One of our favorite breakfast items are pancakes. If you ask Baby B what he wants to eat 9/10 times it's pancakes. I've been tweaking these chia oatmeal pancakes for months in an attempt to make a heartier, healthier pancake than my usual (affiliate link) Birch Benders Pancake Mix, which are super yummy but leave me hungry in a few hours.
The kids love them, especially with blueberries and they freeze well so I can make a big batch and reheat them for a quick breakfast.
Every once in a while, I just throw together a bunch of stuff from the fridge and every once in a while, it comes out really yummy! This Polenta, Bean, and Veggie skillet was one of those times.
I've been having fun making the babies' plain yogurt more exciting. My favorite yogurt for them is Wallaby Organic Whole Milk Greek Yogurt but I also like Maple Hill Creamery Greek Yogurt. Baby A is not a huge fan of plain yogurt, and honestly, I can't blame her. The only way I eat plain yogurt is in a smoothie because I think it tastes like I'm eating sour cream.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know I'm a pretty big fan of chocolate chip cookies (and pretty much any baked good). I used to stick pretty closely to the original Nestle Tollhouse cookie recipe but I always wished they were just a little softer and chewier. I'm pretty good at following a recipe and can wing it while cooking dinner but not when baking. It's just too science-y and I'm too lazy to learn more about how different ingredients will affect what I'm making. Luckily, I've tried enough chocolate chip cookie recipes for all of us and found a great one!
This Foodie Friday is all about the hummus bowl! I'd never heard of a hummus bowl until a few months ago when a new restaurant opened near Ben's office that serves hummus bowls. This place has become our go-to for a healthy take out lunch when the babies and I visit the office. Basically, a hummus bowl is a delicious bowl of hummus topped with almost anything you want to add to it. It occurred to me that it would be pretty easy to recreate a hummus bowl for dinner so we tried it out this week. It was delicious and I made another, slightly different bowl for lunch the next day!
