Can I Get the Recipe? by Cari Snell


Looking for recipes for delicious, family friendly home cooked meals? Look no further. Cari Snell’s Can I get the Recipe? dishes out free, doable, nutritious dinner plans that offer a variety of recipes complete with shopping lists each week. And Cari has really thought this through. Recipes for the week are published on Friday so that you’re ready to tackle the grocery stores on the weekend. Can I Get the Recipe? also delivers weekly reviews and giveaways every Wednesday and even has a store with “must have” goodies and cookbooks. Cooking and recipes are Cari’s passion (she used to cook on privately owned yachts!) but her greatest passion is her family, husband Peter and young sons Taylor and Trevor. Read more at

Fashion Forward 40 by Tracey Rossignol


Tracey Rossignol used to live by fashion. Today Tracey is a 40 something mom and fashionista trying to balance her love of fashion with the needs of real life and gravity. Fashion Forward 40 is written for all of us women – young and old – who love fashion and love to dress up. Tracey says that although it sometimes it feels like the rest of the fashion world is ready to ignore us ladies of a certain age, you don’t have to be young or skinny to enjoy fashion! Her blog features celebrity fashion, fashion flash backs and Tracey’s own experiences in fashion. But unlike fashion, Tracey’s blog doesn’t take itself too seriously and incorporates her unique sense of humour – just check out her post on how to work the PJ look and you’ll get the idea.

Strocel by Amber Strocel


Amber Strocel is an engineer turned at-home-mom and aspiring freelance writer. As Amber puts it, nothing is cooler than a suburban 30 something mom trying to rock the social networking. And Amber is certainly rocking it. Strocel features her own unique combination of information, inspiration and even craft projects and cooking. On the blog, she discusses maternity and parental leave and has published a super helpful “Quick-Guide to Canadian Maternity Leave” to better explain how the benefits work. (Better than the Canadian Government that is). Her latest series, “Crafting my Life” discusses how to dream big, find balance and re-create her life – something that many of us moms can relate to.
