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.

Foodie Friday: Polenta, Bean, and Veggie Skillet

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.

Foodie Friday: Fruit and Veggie Yogurts

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.

Foodie Friday: Chocolate Chip Cookies

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! 

Foodie Friday: Hummus Bowls

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!
