Preparing food for your whole family is a lot of work, but Melissa Griffiths found a way to do it with ease. The busy mom of five became an Instagram sensation after starting her food blog Bless This Mess, and she’s now using it to help fellow moms keep things simple and delicious in the kitchen.
Griffiths has been on quite a journey since she started her food blog in 2009. She moved from Indiana to Utah, where she remodeled a charming farmhouse with her husband, where they now live with their five kids, who are currently 13, 11, 9, 7, and 5 years old.
Griffiths’ dishes were always a huge hit at church functions and dinner parties and people would often ask her for a recipe. After moving away from home, she realized it would be easier to share her recipes online, and decided to grow her blog into a legitimate business after seeing other people do the same.
As a busy mom of five, Griffiths is fully aware that spending hours in the kitchen is not really an option, and she’s trying to make her recipes as easy and quick as possible.
“As a hobby farmer and mom of five, I’m all about keeping it simple in the kitchen. I want healthy meals that feed my family well, and then I want to get back to my (messy) life,” she explains on her blog.
