97. Eclectic Recipes
Who: Angie McGowan, mother of one living in Orlando, Florida
Why we love this blog: Hailed by The Pioneer Woman, Steamy Kitchen, and iVillage, McGowan’s blog has garnered quite a following because it consistently provides high-quality recipes that won’t take days to make. She’s well aware of the time and budget constraints of being a parent, so get ready to encounter low-cost meals you can make in a flash. Babble favorites include McGowan’s apple butter pumpkin pie and creamy roasted beet pasta, the latter of which has become one of the easiest ways to trick our kids into eating their veggies.
