I made this for the first time for my amazing friend Jenna (of Healthy Mama Space) and her family on a recent trip down to San Diego when they welcomed us into their home and treated us like family. Having opportunities to cook a meal for friends is my favorite way to show my love [...]

toddler approved crispy pulled pork

I get asked all the time about Evie's first foods journey and what she eats now as a toddler (woah, when did that happen?). The reality is that she eats what WE eat, and it's been that way from the start. Doing more of a baby led weaning approach (our own version, because I am [...]

If you've been following along over on Instagram (check my highlights), you know we recently got back from a trip to Portland, Oregon. This was Evie's third trip by plane, and they just keep getting more and more fun as she gets older. We're lucky to have an easy traveler (thus far) who actually seems to [...]

This is the first time in a LONG time that I've made a recipe and then posted said recipe in the same day. I am giving myself major props here, especially because I am coming off of 5 days of solo parenting that also included flying solo with the babe. Life ebbs and flows, my [...]

It's in gratitude that I honor my friend and Modern Mamas Podcast cohost, Jess, for the naming of this sauce.

Actually, it's quite the opposite: life giving, nourishing, uplifting, and energizing (the kind [...]

It's where we take a yearly trip for my best friend, Taz's, birthday. And now it's where we will take family weekends because, believe it or not, [...]
