Surprise Snow

We woke up to some surprise snow on Saturday morning! Perfect morning for an early hot yoga class followed by pancakes.  I topped my pancake with extra blueberries, plain Greek yogurt for protein, and some pecans for fat so that they didn't leave me hungry again a minute later!  I took Riese off to a fun playdate mid morning Continue Reading …

Hello again, avocado toast, my old friend. I've missed you.  If you don't usually have arugula with your avocado toast, try it! Adds a little more volume and a nice extra peppery flavor.  It has been nice getting back to cooking for ourselves after a lot of travel! The meal winner of the week was this delicious pork, Continue Reading …

Right after Christmas, Matt, Riese, and I flew out to Aspen to spend a week hitting the slopes with my family! If you follow me on Instagram, you know that trying to get to Aspen was a full 2 day odyssey/hot mess that involved multiple cancelled flights, lots of time to kill in airports, zero naps for Riese, a random unplanned overnight in Continue Reading …
