Baby Enzo: 10 Month Update

Enjoys: crawling everywhere, trying to climb on things though he’s not that great at it, pretty much all food right now even veggies!, attempting to feed himself with a fork, and the puppies. Milestones: he is officially crawling and is all over the place. We have to watch him like a hawk because he’s pretty quick. He always goes for shoes and …

Paleo Shepherd’s Pie

This recipe is really quick to throw together and so tasty. The combination of lamb with creamy mashed sweet potatoes is so delicious. If you don’t like the taste of lamb or can’t get access to it, you can substitute ground beef. You can mix in your favorite vegetables or mix up the spices however you want. This recipe is …

What I Ate Today: Baby Eats!

Now that Enzo is about 9 1/2 months old he’s been eating 3 meals a day. I’m trying to incorporate as many nutrients as I can throughout the day. Also, Enzo’s iron was low (about a point below what they like to see) so I’m trying to include iron-rich foods along with vitamin C foods at the same meal to …

What I Ate Today – Weekend Cooking

I haven’t done one of these posts in a really long time. I always start the day with the intentions of taking photos of my meals and usually forget after breakfast. I did pretty good this time minus my snacks… Breakfast – two fried eggs on top of leftover roasted sweet potatoes and zucchini with avocado and hot sauce Lunch …

Baby Enzo: 9 Month Update

Another month has flown by! Baby boy is now 9 months old! As Joe said the other day, he’s entering into his fourth trimester… Enjoys: rolling and manuevering all over the floor in the upstairs game room, the puppies, still saying “da-da” for everything (no “ma-ma” yet!), any and every kind of fruit, other babies and kids. Milestones: no official crawling yet. …

Roasted Sweet Potato & Quinoa Salad

It’s been WAY too long since I posted a recipe on here. To be honest I haven’t done much recipe creation and have been sticking to simple meals most of the time. About a month ago, Joe and I committed to eating vegetarian two nights a week in order to save money. When I buy meat I like to buy …

Baby Enzo: 8 Month Update

Can’t believe it’s time for another post! Enzo is getting so big and it’s fun watching him grow and change every day. Enjoys: bouncing, baby food pouches (just bought some reusable ones so I can make my own at home), saying “da da” (though I don’t think he knows what it means), using the sign language for “milk” all the time, …

Baby Enzo: 7 Month Update

Technically Mr. Enzo is about 7 1/2 months old but better late than never on posting! Enjoys: sleeping on his belly (just started this week!), bouncing in his jumper, chewing on everything and screaming (happy screams not bad ones). Nicknames: Bum Bum (I think this started because his cloth diapers make his bum look so huge!), Crank Man or Fuss Man …

Slow Cooker Whole Chicken

I’m not really sure this even counts as a recipe, more of an idea. I love using the slow cooker especially during the week on days that I work in the office. The only issue is planning ahead and making sure your ingredients are thawed and ready to go so you don’t have to worry about it in the morning. …

Baby Enzo: 6 Month Update

Wow…half a year! This last month has flown by. It’s so hard to imagine that in six more months Enzo will be a year old. I can’t even picture him that big. He’s changing so much every day. It’s hard to keep up! Enjoys: trying to roll from back to tummy but getting stuck on his side (he especially likes …
