TGIF! Lunch Round-Up for 1/21-1/25

Happy Friday, everyone! We had an extremely busy week, so I didn’t do much with Jack’s snacks. Each day, he went with a banana or veggie chips or those potato-lentil curls from Trader Joe’s. I did, however, keep up with his lunches: Sunday night, I forgot that the next day was MLK Day and that … Continue reading

I kid you guys not: Tonight, I made a healthy, delicious one-pan dinner that involved only two ingredients (OK, fine, two ingredients plus olive oil, but who doesn’t have olive oil already on hand?) and took 10 minutes.

Strawberry Lovebugs

The other night, I was casting about Pinterest for some cute Valentine’s Day treats and came across these adorable strawberry and chocolate ladybugs from Wing It Vegan. Hers are way cuter than mine, but I thought these turned out pretty well, anyway, especially for my first attempt!  I guess I could have waited for the second … Continue reading

TGIF! Snack and Lunch Round-Up for 1/7-1/11

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season, filled with fun times with family and friends. I took a nice, long break from blogging during the boys’ winter break.
