We’ve long been fans of Catherine McCord’s website, Weelicious (& her cookbooks), which feature easy recipes for the whole family. Catherine’s warm personality shines through on the “how to” videos on her website and in her writing. We’re especially excited about trying out her popsicle recipes this summer!

Our favorites: Rice cooker mac & cheese // Very berry muffins


Deb Perelman from The Smitten Kitchen

Deb hails from Brooklyn, and while her cooking environment is very relatable for most New Yorkers (ie, tiny kitchen!), her website Smitten Kitchen, has made a name for itself in culinary circles across the country. Deb’s love of cooking is just as evident as her sense of humor and desire to cook “unfussy” foods for her family and fans, which we can appreciate, as busy moms with not a lack of spare time on our hands.

Our favorites: Strawberry Rhubarb Pie // Braised Beef Short Ribs


Jenny Rosenstrach from Dinner: A Love Story

We love the tagline for Jenny’s blog (and cookbook) Dinner: A Love Story — “It All Begins at the Family Table.” Isn’t that true? We could not believe more in the importance of families eating together, and we love that that feeling is central in Jenny’s family, too. Furthermore, she understands how hard it can be to for busy families to put a decent meal on the table, when at the end of the day, the last thing we might want to think about is what to cook for dinner.

Our favorites: Enchiladas // Cheesy Artichoke Dip


Ree Drummond from The Pioneer Woman

Ree’s adventures in life (and the kitchen!) began when she fell in love with a cowboy and gave up a city girl life in NYC to move out West. The rest, as they say, is history. Ree creates “home cooking” recipes that are just as perfect for the ranch as they are for your table. Long live comfort food!

Our favorites: Panfried Kale // French Bread Pizza
