Uh. No one get mad because I completely forgot to share my last Green Giant recipe with you! Oops. If you’re just joining us, I’m sharing one of the three super speedy weeknight supper recipes I developed for Green Giant over the summer. You can find the other two here and here.

This Green Giant honey roasted corn is my very favorite GG product, hands down. It’s SO GOOD. Like, I could eat just a bowl of this alone. It’s slightly sweet from the honey and is incredibly addicting. Just try it and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

This recipe may sound super summery to you, but it uses every day ingredients you can find at your local grocery store. I always keep a jar of storebought pesto in my fridge at all times for quick flatbread toppings like this. It comes in very handy when company come over…aka it looks like you spent a long time in the kitchen but you really spent ten minutes. Add wine and you’re golden.

The Babywearing Post

by jenna on November 13, 2014


I’ve been meaning to write this post forever so here goes!

When it comes to “babywearing” (aka wearing your baby in a wrap, sling or carrier) there are SO MANY OPTIONS. And while I’m no babywearing expert, I have tried tons of different carriers in the past six months. I’ve bought, sold and traded carriers. I’ve been gifted carriers and I have gifted carriers myself.  I truly love babywearing and hope to continue wearing Grayson into toddlerhood.  I wear him, on average, for several hours every day. I wear him when I do chores around the house, when I cook dinner, when we take walks and when he gets fussy. He’s teething right now so I’ve been wearing him more than ever. Wearing him in a woven wrap calms him right down every.single.time. We hardly ever use a stroller anymore! He loves it and I love the attachment it fosters between us. I wouldn’t consider my parenting style to be strict “attachment parenting” but I do love that aspect of the style. I’d rather consider my parenting style to be a blend of several different styles…but that’s a different post for a different day. Maybe. Maybe not. It’s such a touchy subject so I’m not even sure I should go there. Anyway, I digress. This post is meant to be my experience with different carriers. It’s really different for everyone and what I like might not work for you.  And, obviously, please be safe. Don’t wear a baby if you aren’t sure on the proper carry. There are tons of YouTube videos dedicated to that.

So…different types – there’s stretchy wraps, woven wraps, ring slings, mei tais and soft structured carriers (like ergo). Out of all those things, I have tried them all except a mei tai. This post is funny because it’s SO personal on what you like and why you like it. So please keep in that in mind.

Maple Cinnamon Glazed Root Vegetables

October 28, 2014

Roasted root veggies might be one of my favorite side-dishes ever. Nothing says Fall more than a roast chicken and roasted root vegetables, in my opinion. During this season, I make this dish, or some variation of it, every single week. I make big batches because I’m more than happy to eat leftovers for lunches […]
