Food blogs can be intimidating, especially for busy parents strapped for the time to throw even the most simple sandwich together.

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!

Its chic, crowd-pleasing food, cocktails, and entertaining ideas all stick to an easy, no-fuss philosophy—no surprise, since Chan Coffman has a toddler at home.
