Let's talk about introducing solids to your baby... a topic that comes up more than anything else in my DMs these days! This is something that honestly made me super nervous in the beginning, but now that it's been several months, I've gotta tell you, it's become so much fun! I had so many questions when we first got started and thought it would be helpful for other mamas if I shared my experience here. I'm definitely not an expert, but now that we're a couple months into solid foods, I do have some tips and tricks to share that hopefully can help put new mamas at ease when starting solids too!
Where did the summer go and how is it already Labor Day!? With this super warm weather and just a couple weeks left of summer, all I want to make are giant salads with lots of refreshing ingredients and juicy summer fruit. Here are 5 of my favorite salads that would be perfect for your Labor Day festivities this weekend!
You guys, I originally posted this recipe to the blog in early 2014. It's 6 1/2 years old, and while the recipe is just as delicious as it was back in the day, the old photos left a lot to be desired!! A refresh was much overdue and I'm very excited to finally give this post the makeover that it deserved! My original post talked all about how you can find me at wedding cocktail hours chasing down the server holding the crab cakes. Those were the days right!? It sure makes me nostalgic for the pre-quarantine life! Anywayyyy let's talk about these crab cakes. While most crab cakes are loaded with mayo and breadcrumbs or crumbled saltines to hold them together, I went traditional Weeknight Bite-style and brightened them up tons of fresh and healthy ingredients. They're heavy on the crab (as all crab cakes should be in my opinion!), lemony, herby, and they just feel like a fancy dish, when in reality they're beyond easy to make. You'll love them!
It's about time I shared my Everyday Salad with you here. I make it over and over and over and realized I don't even have it on the blog! Whenever I'm whipping up a salad for lunch or dinner, it pretty much always has these ingredients in it. It's refreshing, has a good crunch, lots of vibrant ingredients and colors, and takes just a couple minutes to throw together. I'm all about a lot of texture in my salads and this really does the trick! It honestly doesn't require any measurements and you'd be perfectly fine just tossing in a handful of each ingredient but I did my best to give them to you anyway just in case you need 'em! It's definitely the House Salad in our kitchen and I hope it becomes a staple in your salad routine, too!
I think we're on day 130ish of quarantine life by now, and I'm guessing I'm not the only one who has gotten out of my healthy eating routine over the last few months. Most days start pretty solid for me with a workout during Noah's naptime and typically a smoothie afterwards, but by the time I get Noah down for the night, and dinner rolls around, and I'm exhausted, the wine starts flowing and I'm finishing the day with some ice cream because "mama needs it!". I can't complain because it's definitely been fun and I always believe there's room to treat yourself, but I also know how great I feel when I'm on my game with my meals and when my treats are more mindfully thought out than that 3rd scoop of ice cream on a random Tuesday night before bed. Who's with me!?
