Dinner wouldn’t be nearly as fun without these culinary pioneers to blaze the trail. This year’s list of food blogging mamas, curated with the help of our esteemed panel, includes both internet superstars and virtual unknowns, amateurs and James Beard Award-winning chefs. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry, but all will make you hungry for more innovative meal ideas. You’ll find no shortage of healthy recipes, genius cooking shortcuts, or quick dinners for those nights when you’re just too tired to spend hours in the kitchen. Our hats are off to these top chefs who work hard to make mealtime memorable — and easy — for busy parents everywhere.— Chris Couchsee the full list »

31. Baked Bree
Who: Bree Hester, a mom of two sons and one daughter in Virginia
Why we love this blog: Bree blew our minds this year with her recipe for bacon jam (yeah, you read that right), but that’s just one of many surprisingly delicious recipes on this site. This cooking blog covers everything from cocktails (including fancy schmancy Jello shots) to condiments, but the best part is Hester’s collection of recipes you can make with your little ones. Getting children in the kitchen and excited about making treats like healthy berry popsicles and frozen bananas can get them started with cooking young.
