Long Weekend Highlights

Hi guys! It feels like Monday but it’s already Tuesday – sweet! I hope most of you got to enjoy a nice long weekend, too. Here are some of the highlights from ours! 1) A hike (well, trail stroll) on Sunday afternoon on the beautiful C&O canal trail! I used to run out on the C&O canal ALL the time – I’ve logged so many miles there! It’s Continue Reading …

Recent Eats + A Running Update + Nanny Talk

Morning guys! How’s that for a long blog post title?! I guess I have a lot to say today! :) First up, I’m back on the grain salad bowl train for lunch – I almost added some soft boiled eggs to this a la my Kale and Quinoa Salad with Soft Boiled Eggs, but I had already had eggs for breakfast and that seemed like a lot of eggs, so, chickpeas for Continue Reading …

Valentine’s Day Recap

Hi guys! I hope you had a nice Valentine’s or Gal/Pal-entine’s Day! Ours looked a little different this year vs. previous years… :) (Please ignore our hot mess of a couch in the background, lol… new parent life/the tidying struggle is real.) In the past, when we didn’t go out for Valentine’s Day, Matt has usually made us some sort of epic feast Continue Reading …

Kale and Quinoa Salad with Soft Boiled Eggs

Hey guys! I'm excited to share a new easy (and portable) lunch recipe with you today: Kale and Quinoa Salad with Soft Boiled Eggs. As you probably know, two of my favorite things are filling grain & veggie salads (see also: my Mix & Match Grain Salad recipes) and eggs with runny yolks. This recipe has both - and it's really easy to make Continue Reading …

Rainy Weekend

Hi guys! We had a really rainy weekend over here, and unfortunately Matt and Riese both came down with bad colds, so we didn’t do a whole lot! I did get out for a nice outing on Saturday morning, though – my brother’s girlfriend was in town and she loves yoga and brunch as much as I do, so we had a fun girl date. We went to a 9 a.m. yoga class so I Continue Reading …

Food Highlights

Hey guys! I’m so glad you liked the looks of my Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe! I’ve already heard from a few of you who made it and enjoyed it, which is awesome. Sticking with the Mexican-ish food theme, this week’s breakfast fave so far has been tacos. Mmmm… We had some leftover tortillas in the fridge from our Superbowl fajita feast Continue Reading …

Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

This Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe is flavorful and savory, and comes together in under 30 minutes flat for a great weeknight meal! As you guys know, I finally jumped on the bandwagon and got an Instant Pot (the 6 quart version)! Pressure cookers always seemed like a good idea for fast meals but they kind of terrify me to be Continue Reading …

Weekend Recap

Hi guys! Does anyone else feel like this weekend went by WAY too quickly?! Not sure how it’s Monday again already but here we are! We had a low key weekend. On Friday, I ate some leftovers and went to bed early with Riese while Matt stayed up and ordered food with a friend who was over. Saturday morning, my friend Jackie came over with brunch! Yay Continue Reading …
