My  little man turned 2 in March. Last year we threw a huge party, so to change the pace, we kept it simple this year. We invited immediate family over for a late morning brunch and cake. At 24 months, H knows that the week was a special week of celebration for him, balloons and […]

{recipe} baked oatmeal

One of the easiest thing for me to make for breakfast is oatmeal. It’s even easier when it’s prepared ahead of time. I try to make a few dishes on Sundays, I call it my Sunday-prep-time, for us to eat throughout the week. Now that the temps are heating up around here, it is best […]

IMG_3749a.jpg

I made a simple pumpkin oatmeal bake on a Sunday afternoon, with the intentions of having it for breakfast for the next 5 days until Friday. Lets just say that by Wednesday, it was all gone. This happened last year, when I was 4.5 months pregnant. The first trimester was over and I was happy […]

I am so glad I took the time to cook and bake some food before the baby arrived.  It has really helped me to continue to eat healthy food after we brought our new baby boy home. Sometimes food is the last thing on our minds, while we continue to learn and adjust to our […]

We’ve had beautiful weather around here. I am enjoying it while it lasts. Heard there’s a storm coming soon. Admiring the  last of the ripe oranges. They are sour though 😦 And enjoying the last of the beautiful plumerias. It might be the last bloom until next season. My mother-in-law gave us a few plumeria […]

I’ve been craving chocolate lately. I’m not craving sweets, but I’m craving chocolate.  I added a heaping tablespoon of dark chocolate powder in my oatmeal bowl and it turned into this black bowl of oats. Halloween color bowl? I added shredded coconut, granola and nuts to the bowl and had myself a healthier version of […]

We had a fun and very busy weekend. I hope you had a fun weekend too. I’m a creature of habit.  I love structures and routine so I don’t mind Mondays too much because that’s the beginning of our weekly routine. My Monday morning gym routine –> 35 minutes HIIT  treadmill workout. Done! Breakfast was […]

I am trying to consume less coffee these days and I’m trying it out first with starting out the process by drinking coffee every other morning. On days I don’t drink coffee, I brew myself a huge pot of black tea and drink it throughout the day.  I’m currently using Tazo Awake (black tea). I […]

IMG_2155.jpg

It has been awhile since I’ve made muffins. So long that I forgot the last time I made them and searched the blog and see the last time I used my muffin tin. Can I just say how great it is to use keywords and search for certain things that have happened in your life […]
