Why we love this blog: Green is easily one of the most relatable voices in the food blogging world, and she’s not afraid to give readers a peek at her private life in addition to her recipes. The Hungry Housewife is packed with why-didn’t-I-think-of-that? dishes like Green’s baked kale chips and buffalo chicken wing croissant roll ups. Side note: Why did it never occur to us to put something as delicious as buffalo chicken into something else as delicious as a croissant? IT’S SO SIMPLE! On top of recipes, you’ll also find some helpful kitchen tips, how-to videos and Green’s favorite things.
