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!

Erin Scott of Yummy Supper

For Berkeley-based mom Erin Scott, gluten-free eating isn't a fad: She was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2008 and later found out her two children were gluten-intolerant, too. Refusing to settle for processed or tasteless food, she started experimenting in the kitchen—and her award-winning blog was born. Don’t miss Scott’s just-debuted first cookbook, full of her signature simple, seasonal, so-good-you-won’t-miss-the-gluten family recipes.
