The boys running around requires a fast focusing lens, the cooking blog would benefit from OS.  So the Sigma is the better bet of the two.

Also, even 2.8 with out flash is very often not enough.  Faster primes often limit you to using too little DOF for the needs of the shot.  Embrace flash and learn to use it as a tool.
