blueberry yogurt smoothie

As a Registered Dietitian, clients always ask me how they can incorporate smoothies or other on-the-go meals into their daily routine. While I very rarely suggest that a smoothie is the only option for breakfast daily, it can be a good option to rely on when time is tight and we’re rushing out the door

Very Soft Bath Towels

We are big fans of very soft bath towels in our home.  I love the look of white bath towels and keep them displayed in all of our bathrooms. The Micro Cotton team reached out to me asking if I’d like to try their new line of Hotel Collection Premier Bath Towels, available exclusively at

Pea and Vegetable Soup with Dukkah

Growing up, my mom made soup a lot.  It’s an easy meal for hungry kids and it can be made ahead of time – key for any busy parent.  My parents spent a number of years living in England, and I’m certain their love for peas stemmed for their time there.  This is a delicious

Pancakes with Blueberry Chia Syrup

My husband and I have always been big breakfast people.  We also love hosting friends and family for Sunday brunch. And thanks to our early morning baby, we are have plenty of time for breakfast before I start preparing brunch. In honor of National Pancake Day (who doesn’t love that?!) I made fluffy ricotta pancakes

Roasted Carrot Salad with Lemon Yogurt

I found the most gorgeous purple and yellow heirloom carrots at my local farmer’s market.  Perfect timing, too, because I was looking for a side dish for a recent lunch.  This roasted carrot salad couldn’t be easier!

As a new mom, I am all about mommy things. Not in an annoying “all I can talk about is mommy-ing” kind of way (right?! please say I’m right…), but I do enjoy dabbling in a good childrearing discussion every now and then. But when you’re around new moms the topic of breastfeeding comes up a

Blueberry Lemon Biscuits

I love baking for my family on the weekends – especially on Sunday.  I can usually count on a decent morning nap from our little lady, and I always take advantage of the quiet time.  This morning, my in laws are coming over, and I wanted to offer them something sweet when they arrive.  Blueberry

Tomato Pesto Soup

With a new baby at home, it’s important that I can make easy meals since I don’t have the luxury of time that I once did.  I am a soup lover…and it’s really simple to make a good soup at home.  A few things that help make a good soup great: Time – rushing a

Vanilla Hazelnut Pancakes

My husband doesn’t ask for much.  Really, he doesn’t. But a few Sundays ago he put in a request for pancakes.  We don’t have pancakes often, but who am I to say no?  This really was a treat, so in honor of the special occasion, I served mimosas, too.  Side note – any new (soon-to-be
