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 »

56. Steamy Kitchen
Who: Jaden Hair, a mother of two boys living in Bradenton, Florida
Why we love this blog: Hair’s book, The Steamy Kitchen’s Healthy Asian Favorites, is an awesome collection of good-for-you recipes for anyone craving some Eastern flavor — and her blog is no different. Jaden doesn’t just make preparing healthy, tasty dinners look easy… she actually makes them easy. Jaden’s recipes are usually a breeze to concoct, and many (like whiskey miso pork chops and scallops with apricot sauce) have gotten heavy rotation in our home kitchens. The icing on the cake? Several of Steamy Kitchen’s recipes use the same basic set of ingredients, which makes it simple to keep the pantry stocked and reduces waste.
