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 …

BBQ Pineapple Pork Pizza + Baby Update

I’ve been obsessed with making this pizza crust since being pregnant. Over the summer I made pesto, chicken and veggie pizza with this paleo pizza crust pretty much every week. I’m already dreaming about that combination and can’t wait for basil to be back in season! In the meantime we’ve been making other pizza combos such as fig jam, prosciutto, …

Salmon, Arugula and Pear Salad

I just recently started eating salmon again. I was eating it a lot right when I found out I was pregnant and then the nausea hit around 6 weeks and no more salmon… I’m also pretty picky on where I buy my fish. Cheap fish grosses me out! I want to get it on our weekly menu so I can …

Baby Enzo: 5 Month Update

I have not been doing very well at keeping up with monthly updates for Enzo! I cannot believe he’s already 5 months old. It’s crazy how fast time is going and I can imagine that it will continue to do so. Now that we are out of the newborn stage I feel like both Joe and I can breathe a …

Dealing with Postpartum Depression

This post is really difficult for me to write. There are some things that are so personal to me that it’s really difficult to share. Things that I feel truly ashamed of. Dealing with postpartum depression over the past three months has been one of those things. I’ve tried suppressing it, I’ve tried ignoring it, I’ve tried praying about it …
