpful (see comments on the question).

I've been doing a development blog series at http://monogamey.com following the development of a cross platform multi-player networked casual game.

Its been about a week since I've posted a new one as I've been working on some code for it but I should have the next installment up by monday.
