One Month to Go!

Guys… I am so ready to have this baby. As much as I love my sleep and our time as a family of three, I am one tired mama. These days, I find myself daydreaming about being able to wear normal clothes and sleep on my stomach again. I can see the finish line! More […]

Greek Pork Kabobs with Orzo and Feta Pesto

Does anyone else believe that when you dream about a person who has passed away, it’s their way of visiting from heaven? My Yiayia has been in so many of my dreams lately – I think it’s her way of bringing me comfort and easing the heartache I sometimes feel when I think about her […]

A Letter to My First Born

To my sweet first born, You made me mom and better yet, you’re the reason I love being mom. It’s something I didn’t think about much, and something I never thought I’d be ready for, until I looked into your eyes for the first time and knew it was without a doubt one of my […]

Mediterranean Tuna Melts

Working from home means I need to continuously be creative in the kitchen with the foods I make for lunch. We have options near us, but it’s nice to eat food at home and it saves me money throughout the week. To stop myself from getting the itch to drive over to a fast casual, […]

Grilled Shrimp & Pepper Jack Grits

Oh, the things we sacrifice for good meals… calories, sticky fingers and stomachaches to name a few, and my least favorite – ¬†touching slimy uncooked poultry or fish. A couple of weeks ago when we hosted my daughter’s two-tti fruity second birthday party, my mother-in-law came over to help me prep. One of the things […]

Grilled Corn with Spiced Butter & Cotija Cheese

I love the concept of Mexican street corn, but cannot get over the fact that it has mayo on it because let’s be real, mayo is the worst. I despise it so much that I’ll proactively ask if sandwiches have mayo on them at restaurants because I know my meal will be ruined if even […]

Healthy Cauliflower Rice Burrito Bowl

I’ve had to stay away from rice this entire pregnancy because it hasn’t settled well with me, which is a bummer because I’m a huge fan of brown rice. To top it off, rice (and rice flour) is in so many foods/dishes I like, my favorite being burrito bowls. Have you ever had a burrito […]

Blueberry, Lemon & Cream Crepes

In my opinion, one of the best flavors to enjoy during summertime is anything lemon-blueberry. The bright zest from a lemon combined with sweet, sugary blueberries is a killer combo. Both add such a nice bite to muffins, cakes, cookies and sweet breakfast dishes. Sad thing is, I haven’t enjoyed many lemon-blueberry treats this summer. […]

Running While Pregnant

I’m a big advocate of making fitness a priority during pregnancy. I have several reasons, the biggest probably being how it improves the way I feel while pregnant.¬†It’s not just me who feels this way – doctors now encourage women to stay active and a lot of research shows that physical activity (in moderation of […]

When You Bite Off More Than You Can Chew

A great phrase isn’t, it? It was pretty much my mantra a couple of weeks ago. Between writing posts and cooking for the blog, freelancing, nesting (I’ve been cleaning our house like crazy), keeping up with running, carrying a 3+ pound child in my uterus and planning and executing our daughter’s birthday party, I began […]
