~ I’m not sure what predispositions you bring to the table when it comes to plant-based eating, or what you think when you hear that phrase. I know that we live in an age where trendy new “diets” lurk around every corner and that you probably know numerous people who are trying “paleo” or “gluten-free” or “soy-free” […]
~ Something very odd has happened to me lately… I’m am losing my desire for super-sugary sweets. What is going ON with me?!? It’s quite baffling. All of a sudden I cannot finish a pint of Ben & Jerry’s (which is unheard of!) Even my ongoing love-affair with Seasonal Reeses just isn’t burning as hotly […]
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Hippocrates 460 B.C As you all know, I’ve recently had a baby! She’s two weeks old, in fact. And throughout the past two weeks, we’ve been very blessed to receive some wonderful food gifts from friends and family to help relieve the burden of food […]
~ 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. […]
Ok… so this is just one girl’s opinion (feel free to vehemently disagree with me)… but I believe it is nothing short of a sin, a travesty, and a crying shame to cook garden-fresh tomatoes! ~ ~ Was that a confusing statement? What I mean is that in my ever-so-humble opinion, there is only one […]
~ ~ Intrigued by the title of this post? Well, here’s the deal… I couldn’t bring myself to title this pesto as it should be titled, because doing so would require me to break TWO of my cardinal rules of recipe naming. Those rules are: #1- Do not include the word “protein” in a recipe […]
As you know, thanks to my incessant reminders, I had a birthday a few days ago! (I turned the big 2-8.) And my birthday activity of choice this year was a bit unusual. Normally, we spring for a fun and fancy date night on the town at a nice restaurant. But this year I decided […]
This morning, I felt certain that you needed this recipe in your life before another day could pass. Because who doesn’t drool at the sound of Sweet & Savory Balsamic Glazed Salmon, I ask you? ~ ~ The true beauty of this recipe is how easy it is to throw together, yet how impressive it […]
~ 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 […]
Note: If you are new to the Pretty/Hungry Blog, you can catch Parts 1-3 of the “Feeding Your Baby” series here, here, and here! Today’s post is a continuation of this series called “Feeding Your Toddler.” ~ ~ In my (nearly) two years as a mommy, I’ve learned that rearing children can be a bit of a […]
~ 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 found myself with an abundance of fresh broccoli on hand (as in: at least twelve crowns of fresh broccoli.) Now normally I never buy broccoli fresh, because it suits our budget much better to buy it frozen and I don’t have to worry about it going bad that way. But this week […]
You might recall my excitement over the Mother’s Day dinner I got to prepare for my mother-in-law last weekend. She is such an amazing woman! Brilliantly smart, patient and sweet, SO wise, and did I mention she adores my baby? I am so thankful to have her in my life! (And since she’s the only […]
Note: This post is sponsored by Fisher® Nuts. As many of you know, I have recently become fascinated with the health benefits of plant-based eating, and have enjoyed experimenting with using less meat and dairy in my cooking. The results have surprised even me! Vegan eating can be utterly delicious! I am excited that Fisher® Nuts […]
~ OH I had some fun this weekend! If you’re a regular reader, then you know about our strict grocery budget. And if you know about our strict grocery budget, then you also know that, while I think all cooking is “fun”, my opportunities to have some real fun in the kitchen and indulge my more […]
