Hello, my name’s Stacie and I’m a Hungry Mama.
Being hungry is not the kind of thing that a hip, young NYC girl like me admits easily, but it’s true (not the part about being a hip young thing!). I’m hungry all the time, and I started One Hungry Mama (www.onehungrymama.com) because I suspect you’re hungry too. And because your hunger, like mine, probably can’t be satisfied by the food whims of the tiny people you hang out with—the ones who, if you let them, would eat pizza every night, pour ketchup over everything and refuse asparagus (even tossed with olive oil and shaved parmesan—the beasts!).
Kids change the way we cook, but they don’t have to change how well we eat. Hungry mamas and papas can whip up quick but delicious meals . . . shop on a budget and still manage to buy all-natural ingredients . . . cater to different ages and tastes without making separate meals . . . and champion moderation while enjoying a good splurge!
Most important, we hungry mamas and papas can cook to please ourselves and know that it’s good for our kids too. Serving our families the good food that we want to eat may sound self-serving (and it is!), but it also helps our children develop tastes and habits that will make for a healthy life.
Other than being hungry, I'm a Brooklyn mama to two very hungry boys who combines my background in developmental psychology with passion for food to help make the world a better—and more delicious!—place for families.
- What is the strangest food you have ever eaten?
- (A drink count?) Real-deal country snake wine in Vietnam (not the kind you buy at the souvenir shop), complete with floating crow feathers and gecko parts.

- When I don't want or have to cook for the family? Confession: I enjoy a HUGE bowl of sugary cereal.
