Who: Deb Perelman, mother of one living in New York City
Why we love this blog: There’s a reason that Time Magazine listed this as one of the best blogs of 2011 — and whyit was also our top blog last year! Perelman knows her way around a kitchen, but she is also down-to-Earth enough to recognize that "Himalayan pink salt at $10 per quarter-ounce" isn’t going to fly with busy moms. An extensive collection of recipes combined with Perelman’s photographic genius are two of the main reasons why this site is one of the most popular food blogs out there. We’re currently cooking our way through Perelman’s archives now, but greatly looking forward to her upcoming cookbook launching this fall.
