Siri Daly is not only the creator of the Siriously Delicious food blog, author of Seriously Delicious: 100 Nutritious (and Not So Nutritious) Simple Recipes for the Real Home Cook, and the spouse of Today and The Voice co-host Carson Daly, but she is also the mom to three active kids. This woman knows what it means to be busy!
In this fun, breezy discussion, we chat with Siri about how the self-taught “passionate home cook” manages so many meals and schedules in her day while remaining (relatively) sane.
Siri spent years working in television production before embracing life as a full-time mom, which has its own joys — and setbacks. Some days she is shepherding her kids to all of their appointments and others she is waking up super early to co-host a cooking segment on Today with her husband. (And sometimes they cut that cooking segment time in half with zero notice — hello, endorphin rush!)
In this ep, we talk about how she creates recipes, fits in workouts on busy mornings, includes her kids in cooking process and more. Trust us: you will feel like you met your new cooking and mom BFF. We sure did!
