Good morning friends! We are in the middle of a facelift over here and I greatly appreciate your patience while we make all of the necessary changes! Now, about that salmon: Every sunday, pre-baby and pro-free time, I would plug in my headphones, make a game plan, and get in a ‘cooking zone’. By the end ofRead more
I’m currently referring to my mother as, ‘the nice lady’. After this weekend, that’s how I imagine C sees her Indian grandmother. I let my mom put C down for a nap one day and 20 minutes later they were out by the pool. Not napping, clearly. Apparently, my mom couldn’t stand the crying and Grandma’sRead more
Every year, on the first day of Spring, my friend’s sweet husband brings her flowers. They’re not just ANY grocery store flowers, they’re Mark’s Garden Flowers… which are just the most beautiful flowers on earth. Isn’t that the sweetest thing? I melted for her. Every husband should follow suit, I’m convinced.
Dinner: A Love Story was one of the first blogs I read about 6 years ago. I was so intrigued by their methods to get their children to eat, their writing, and the beautiful birthday cakes they would make their daughter. All of their rituals seemed to create a beautiful, family, tv show in my head. IRead more
It’s a balmy 73 degrees and gloomy instead of the usual 91 degrees and sunny. I don’t want to be awake. I opened my eyes at 5:30 this morning to my husband saying, ‘ugh it’s raining.’ I closed them again with the hope that my non sleeping daughter would remain asleep until… i don’t know…Read more
One of my friends is newly pregnant. If that’s a thing, newly pregnant. Sounds funny to me. Anyway, It makes me think of all the changes she is about to endure and probably hopes she won’t. I can’t help but think I have no desire to endure the skin problems I had during pregnancy again. Although, it’s worthRead more
I’m entirely distracted by this hot weather in the middle of winter. It’s exactly 91 degrees and C’s cheeks are rosy and warm after a couple of minutes in the shade. If the pool would somehow heat up to that temperature we would be very grateful. My sister is in town and we are eatingRead more
In 15 minutes you’ll have a healthy, guilt free, chocolate chip cookie. Made from banana’s and oats. They’ll have you saying ‘ahh’ from the first bite.
In anticipation of summertime I thought I would share one of my favorite recipes for chicken salad. I tried this recipe for the first time at a wedding shower a couple years ago and I’ve been making chicken salad this way every since. They’re light, flavorful, and a much healthier alternative to normal chicken salad. ThisRead more
If you’re a chipotle or a cafe rio lover… you’ll probably love this salad… vegan option included. It’s a simple weeknight staple.
When I found out I was pregnant I was excited and terrified at the same time. I had no idea what I was in for. I knew weight gain was inevitable, nausea possible, and I was going to need a lot of new ‘stuff’. I wasn’t looking forward to blowing up like a balloon from water retention, gaining 100Read more
This is one of my favorite breakfasts, it’s quick, easy, and has only five ingredients. I make this after my daughter goes to bed and it makes enough for at least 2 breakfasts for the week. Here I used frozen blueberries and slivered almonds to top it off.
A warm addition to a perfectly healthy sunday brunch or everyday breakfast. Baked Oatmeal is a yummy way to get oats and fiber into your day.
I’m on a chocolate/sweet kick that is only great for milk production (since i know that’s what everyone wants to hear about but that’s my life now) so I am rolling with it. I latch onto every healthy dessert recipe that I see on the instagram and try it. So, I tried making these Chocolate Chip Cookies fromRead more
