This week has felt like the first normalish week since the hurricane. I feel like my brain is finally starting to function properly again and I am feeling inspired in the kitchen after a couple weeks of feeling slightly overwhelmed with everything going on in my community, including my book release! Which by the way, First Bites was the #1 New Release in Baby Food Cooking on Amazon last week! Say whatttt?? So to celebrate I decided to make a batch of my easy white cheddar broccoli waffles which will most definitely have your kiddos eating broccoli without hesitation!

I happen to be the griller in my household. I rarely let my hubby do anything but light the grill for me, and I get very excited about grilling any chance I can get! Summertime obviously provides lots of grilling opportunities, and then when fall rolls around people tend to forget about it. I on the other hand embrace fall grilling because football is back on TV and what better way to watch the big game than to have a tailgate gate extravanganze at home (home-gating if you will)? What is tailgating without a little grill action, am I right? I love mixing up what I'm serving for gameday and my new favorite easy recipe to make is a grilled spicy black bean burger with charred poblanos and avocado crema!
It's almost been a week since my new book, First Bites, has released! I can't begin to tell you how much it warmed my heart to hear your reactions to the recipes that you made in your own kitchens and that your kiddos (and you) are already loving them! While the past two weeks have been full of devastation for a large portion of my community, this book release was a bright spot in the midst everything else going on around me. I feel like I didn't get the chance to talk to you about the book before it got released as much as I wanted because we were preparing for Hurricane Harvey and what would end up being a catastrophic flood. I decided to make up for it this week by sharing one of the most popular recipes in the book, and one of our favorites around at our house! My mini zucchini muffins are perfect for the whole family to enjoy, especially tiny hands, and are made with only good for you ingredients!
Hi it's me. Sorry I've been MIA for the past two weeks, but we were on vacation in Boston and Maine and suddenly had to come home because of Hurricane Harvey..and well you know how that went. Life has been interesting to say the least and while our community is still in complete recovery from the storm, I have started to resume somewhat of a normal routine again. My days have been running together and I haven't been sure what day it is for the last week, let alone what season it is! I hear fall is approaching, even though the weather here refuses to let me believe it until this morning where there is, dare I say, a crisp in the air which feels fantastic! With fall, comes all things comforting (which Houston could use right now) and my easy candied pecans are just that...basically a hug in food form.
Sunday we are heading to Boston and Maine for a a little getaway (baby free y'all)! We are definitely planning to eat all of the yummy things along the way including as many lobster rolls as will fit in my belly. This week however we have been eating extra clean in preparation for our indulgences next week, but that doesn't mean that you can't enjoy a little treat just because I am eating low carb and sugar for the next four days! Life is about balance and my easy homemade peach cobbler is the perfect dessert to make before peaches and summertime disappear right before our eyes!

Being a mom sometimes means being super woman it seems. There just aren't enough hours in the day to do everything we are "supposed" to be doing. Between keeping up with a toddler whose mood changes from one second to the next, running errands, getting my work done, and trying to find a moment that I can have to myself, I'd be lying if I said dinner didn't sneak up on me from time to time! This just adds to the crazy that is motherhood which is why I make my life a little easier and keep Red Baron pizzas in the freezer for hectic days where I need an easy dinner! I like to whip up the ultimate Italian sub salad to pair along with a couple of pizzas for a quick and tasty meal the whole family will devour!
