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 »

88. Hungry Food Love
Who: Melissa Bailey, a mother of one based in Rochester, New York
Why we love this blog: Melissa doesn’t just want to feed her family … she wants to feed everyone’s family. Hailing from the Dominican Republic, her blog chronicles her “gastronomic self-discovery” by offering recipes that incorporate lots of Latin ingredients and techniques along with her own personal twist, like these teriyaki-glazed sweet plantains and her cuter-than-cute mini empanadas. Bailey also uses her blog as a way to spread awareness about those who live in hunger in the Dominican Republic.
