About Cool Mom Eats

Parenting can be noisy, messy, crazy, adventurous, imperfect and fun; we guess we see food a lot like that too.

You too? Then welcome to Cool Mom Eats! We think you’ll like it here.

We’re here to bring you a ton of great recipes, smart cooking tips, easy dinner ideas and weekly meal plans, school lunch help, party inspiration, fun shopping finds, and whatever else will make life a little simpler, a little more organized, and little more enjoyable.

That includes ordering take-out. Because yeah, we do that too.

A little more about us

While we do like eating well, supporting artisanal purveyors and small farms, and figuring out how to get our kids to eat a bit healthier (well, some of our kids more than others, ahem), we are definitely not the parents who home-mill our own multigrain flour. Or make organic everything from scratch every meal.

(Lord, no.)

We don’t look at a 72-step recipe requiring Himalayan salt only found in three US stores and say, “look how easy!” We don’t wake up at 4:30 AM to whip up Instagram-ready crepes and breakfast parfaits each morning. And we certainly don’t expect that every table you set will be picture perfect either — though we do try some nights more than others.

Whether you’re a mom or a dad, a grandparent, a cool aunt, or you just want some awesome inspiration for your backyard BBQ, a date night dinner at home, or an adults-only cocktail party, we hope you’ll find what you’re looking for right here.

Did we say we’re so glad you’re here? Because we’re so so glad you’re here. That’s two so‘s.
