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.

Who: Paula Jones, a mother of three based in Raleigh, North Carolina
Why we love this blog: Panettone bread pudding, lobster risotto, chianti gelato — Jones is a master of all things Italian. That means pizzas, pastas and homemade sauces abound on this site, but you’ll also find instructions on some lesser-known dishes. Plus, if you enjoy an adult drink when the day is done, there simply isn’t anything better than Jones’ limoncello recipe. Even if you’re not fond of tastes from the boot-shaped country, Bell’alimento also provides a mix of non-Italian recipes, along with travel dispatches and updates on Jones’ life in North Carolina.
