An Oatmeal Twist

Oatmeal is thought to encourage milk production in nursing moms, so it’s something I’ve been eating for the last week.

After I scoured Pinterest, conducted during a 2:00 a.m. nursing session, I pinned a baked oatmeal recipe to […]


Copycat Cranberry Bliss Bars

I am not a coffee drinker so I don’t frequent coffee shops very often, but one of my favorite winter treat indulgences is a cup of Caramel Apple Cider and a Starbucks Cranberry Bliss Bar. Both items are seasonal only to a few weeks in the winter, and every year I try to squeeze at […]

Postpartum Freezer Meals & The Joys of Cooking with a Toddler

I did a lot to prepare for baby #1, but I failed miserably in anticipating just how difficult it would be to get dinner on the table. It was a major struggle to cook anything – one of my lowest points postpartum was a meal of tacos that never actually made it onto our plates. […]
