Kale-walnut Pesto

Kale-Walnut Pesto 1
A couple of weeks back I had made a Blue Apron meal that included an AMAZING pesto. But the most incredible part about it was how much my 16-month-old son enjoyed it. He kept pointing and asking for the pesto! A way to get greens in my kiddo that he actually enjoys? Heck yeah! That’s a winner in my book....

What Burrito Ate Wednesday – March 29, 2016

Breakfast Smile
It’s been a while since I’ve shared what my 16-month-old eats, so I figured it was time for another What Burrito Ate Wednesday! Baby boy chugs down 5 ounces of whole milk when he wakes up and then we put breakfast together about an hour later. All of a sudden, he likes muffins (he used to spit them out!) so I’ve...

What I Ate Wednesday – March 8, 2016

Lunch - salad
My little Burrito has been under the weather for the past few days and today, he FINALLY felt much better. This means his appetite was back and I wanted to make sure he had a protein-packed breakfast. Scrambled eggs are easy and perfect for the whole family. First, I chopped up some zucchini and sauteed it with garlic. Once they...

Slow Cooker Banana-Pecan Bread

4 Slow Coooke Banana-Pecan Bread 10
I’m not a big baker – mostly because I tend to eat way too much when something comes hot out of the oven. But every once in a while, I’m inspired to give something a shot. With several overripe bananas that needed to be eaten, I immediately thought of banana bread. If only I could enjoy this fresh and warm first...

Lunch - Taco Salad
I’ve been battling a little cold for the past few days so today was all about some comfort food. It started with a warm bowl of oatmeal. I like to make oats in the slow cooker over night so the whole family can wake up to a cozy breakfast – simply toss 1 cup steel cut oats in along with...

What I Ate Wednesday – February 23, 2016

Lunch - Kale Salad and Buffalo Salad
With a work luncheon and a special dinner date, I knew today would mean eating out for two meals, so I made sure we enjoyed a homemade breakfast in the morning. Basically, whenever I have a super ripe banana, I make these cottage cheese pancakes and switch up the fixin’s based on what I have in the fridge. You can’t see...

What I Ate Wednesday – February 16 2016

Breakfast - Smoothie
After being on vacation for a whole week (where we stayed at a boutique hotel on a cocoa estate – yes, you read that right!) and eating dessert EVERY SINGLE day, I’ve been trying to cut back on the “extras” and pay extra attention to my choices. So, today started with a Green Blender smoothie and…it wasn’t their best recipe...

7 Things to Bring Back from Vacation

Petit Piton
Every February, my hubby and I get tired of winter and just want to go somewhere and sit in the sun. And almost every year, we fail to plan for that vacation and end up miserable in February while everyone else flies south to tropical paradise. Well, not this year! Next week, we’ll have been together for 10 years (whatttt!?!)...

Snack 2 - Nourish
Ok. I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted for #WhatIAteWednesday and I promise I have some good excuses 😉 The first of which is that the whole family caught a stomach bug in the middle of January and you probably didn’t need to see pictures of saltines and ginger ale. The second excuse is that I was at...

Gujarati-Style Kidney Beans in Spiced Tomato Gravy

Kidney Beans Recipe 2
A few days ago, I posted about my mission to conquer some simple Indian recipes that I grew up eating. I’ll admit that I had first asked my mom for this recipe in March of 2015…so it only took 9 months for me to work up the courage to make it – ha! But once I pulled out the spices...
