Are Any of These 4 Beliefs Standing In the Way of Dinnertime Bliss?

Over the years I’ve learned that there are 4 beliefs that often stand in the way of dinnertime bliss. How many of these apply to you? 

  • I’m a very busy mom and don’t have time to cook. Making home cooked meals will mean setting time aside that I just don’t have.
  • Coming up with meal plans is too difficult. I don’t have the time or energy to plan what we are eating in advance.
  • I’m not someone who enjoys being in the kitchen. The last thing I want to do is spend hours cooking every week.
  • I have a house full of picky eaters. No matter what I make they will only eat certain foods. I feel like a short order cook some days!


I'm here to help you make dinnertime something YOU look forward to every day.

Who Am I?

I’m Melissa Griffiths—

Mom of 5, wife, hobby farmer, blogger and owner of Bless this Mess, a family-friendly food blog with the intention of making cooking for your people WAY easier. And more fun. No matter how much time you have.

My approach to food and meals? Nothing needs to be over-complicated or stuffy. My mission is for you to go from feeling overwhelmed to feeling empowered.

Life is about connecting. Coming together, even when we’re exhausted or grumpy, and absorbing the slower moments of eating a meal that tastes good around a table with those you love most.

It’s about sometimes making the nourishing dish, and other times tying some aprons onto the little ones and baking a double-batch of chocolate chip cookies together.

It’s about finding the space to create moments of caring, not when the timing is perfect, but every day.

That’s what I’m here to help you do, too.
