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 »

52. Our Best Bites
Who: Sara Wells, a mother of three based in Boise, Idaho, and Kate Jones, a mom of three based in Pineville, Louisiana
Why we love this blog: The authors of Our Best Bites: Mormon Moms in the Kitchen and Savoring the Seasons with Our Best Bites have honorary PhDs (in our book) in the art of providing fast and healthy meals that busy parents can make without stress. On top of offering time-saving ideas like lightning-fast Chinese orange beef, this blog also offers clear, vivid photos so you know exactly how things should look every step of the way. A special kudos goes to Sara and Kate for their post on how to make a bacon bouquet. You’ll never look at flowers — or the meat aisle — the same way.
