Let's make beautiful food together!
You’ll have to forgive my long absence… the PH blog has been undergoing a major spruce-up! So whaddya think of the new design? Our focus in re-designing was to make this space more user-friendly, less cumbersome to my server, and (of course) more attractive to you (and me!) I’m SO pleased with the result, and excited […]
I’ve been getting a funny question rather frequently lately… What does a typical day of meals/snacks look like for me? I suppose it isn’t that funny since I’ve made no secret about the fact that I’ve transitioned to eating mainly whole, plant foods, and have also cut out pretty much all added sugar. Not exactly […]
~ Some time ago I was asked to collaborate with Golden Girl Granola for a product review here on Pretty/Hungry! I had never heard of the company before so I was very intrigued. Afterall, it’s not easy to find a great granola… most of the brands I’ve tried are far too sweet, and are, of […]
Some time ago, my mother-in-law gifted me with a little stove top espresso maker she bought in Italy. (And technically, she bought it for *us*. But I feel that the bond between said espresso maker and myself has grown so deep that really it cannot truly belong to Chris as equally as it does to […]
I’m a major smoothie girl! And so is my little one. (Which is delightful to me because she considers smoothies to be a real treat and I’m happy to serve them up since they’re soooo good for her!) I’ve shared my Tropical Green Monster Smoothie with you before, and also my Post-Partum Super Smoothie. But […]
~ Oh hello there. I have a fabulous recipe to share with you today. I invented it. And I am in love with it. But I do feel the need to provide a disclaimer and tell you that my husband does NOT love it. (And now I feel the need to disclaim that disclaimer and […]
~ Hello there! Good news- We had our new baby just over a week ago and she is PERFECT, as you can clearly see from the photo above. If you want to see more little life moments like these, I’m on Instagram! And if you’re into birth stories, I wrote about Ava’s here and here. […]
I recognize that there is a very important time and place for “quick and easy” recipes… I’m all for them! It’s just that today’s recipe is not one of them. #sorrynotsorry ~ ~ You see, I have this strange attraction to complicated food. (Actually, let’s call it “complex” food… that sounds fancier and less scary.) […]
Are you familiar with the Babymoon trend? Essentially, it’s a mini-vacation you take right before a new baby enters the family. A bit of a “last hurrah” where you soak up the pleasures of uninterrupted sleep and quiet restaurant meals before those things become ancient history. (By the way, our lives changed in awesome ways […]
Today, I am doing something I never do. I am interrupting the schedule of posts I had planned to bring you this week in order to give you this recipe. (Which for someone like me, who thrives on planning, making lists, and checking items off one by one… is a pretty big deal. Go ahead […]
~ I’ve been so excited to share this post with you! This past weekend, I was gifted with a gigantic box of gorgeous, sweet-as-ambrosia, Washington peaches. I absolutely love summer peaches… there’s just nothing like em’ in this world! (The peaches I buy at the grocery store, especially in the wintertime, are totally flavorless… I’ve […]
Ok, technically this meal was a “Brinner”… but that’s not a well-known word so I went with “Brunch.” Regardless of its formal title, this collection of breakfast foods pretty much sums up my most favorite things in life. My sister chose each of these dishes for her birthday celebration this weekend (and last year, she chose […]
~ I have a major crush on a local establishment called the Old Mill Bread Co. Ever heard of it? Well, frankly, I curse the day I first learned about it, because I now find it very difficult to be content in life without Old Mill bread being a daily part of my diet. It’s just […]
~ Hi all! I’m starting to worry that my fellow junk-food-lovers out there are going to think I’m forever lost to the Dark Side. 😉 I know I’ve been posting a heckuvah lot of health-food on here lately! And the reason for that is quite simple… these are the foods I’ve been cooking for our […]
I recently discovered that Mother’s Day is, like, one week away! (Don’t know what rock I’ve been living under… it just snuck up on me!) But don’t worry, Dads and kiddos out there, I’ve totally got you covered! I have the perfect idea to help you make the Mama in your life feel special: Breakfast in Bed! […]
