The Easiest Peach Turmeric Honeybush Popsicles

July 11, 2019

We picked up these popsicle molds recently and Owen and I have been having so much fun experimenting with different recipes on these warm summer days we’ve been having. I’ve always been a bit intimidated by the recipes I’ve come across on Pinterest and how they might actually turn out in real life, but I have to say, I’ve had the best luck with these molds. I’m always trying to find uses for fruit that is about to turn and popsicles are such an easy way to eliminate waste!

Strawberry Pink Peppercorn Margarita (Mocktail too!)

June 13, 2019

It’s officially summer here in NYC, well when it’s not raining like it is this morning, and I’m not sure about you guys, but in each of my pregnancies I have craved fresh juices and smoothies. Maybe it’s the September due dates or the summer pregnancies, but I can’t get enough. With more and more days spent at patios with friends and cocktails I’ve been itching to try some new refreshing mocktail recipes at home and this one did not disappoint. Margaritas, in my opinion are hard to nail when you make them without alcohol, but these were honestly super tasty with or without the tequila (Amy can vouch)! Follow the simple instructions below and make sure to either make your strawberry syrup ahead of time or give yourself at least an extra hour before you want to start mixing up drinks. Enjoy!

A Summer Salad That Inspires Kindness

June 6, 2019

This post was sponsored by Inspire Kindness.

Keeping kindness top of mind sounds like something simple to do in our relationships, but I’m the first to admit that it’s the people closest to us that often times get the short end of the stick. I’m always looking for new ways to approach life with a little more kindness and I’ve found that one of the easiest, most appreciated ways to show my love, gratitude and care for the people around me is by simply making a home cooked meal for others.

Dairy-Free Morning Glory Muffins for the Whole Family

April 8, 2019

We continue to introduce new foods to Owen, always try to give him a little of what we’re eating, but despite our best efforts he’s been on a serious kick of fruit, yogurt and carbs for a long time. I’ve chatted with chefs and dietary experts, all of whom have been super reassuring that Owen’s eating habits will in fact change (he can’t eat this many peanut butter sandwiches for all of eternity) and that where we’re at isn’t as bad as it can get when it comes to toddlers and their pickiness. Parents of picky eaters I see you, I hear you, we will survive!

Five Morning Sickness Hacks That Worked for Me

March 28, 2019

Now that I’m settling into the second trimester I am happy to report that my morning sickness has almost completely subsided. That being said my first trimester was rough. I experienced all day nausea, and toward the end of the first trimester and even into my second trimester I experienced some vomiting. It has been essential (even still) that I eat as soon as I wake up. In the first couple months it was also crucial that I ate lots of small snacks throughout the day rather than large meals.

Not only did this recipe turn out to look beautiful, it tastes delicious!

An Affordable, 30 Minute Trader Joe’s Dinner Hack

March 11, 2019

Zack and I always talk about the fact that I’m the weekday, healthy cook and that he’s the weekend, glutenous cook. Essentially, I’m good at whipping something up with what we have, keeping it easy and quick and usually fairly healthy. Zack will spend hours in our kitchen over the weekend perfecting a single recipe that’s usually buttery, delicious and a little on the heavier side. We both appreciate each other and have found that it’s the perfect balance in our household.

This affordable, 30 minute Trader Joe’s dinner hack is one of my go to meals. All of the ingredients (with the exception of olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper) we’re around $15 and purchased from our local Trader Joe’s.

My Favorite, Healthy, Easy Pregnancy Snacks

March 6, 2019

I experienced morning sickness both when I was pregnant with Owen and this time around. The difference between the two is that with Owen I was nauseous first thing in the morning, would eat breakfast and then would feel wildly better – no vomit, nothing too challenging honestly. This time around that nausea, at least in the first trimester, lasted all day long. I would have the same need to eat right away, but within an hour and a half to two hours it would hit again and it would come like that all day and all night long. Oddly enough toward the end of my first trimester if I didn’t immediately put food in my mouth upon waking I would even vomit. Fun, fun stuff you guys. So my cure? Eat small snacks all day and all night long.

When I found out my best friend was expecting her first baby this summer I was overjoyed. Okay that might be an understatement. I don’t know if there’s one word that properly can wrap up all of my emotions, which is a problem I frequently have, but especially in this case. I mean my best friends are having a baby!
