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! So colorful, flavorful and healthy, too! I’ve made heirloom carrots before – they are great for adding incredible

Kale Salad with Beet Ribbons

These beet ribbons have been making many appearances on my Instagram feed as of late … and for good reason! They’re delish. I like to make a big batch and have them on hand all week. The tofu and beets require no cooking, so this is one very quick meal once everything is ready to

Lactation Cookies

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

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

It’s probably no surprise to any of you that I love to cook.  I’ve written a cookbook (coming out this spring!) and I cook every weekday night at home for me and my husband.  But as a new mom, sometimes I can use some help – even (maybe especially?) in the kitchen. The nice folks

I love making risotto – it’s easy and perfect for a crowd. This recipe for Spinach Risotto with Garlic and White Beans could not be more delicious.  I love adding white beans for extra protein – a great tip for both rice and pasta dishes. Lagostina asked me if I wanted to try their new Risotto Pot – a
