Who: Meredith Steele, a mother of one daughter in Dallas, Texas
Why we love this blog: Steele’s site is a family blog all the way. Focusing on the daily triumphs and tribulations of parenting as well as the awesome meals that can come out of it, Steele’s blog is packed with recipes that both parents and kids can enjoy. One of the many reasons we love In Sock Monkey Slippers is Steele’s dedication to providing healthy versions of foods that traditionally aren’t so good for you, like these raisin and sweet potato muffins. A good way to get started is by glancing through the site’s most popular recipes. Trust us, the peach cake with honey cognac icing is as good as it sounds.
