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: Jonna Warnke, a mother of four based in Idaho Falls, Idaho
Why we love this blog: Jonna has one goal: to provide “impressive recipes made simple.” She’s doing a darn good job. Get Off Your Butt and Bake demystifies baking for home chefs who need a boost of confidence and supplies crowd-pleasing recipes, like these PomPlum strawberry jamble shortbread bars. (Those bars have opened up our eyes to the miracles of cooking with pomegranate juice). Warnke’s blog is brimming with gut-busting dessert recipes, but she’s also got quite a few casseroles, slow cooker dishes and savory meals up her sleeve.
