6 Delicious Food Blogs Run by Moms
Happy Mother's Day everyone! I know quarantine might make it hard for you to spend time with your moms, but this is also a good way for you to keep her safe if you're not quarantining together. While the advancement of technology has maybe made interacting with them in these tough times easier, I know that it isn't the same.
There's not much that I can do about that, because I can't offer you the chance to be with your loved ones again. I can only share what I'm doing in this time, and maybe that will help someone. What I am suggesting is that you create a menu and share it with someone. Collect the recipes, share them, and then make them together over a video call. You can even eat together, so that you don't feel so isolated from your loved ones.
Since today is a special day, I thought I would switch things up. Normally, on social media Sunday, I like to feature one favorite social media account and focus on 6 pieces of content that I love. For today, I'm going to feature 6 great food blogs, and since it's Mother's Day, they're going to be blogs run by moms.
Keep reading if you want to find some delicious recipes developed by hardworking mothers.
1. Parsley Lime & Limonchello
I came across this blog when I was looking for a pie recipe. Since then, I come and check back in when I'm looking for a hearty, homemade meal. Parsley Lime & Limonchello is run by a woman named Debbie, who has a large family. She's proud of the fact that she's a mom to 6, and a grandmother to 10, and somehow she still finds the time to run this blog while simultaneously running a farm.
2. Cookin' with Mima
This blog was born from necessity. Mima taught herself to cook after she got married and moved away from her mother, aunts, and grandmother. That desire to know how to cook increased once she got pregnant and wanted to satisfy her cravings. That's how the Cookin' with Mima blog was born. I may not be pregnant, but the recipes are still quite satisfying.
3. Sally's Baking Addiction
I have a sweet tooth big enough that the tooth fairy would consider it to be a black hole. Sally's Baking Addiction has helped me quell the need to go out and buy all of my sweets. As someone who uses baking as a creative outlet from the moment she picked up a mixing spoon, she has had plenty of time to develop some desserts that I didn't know I was capable of making. If you need any sort of dessert, I suggest you check out Sally's blog.
4. Dinner at the Zoo
Doesn't that sound fun? Sara is the mom that runs this blog, but before she became a mom, she was a foodie. Then she had kids, and she needed to figure out how to make quick, simple meals that were still healthy and delicious. That is how this blog came about. Since I found this blog, I have pitched to my boyfriend that I want to have dinner at a zoo for a date. We can pack a picnic with recipes from this blog.
5. Hip Foodie Mom
Like me, Alice bonded with her family over food. She claims to never really have an interest in cooking until she was married, but the variety that she presents here makes me doubt that. There are so many options, and she makes them so quick and easy. More than that, she is an advocate that we should be shopping local, which is something that I agree with in order to support small businesses. Her blog has brought joy to my life and to my tummy.
Grandma Sau's Favorite: Giadzy
When we first got cable, Giada De Laurentiis was my grandma's favorite Food Network personality to watch. My grandma's favorite part was when Giada would finish a recipe and give us a taste test, and before Giada even started chewing she would go "Mmm," like it was the most delicious thing in the world. She always wanted to try the recipes, but could never remember all the ingredients. So now, I'm listing it as her favorite here.
