Why we love this blog: Why we love this blog: This ex-pastry chef’s recipes are undeniably delicious — check out her marcona almond carbonara if you need proof — but readers are addicted to this blog because Grant is so candid about what these recipes mean, how they fit into her home life and the emotions behind her dishes. Readers can count on getting a wide mix of sweet and savory recipes and learning about which dishes tested well among Grant’s five- and 10-year-old kids, but language here isn’t always G-rated. Come prepared to handle raw ingredients and emotion.
