Butternut Squash Spinach and Goat Cheese Pie {Gluten Free}

Hello! As I sit here at my computer with a delicious recipe to share I am struggling with what to write a post about. My recipes and what I blab about here are not typically related. Usually I sit down and my fingers fly across the keyboard and boom…I have poured my heart out about my mushy motherhood thoughts, a story, my latest obsession, or how life in general is going. Right at this moment I am drawing a blank. I think I have some insight as to why that is…

5-Ingredient Stuffed Banana Peppers {GF} + Thoughts on Motherhood so Far

Happy Monday! I hope you had a fabulous weekend. Ours was fairly quiet and uneventful which was a welcomed change from the business of the summer. Brandon spent a bunch of time getting ready for a big North Shore camping trip for his brother’s bachelor party. I visited with my mom and got caught up on some cleaning and other stuff around the house. Brandon and I both spent a ton of time snuggling with Rowan…she is already 7 weeks old! Where has the time gone??? I seriously can’t even believe it!

Spicy Zoodles

Hello everyone! I hope you have had a lovely weekend! On Saturday we had a bridal shower for my sister-in-law to be. Rowan got to meet lots of family and was cooperative during the party…always helpful! Of course by the end of the party and for hours after we got home she lost her marbles. All I can say is…overstimulated baby! My favorite little gal is starting to sleep for longer stretches at night, but she wakes up at 3 a.m. and has deemed that to be party time. Needless to say, mom and dad are pretty tired. I declared Sunday nap day and have been trying to catch up on some sleep.

Greek-Inspired Bowl + Hak’s Dressing {Gluten Free}

Happy Saturday!! How has your week been going? This was my second week off of work for summer. Besides anxiously anticipating Baby Schlangen, I have been keeping busy cleaning, cooking, walking and spending time outside with Oliver, and catching up with friends before life gets crazy. It is supposed to be super hot outside again this weekend. Not fun when you are way pregnant. The heat has a way of helping you to develop gorgeous cankles and swelling…I will miss this so much after I have the baby…HA!

6-Ingredient Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas {Gluten Free + Double Batch for the Freezer}


Happy Monday!! It is truly a happy one for me…not to rub it in to you regular job people, but for this teacher I am off for the summer! That means for now I am just cooking, cleaning, and nesting away until this little baby girl decides to arrive. I am 38 weeks today so I know I could have some time left, but I am definitely feeling ready to have this baby. This week is also my 29th birthday. No huge plans…probably a casual dinner with Brandon to celebrate and of course, dinner with my bestie Katie too! I have to say SORRY that you haven’t seen a post from me for a while. The end of the school year was hectic as can be. Hopefully with summer you will see more from me…although there will be new a baby here so I will do my best 🙂
