At first glance, you might think that this is just another rendition of the mommy-gone-foodie kind of blog. Don’t let the name and adorable photo of a crabby 2-year-old fool you.
One Hungry Mama, written by real-life mama and Manhattanite Stacie, is more than just that. Readers are given a site that is chock full of recipes helpfully categorized by age, ingredient and type, making her blog one that is incredibly easy to navigate and that caters to more than just the fellow “hungry mamas” out there.
In addition to the impressive recipes created to “help you satisfy your own hunger and inspire healthy hungers in your children,” Stacie’s background in child development is gracefully incorporated into each of her posts. She also frequently links to outside child-rearing resources, great for any parents seeking to learn a bit more.
We all know what a joy (and pain) cooking with kids in the kitchen can be. Well, Stacie takes this concept to a new level by offering tips to keep the “tiny people” in your lives occupied while you focus on getting a delicious meal on the table. While mom is busy making a healthy Turkey and White Bean Chili, the “tiny ones” are distracted by the Make-Your-Own-Cupcake Book. Guess what, now you have ideas for dessert too!
Both little ones and kids at heart will love the Peanut Butter & “Jelly” Muffins, No Knead Chocolate Chunk Breadsticks and “Breakfast for Dinner” Zucchini Corn Waffles.
Even if you don’t have kids, you will still love recipes like Pasta with Beets & Poppy Seeds, Squash Rings (onion rings without the guilt) and delectable Peach and Cherry Crumble Pie.
One specifically important post, perfect for this time of year, is, “The Power of Family Dinner.” We love its relevance when ringing in the holiday season.
So please check out One Hungry Mama, and let us know your favorites recipes below!
