Who: Deb Perelman, mother of one son in New York City
Why we love this blog: Why we love this blog: Perelman’s got legions of hungry fans (including us) for a reason. Whipping up edible masterpieces on the mere 36 inches of countertop space in her tiny Greenwich Village kitchen, Perelman consistently encourages families to think outside of the meat-and-potatoes box with recipes like carrot soup with tahini and crisped chickpeas. Of course you’ll also find comfort food here, but more often than not, Perelman adds a twist that kicks even the most mundane foods up a notch. If the Smitten Kitchen site isn’t enough, The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook contains more than 80 brand spankin’ new recipes worth trying.
