As a parent to three busy kids, I refuse to give up my urge to bake and cook. Time can be tight, but I make it a point to get in the kitchen despite our chaotic schedules. Cooking, baking, and eating together remains a constant in so many families because it brings us together. There's nothing more rewarding than seeing how proud your children are when they partake in meal-prep time.

Shannon makes "whole food for your whole family" and she does it in a way that inspires a busy mom — it's simple and enticing without giving up our favorites like chocolate. My go-to recipes for a busy weeknight are these lettuce wraps and grilled lemon chicken and veggie soup.

Stacey is a mom and health coach and shares recipes like hearty sandwiches and fun sugar-free waffles decorated with fruit. My favorite part: She makes leftover night fun and your family won't even know they are eating the same dish two nights in a row. My favorite is her leftover taco mince.
This Instagrammer makes my kind of comfort food. From nachos to Buddha bowls, this guy knows how to satisfy every last craving. Be warned, though: He is going to make you want to go out and buy a waffle iron if you don't already have one. His epic creations include waffled frittatas and a mean-looking waffled tater tot grilled cheese.

And since life is too short to live without muffins, you must try her Paleo pumpkin muffins, too; they make for a quick grab-and-go-breakfast for the whole family.
