Who: Lucy Lean, a mother of one son and one daughter based in Hollywood Hills, California
Why we love this blog: Her name may be Lucy Lean, but don’t let the name fool you. This cookbook author, former MasterChef food judge, and former editor of edible LA loves dessert just as much as you do. Lean’s blog highlights her own culinary creations, many of which are of the American/European persuasion, as well as that of some of the most accomplished pro chefs in the country. Chef interviews, travel posts, and killer photography are the hallmarks of this site.
