Making the Right Choice

One of the most adorable things about Fox right now is his obsession with making choices. Sometimes I even hear him in his room saying, “This one? No. This one? No. This one? Yes!” while he’s putting himself in control of which hat Mr.…

This past weekend we drove 5 hours up the coast to Monterey for Mother’s Day weekend. We’re pretty lucky to have a child who oddly loves to take car rides, but we do keep a handful of healthy snacks in the car (fruit leather, berries,…

West Coast Style Adobo Squash Tacos

To know me is to know that I love tacos. There’s nothing that compares than warm homemade corn tortilla, no matter the filling (mine are usually stuffed with al pastor and smothered in sauces). I’m actually ashamed to admit that when I moved to California I…
