Just in the last few years of my life, I’ve come to regard food in a very high manner. Growing up, I ate food that was convenient rather than healthy, cheap rather than nutritious. We ate from cans, boxes, and a freezer filled with highly-processed, convenient snacks. My parents owned 8 vending machines, and IContinue Reading..
When I started feeding Bella two months ago, I would’ve guessed that she was a less enthusiastic eater than her older sister. I mean, Sofía was always about the food. She couldn’t get enough. Bella, on the other hand, was a bit more timid and cautious the first few weeks I fed her solids. Now, she’sContinue Reading..
Every summer, it seems, my grandma brings a large box to my mom just brimming with gorgeous, ripe, and juicy peaches. This year, we’re going to head up north ourselves to get in on this deliciousness. Brigham City Peach Days are something my mom looks forward to; she grew up in Brigham and the surroundingContinue Reading..
A month ago, I started feeding my now 7-month-old homemade baby food, or purees if you prefer. As promised, I will take you through how the first month went with Bella, and then I will give you a preview of what I am planning for month 2. Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

My husband introduced me to his special Tomato & Cucumber Salad just a few years ago, and I’ve been loving it ever since. We eat a ton of tomatoes and garlic around here, so we can usually throw this together at the last minute and have a scrumptious, healthy, and cheap side dish for justContinue Reading..
This is the summer of watermelon for us. We normally only buy one or two watermelons every summer, but we’ve already bought four! Our daughter loves it, it’s a great way to get some more liquids into our bodies, and it’s super refreshing and healthy! Last week, my husband brought home two watermelons from theContinue Reading..
This Saturday, I will start feeding my 6-month-old purees. I plan on making all of them, because I’m not a huge fan of the jarred baby food from the store. I have a personal philosophy that if I wouldn’t eat it, my kids should stay far from it! When I started making baby food, IContinue Reading..
On our first date, my husband and I ate Cornflake Casserole. That first date was 8 years ago today, so, to commemorate, I give you Cornflake Casserole. Another name for this dish is “Funeral Potatoes,” because they are normally served after funerals here in Utah. Our family’s version is pretty different from most Funeral Potatoes.Continue Reading..
Who here wants a nice slice of warm homemade bread smothered with fresh butter and jam? I know I do. Who wouldn’t? It’s amazing to me that less than 100 years ago, eating fresh like this was the norm. Now it’s so common to buy bread, jam, and butter (or margarine) that we get superContinue Reading..
I was trying to think of black and white food to make for the World Cup this year, and I thought of a recipe I found on Pinterest for Cookies ‘n Cream Popcorn. Cute, right? I wanted to see if there were any other recipes like this, so I searched for “soccer popcorn” and IContinue Reading..
When I was planning the itinerary for our vacation to Seattle last August, I wanted to make time to go berry picking with our 13-month-old. In my search for a berry-picking farm, I came across numerous farms in both Oregon and Washington, but I settled on a few in Washington since we wanted to seeContinue Reading..
Living with an Argentine fútbol fanatic goes something like this: “Vamos vamos Argentina!! Vamos vamos a ganar!” and “Vamos Argentina todavia!!” You can’t forget: “GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL” (deep breath) “GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL” He is loud. And obnoxious. But I love him 🙂 (click here to watch a segment of a video on YouTube that will help you hear whatContinue Reading..
