Recent Creations



Yup, you read that right. Notella. Not Nutella – BUT – dare I say it’s better than the store bought kind? The best part is, there are only 4 ingredients. Nutella is one of those things that I would buy fairly regularly, knowing full well that it’s chalk full of strange ingredients and […]

10 Thoughts for Thursday

1. Dehydrated apple chips. Amazing!! Etienne’s parents bought us a dehydrator and I sliced up a whole bag of apples and 7 hours later, a perfectly baby/toddler/mama friendly portable, delicious healthy snack was created! If you don’t have a dehydrator, you can do it in your oven: The Spruce tells you […]

Strawberry Streusel Baked Oatmeal

The Easter weekend is over, and I don’t know about you, but I am in need of some heathier eats for a little while! Don’t get me wrong, I love me some turkey, potatoes and carrot cake (have you tried my orange-carrot cake yet?) but it’s kind of like after Christmas, […]

Pepper Poppers

Hi! I wasn’t sure if I was going to get these bright little poppers out to you before Easter, but I’m really glad I did. I think they would make for the perfect appetizer for your Easter gathering, as they’re bright and colorful, and you can “pop” them into your […]

Golden Lentil Curry

It’s almost Easter, which means it’s almost the end of Lent, which means….it’s the perfect time for a LENTil curry. Ha. Ha. I am so funny!! I love meat, I really do. But I really love lentils too. They’re soooo cheap, fast-cooking and oh, so versatile. You can throw them […]

Mini Egg Skillet Cookie

So, I’m pretty sure you clicked on this post because you read the title, and went OMG YES! Mini eggs + cookie + giant skillet = amazeballs. When Etienne taste-tested this cookie, he said, and I quote, “this is probably one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten in my […]

10 Thoughts for Thursday

1.  If we’re driving together, and I say that I’m 100% certain we need to turn right, please, PLEASE turn left. 2.   It is a dream of mine to start a bee colony in my backyard. It’s possible! The City allows it. I’ve just been busy having babies the past couple […]

Chocolate Dipped Almond-Vanilla Biscotti

  Hi! It’s Tuesday. I hope you had a fabulous weekend and Monday! It feels like I haven’t had anything to say in a long time, even though in reality it’s really only been a couple of days. I guess I like the sound of my own voice? This past […]

thai chicken peanut curry

Thai Chicken Peanut Curry

I’ve talked before about Etienne and I’s little tradition of Friday night curries. Our standard curry is typically a green Thai curry (recipe to come) but this one is another fave. Etienne loves this curry, and this is coming from a guy who doesn’t really care for peanut butter. In […]

Greek Yogurt Blueberry Lime Muffins

Yup, you read that right. Blueberry lime muffins. Blueberry with lemon has been a favorite in cakes and muffins for a long time, but I bet you have never tasted a blueberry lime muffin! Or maybe you have, in which case I stand corrected. Either way, do yourself a favor and […]
