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 »

Who: Amanda Niehaus, a mother of one based in Brisbane, Australia
Why we love this blog: Niehaus is a writer first, cook second, but that doesn’t mean you should skip over her recipes. You’d be missing out on treats like chai oatmeal with zucchini and sweet potato and her scrumptious coconut waffles with banana and mango jam, all of which incorporate awesome organic fare. Niehaus’ voice is what brings readers here time and time again. A cancer survivor who is just as comfortable laying down food guidelines as she is discussing the ins and outs of chemotherapy, Niehaus blogs from the heart and leaves a lasting impression on those who land here.
