Broccoli & Meyer Lemon Pizza

Posted on Friday, March 21, 2014 in Veggie Dishes Everyone Loves

Lemons on pizza? Like, rind and all?! I know, I know, I totally know. I wasn’t sure about it, either.

Even after I took my first bite, I wrinkled my nose a bit. It was … sort of bitter and weird. But then I kept going. That sour/tart, astringent taste soon became addicting – before I knew it, I couldn’t get enough.

How to Make Almond Milk Coffee Creamer

How to Make Almond Milk Coffee Creamer

Posted on Wednesday, March 19, 2014 in Beverages, Foundations

Fact: I need cream in my coffee. I cannot drink it black. For the most part, I find plain black coffee vile, watery, and bitter. But a nice splash of half-and-half transforms it into a creamy, warm, soothing, comforting elixir of the gods.

So yeah. I need my cream. But my thighs do not need it. And so that’s why we’re here. That’s why I figured out how to make almond milk coffee creamer, a healthier, non-dairy alternative to half-and-half. And I’m so excited about it, now I’m going to share with you!

You know, I feel a little guilty about this (shock – I’m a mom who feels guilty), but quite possibly my favorite part of the day is naptime.

I feel guilty because, you know, my favorite times should be while I’m basking in the glow of a toddler hug, or oohing and mmm-ing over a wedge of plastic pizza, or reading Rainbow Fish and answering important compound questions like “What’s fishy doing?! What’s shark doing?? What’s the water doing?!”

Welcome to pure unadulterated cheesiness. Pure unadulterated deliciousness. Pure unadulterated awesomeness. I’m realizing I actually have no idea what “adulterated” means. I hope it doesn’t mean gross, because now I’m committed.

Our 2-year-old has a new habit lately, and I worry it’s something she learned directly from her parents.

“Daisy! No eat the house!”

This Month’s Bits & Bites: February 2014

Posted on Saturday, March 1, 2014 in Bits & Bites

When I look back on the month, two things come to mind: Love and the stomach flu. Which, incidentally, could totally be a band name.

Love, mostly because Valentine’s Day was this month. You know, as it happens every February. But also because I spent a good part of the month being a little more introspective than usual, and that reminded me to slow down a bit and focus on those that I love – and bask in it a little more.
