I’m so excited it’s the weekend, aren’t you? One would think that staying at home would make it feel like it’s all one big weekend all the time, but that’s SO not the case. Plus I love getting to spend extra time with Nate and having the four of us together for a few days […]

Indoor Stove-Top S’mores

June 17, 2015

When I was in college I had quite the experience in discovering food on so many levels. Despite the fact that I basically had a shortened version of culinary school, I learned things like roasted chicken Ramen is great with wedges of cheddar cheese…the noodles melt into the cheese and just adds to the saltiness. […]

Creamy Lemon Parmesan Pasta

June 16, 2015

This recipe isn’t new. In fact I’m basically recycling it. BUT WAIT! Don’t go! The reason is because it is seriously crazy good and seriously crazy easy. And I can’t not share it again when I know we all need a quick meal that rocks.   I’ve been really working on making fast, healthy and […]

12 Weeks: A Week of Firsts

June 15, 2015

Y’all, I’m still in shock…how was it that 12 weeks ago this little man burst onto the scene?! It feels simultaneously like it was just yesterday and also that it was many more months ago that our lives were flip-turned upside down (don’t make me bust out the whole song!) by his arrival. I haven’t […]

Hello friends! I’m so excited it’s Friday, but when is that not the case? This week was full, hard, and filled with a lot of joy and a lot of grace. I’m humbled in so many ways on an hourly basis at this calling of motherhood and my job as a blogger, but there’s not […]

Rosemary and Roasted Red Pepper Butter

June 11, 2015

Butter. Really, is there anything better?   When I was growing up we always had margarine around our house, and I honestly can’t remember trying real butter until I had some at a friend’s house one day in high school. I remember I was terrified because his mom had left it out in a French […]

Creamy Citrus Curd

June 9, 2015

When it comes to desserts I’m a fruit-dessert person all the way. Don’t get me wrong, I love chocolate, but there’s just something about the sweet and tart that I just can’t get enough of. I really love a beautiful fruit-based curd that I can use in tarts, parfaits, pies, or just with a spoon. […]

11 Weeks: Smiles, Giggles, Personality

June 8, 2015

It seems like overnight our little man has developed SUCH a personality! He’s such a sweet little boy, full of smiles and giggles and snuggles, but he’s certainly not shy with letting us know when/if he’s unhappy in any way. Is that a second child thing? Like you have to be very outspoken to get […]

This week y’all? Was kind of a doozy for me. A few weeks ago Wes had a 24-hour thing that was rough, then last week I had a sinus infection/allergy situation, and this week Austin has had something similar. Sick babies are the saddest thing ever, and while I soaked up the sweet snuggles I […]

Chili Grilled Chicken with Mango Avocado Salsa

June 4, 2015

This is another little meal that was actually a dinner we ate that I shared on Instagram and then got an overwhelming response to share the recipe!   (The first one was this yummy portobello pizza number).   The funny thing is that our dinners have been so crazy simple lately that I hardly even […]
