Breakfast

Iwona’s Banana Bread

I’ve shared many banana┬ábread recipes on this site, including Coconut Banana Bread, Zucchini Banana Bread, and Banana Bread French Toast. When I was growing up my mom often welcomed my siblings and I home from school with a warm loaf, so my affection for this most basic of quick breads must come from her. This […]


Avocado Matcha Smoothie

We go through a lot of avocados in our house. Like, three a day. It is one of the few veggies the twins will eat (they hate all fruit!), and Evie, Vivian and I could happily have avocado toast for breakfast every day. I love that something so creamy and fatty and delicious also happens […]


Peanut Butter Banana-Zucchini Bread

Oof. I’ve been up since 2 am. Elinor woke up at that time fussing – Juliet just got her molars so that must be poor Nori’s problem. And then Ben came in to our bed. And then Ben peed in our bed. And then I was just done sleeping. Might as well get up and […]


Better Bone Building

It has been exactly 18 days since I broke my ankle. With life still happening around me, I am doing everything I can to maximize my chances for a speedy recovery. I am basically just waiting to heal. When I met with my orthopedic doctor for the first time, I made it very clear to […]


Chris’s Maple Bacon

Most Sunday mornings Chris can be found stocking up on meat for the week at Whole Foods. He likes a hearty breakfast every day – eggs scrambled with veggies and bacon – and until recently he always picked up a pound of maple bacon to get him through the week. But, much to his dismay, […]


Taking a FB Break + Orange Tumeric Smoothie

Ugh. This past week since the presidential election has been such a drag. Regardless of where you sit on the political spectrum, all the hate and vitriol and negativity from both sides must be bringing you down. Right? It has been a week since I’ve checked Facebook. All the political rants and name calling were […]


Homemade Nutella Swirl Scones

I found this recipe on today.com several weeks ago, and ever since I’ve waited for the perfect morning to bake it. Today I woke up extra early to an especially dark and quiet house – just the peace I needed! I got about 10% of the way through the recipe before Ben toddled town the […]


Homemade Banana Carrot Mini Muffins with Chocolate Chips

Ugh. For the past month we’ve all taken turns with the same nasty virus. It started right before Christmas with Vivian, moved through Ben around New Years, hit Evie when school re-started, and last week it settled on Chris and me. Mack is the only one who hasn’t been slammed with it (yet?). The pediatrician […]


Homemade Pancake & Waffle Mix

Saturday morning. If ever there was a time for a homemade breakfast, the weekend would be it! We let the big kids watch a couple cartoons, Ben runs the length of the house over and over and over again, sometimes I go to the gym. It is a lazy day deserving of fun meal. Enter: […]


Sweet Potato and Kale Breakfast Bowl

It might be the dead of winter, but I’m still determined to use as many fresh fruits and vegetables as possible in our meals. Sometimes I have to remind myself just how lucky I am to live in a time and place where weather does not have to dictate what and how I eat. There […]
