Mom in the City

Mom in the City is a food and parenting lifestyle blog by Kimberly Coleman, a professional content creator, NYC wife, and mom of two teen sons. Kimberly has been blogging since 2005, and her site is a go-to resource for moms looking for quick, easy, and delicious recipes, as well as parenting tips, family fun ideas, and self-care advice.

Kimberly’s recipes are tested and approved by her family and friends, and she often includes tips for making them even easier. She also loves to share her favorite finds for (primarily NYC) restaurants, gift ideas, and products that make life easier for moms.

Here are some of the things you can find on Mom in the City:

  • Easy recipes for home cooks: Kimberly shares her favorite recipes for quick, easy, and delicious meals that the whole family will love. Currently, she is especially enamored with her air fryer*.
  • Parenting tips: Kimberly offers practical advice on various life stages. Since her youngest son will be a high school junior in the fall, there will be a lot of “college prep for moms” content.
  • Gift ideas: Kimberly shares her favorite ideas for gifts for family and friends. Kimberly’s husband calls her “Mrs. Claus” because she enjoys giving gifts and has become a “go-to” person for gift ideas.
  • Self-care advice: Kimberly knows that moms need to take care of themselves, too. She shares her favorite tips for getting some “me time”.

Kimberly offers encouragement and advice so join the fun!


After graduating from Columbia College with a degree in History-Sociology, I spent a decade in corporate America (including Salomon Smith Barney and Time Inc.) working in consumer research and business analysis.

After having my first son in 2004, I became a work-at-home mom (WAHM) because I couldn’t bear to leave my chunky baby with anyone else. Fortunately, I was able to merge my corporate and “mom consumer” skills to become a professional lifestyle blogger – here at my personal blog Mom in the City and for various brand sites (including ParentZone and CBS).
