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 »

Why we love this blog: Confessions of a Cookbook Queen is nothing but fun, fun, fun. Dedicated exclusively to the sweeter side of life, this bake-centric blog will keep you in treats like red velvet marshmallow bars, turtle pie in a jar, and pretzel s’mores until your sweet tooth taps out. Kristan also gets an A+ for presentation. Somehow even the stickiest, messiest desserts wind up looking like edible works of art. In addition to dessert recipes, Kristan will also keep you full of ideas on how to make your dishes look like they came from a professional.
