Baby Shower Mocktails

I don’t love the way the word “mocktails” rolls off the tongue, but I have to admit it gets the point across, and it’s not just that the beverage is non-alcoholic. There has to be something cocktail-esque about it. A mocktail requires the balance and maturity of a proper cocktail, and that means more sophisticated […]

Gluten-Free Smash Cake Recipe for baby's first birthday party. Dairy-free, refined sugar-free, and topped with fruit and edible flowers.

Gluten-Free Smash Cake

Can I pretty please get a full-time job developing smash cake recipes? Testing and photographing this gluten-free smash cake was a blast. First of all, there’s cake.

Slow Cooker Pork and Cabbage Lettuce Wraps

I just finished my first Whole30 (yes, I realize I’m a couple years late to this bandwagon) and learned a lot from the experience. I also got to develop some healthy recipes, like these slow cooker pork lettuce wraps, which were one of my favorite things to eat during that month. I feel a little […]

DIY Mini Pizzas for Kids

Here’s what I love about these DIY mini pizzas: they’re not only a fun activity that gets my kids excited about helping in the kitchen, but they’re also pretty much the easiest dinner ever to make.
