I woke up this morning, rolled over, and said to your dad ‘I think I love our baby more when she sleeps through the night’. We’ve had 5 nights in a row of good sleep and I’m feeling rested and ready to hang with you. I don’t know if its a fluke, and each night

super spinach tofu

Searched my old standby- epicurious- in hopes of finding an easy baby friendly recipe for tofu. I modified this one just a tiny bit: SPINACH TOFU Boil water. Cut tofu into small cubes. Dump tofu into water and turn off the heat. Let it sit for a few minutes. Chop 1 onion, 3 cloves garlic

morning muffins 2.0

Those muffins we served at the restaurant? Yea, those weren’t healthy. I know they looked healthy- carrots do that to a muffin- but they had basically equal parts flour and sugar! And lots of oil! I’ve found a new recipe that is (probably) much healthier- and baby likes it! I’ve made a big batch the

I swear there’s a food post in my drafts… I’d say that’s been a big change this month. I’m now making meals (with you in mind- pretty soft, easily broken or mashed into small pieces, less salt, etc) and you’re eating what we’re eating. More in that food post! This month has been hard for

Another month has flown by. I didn’t even get a chance to sneak in a food post in between! And there was some good food around here during the holidays. The holidays were a blast with you! Our routine disappeared, but we had lots of time at home with daddy and family. You enjoyed spending

8 MONTHS!

I can’t believe it! You are so old! At eight months, you’re just a complete spaz! In the best sense of the word.. You’re busy and happy and interested in everything! What’s that loud noise? You spin yourself around to watch cars drive by on our walks. You love watching other kids- especially bigger ones

This is purely for my own benefit. I need to make sure that I remember this thanksgiving menu. It includes all of our favorites and is a delicious gluten-free menu. CORN PUDDING This is THE BEST corn pudding I’ve ever had. I made it gluten free by subbing a GF flour for the AP flour.

dream dinner

Sometimes a friend asks you to cater a party. This could go many ways- but thankfully in this case, I think it worked out well for both parties. I got to play in the kitchen and my friends got a delicious dinner party. I presented 2 menus (fall with stuffed squash, beets and apple salad,
