Food blogs can be intimidating, especially for busy parents strapped for the time to throw even the most simple sandwich together. But while these local food bloggers are blessed with some extra know-how in the kitchen, they are also real-life parents, scrambling to stir the soup while checking math homework and assisting with potty breaks. Prepare to find not just inspiration, but incredibly helpful tips and tricks for busy parents and wanna-be cooks, no knife-skills necessary. Click through for a taste of them all!

Simran Singh and Stacie Dong of A Little Yumminess

Bay Area babes have a global array of cuisine on offer just outside their doorway. And thanks to moms Simran Singh and Stacie Dong, weeknight dinners at home can be equally adventurous. The duo (who also teach cooking classes at 18 Reasons and have guest blogged for us) will broaden your horizons beyond typical “kid food” with quick, accessible versions of around-the-world favorites such aslChanna Masala, Lamb Gyros, and Spanish Tapas.
