Puppy Love

October 19, 2012

This face.  I love it. Y’all, I love my little boy so much.  I love how he’s started saying, “MA MA MA MA MA MA” even though it doesn’t count because he’s not trying to say it to me (yet).  I love that he throws his body around in his exersaucer, only ever wants to […]

Pumpkin Quinoa Energy Bites

October 18, 2012

I may or may not have recently purchased the ONE THING that my little kitchen has been without for too long: a mini muffin pan.  Yes, I know I’m late to the game and yes, I know I’ve been missing out.  I just couldn’t justify the $10 purchase when I needed so many more important […]

Mezamashii – Running and Otherwise

October 17, 2012

Mezamashii: Japanese for brilliant or eye-opening.   Ever since I was a little kid I’ve always had a fascination with foreign languages.  I took 14 years of Spanish and can honestly say that some things I understand better in another language.  There’s just something more romantic about understanding the same word in a different form […]

Sweet Potato Bread

October 16, 2012

When I was a working girl in the traditional sense (i.e. before I became a mom and only had to work from 8-5) I had an amazing boss (hey Shannon!) who had literally just come back from maternity leave from having twins.  TWINS.  Can you even imagine?  That is, if you don’t have twins, can […]

Browned Butter Toffee Brownie Bites

October 15, 2012

I know it’s my job as a food blogger to make a bunch of stuff and then tell you to MAKE.IT.ASAP and wax poetic about how incredible it tastes. You guys?  If ever the time came to actually listen to me and make something, this is IT.  These bites (which can also be made in […]

Today’s Confession

October 12, 2012

Today.  Friday the 12th.  Today I woke up tired and grumpy.  Frustrated.  Cranky about the fact that it seems like (and I know this sounds ridiculous) every other blogger in the world is on some awesome blogging trip right now.   Everyone except for me. But then I stopped.  I took a minute to look […]

Brown Butter Peaches & Triple Ginger Biscuits

October 11, 2012

This should be illegal.  Really.   I mean, I totally nullified the healthful benefits of peaches in one fell swoop and I don’t even care.  Don’t get me wrong, fresh peaches are probably one of my favorite things ever.  Give me a Fredericksburg peach and then don’t try to pry it from my greedy little […]

Garlicky Quinoa & Baby Kale

October 10, 2012

Can we all just agree that any post starting off with this much garlic wins for the day? Lately we’ve been working really hard to get back into the routine of eating well around here.  For the longest time with the move we were eating quick meals at either fast food restaurants or ones that […]

7 Months Old!

October 9, 2012

As I’m sure many of you know, a lot can happen in 7 months, but it’s also such a short period of time.  Yesterday Wes turned 7 months old and I’m just in awe of how fast the time has flown and how much he’s grown up since he was born. My little dude is […]

White Jacket Required: Pumpkin Whoopee Pies

October 8, 2012

Once upon a time there was a girl who worked in a cubicle looking for a way to share her love of food with the world.  She started a blog, wrote about 10 posts, and then forgot about it.  One day she came across an article in a 2009 feature in Self Magazine that featured […]
