Italian Summer Pasta {Vegan Pasta Salad}

Italian Summer Pasta for hot summer days! This vegan pasta salad is tossed with crushed tomatoes, herbs, and olives, with a drizzle of olive oil and some vinegar to brighten things up. It couldn’t be easier to make or more delicious to eat.

My baby turned one last week. Although it was an unexpectedly weepy and nostalgic day for me, Niko seemed to give zero effs about it. I walked into his room on Wednesday morning singing happy birthday, and he shouted something that I interpreted along the lines of, “shut your face and give me that damn bottle,…

what’s good around the web

Hello friends. Well February has whizzed by, hasn’t it’? Maybe because it’s my last month of maternity leave, perhaps because my baby turns one tomorrow, maybe because it’s a short month as it is. But dang, I blinked and it’s gone. This weekend I’ll be rolling up my sleeves and packing lunches for the first…

what’s good around the web

Howdy. It’s been on my mind to revive What’s Good Around The Web, since I know many of you enjoy reading it and I certainly enjoy sifting through nutrition news to find interesting and worthy reads.

Before I had a child of my own I never understood what the big deal was, why people with children complained about never being able to get things done. Don’t babies sleep all the time? Well. Consider myself appropriately humbled. The last eight months have been an adventure, to say the least, and gratifying beyond belief….

This little man came storming into our lives almost two weeks ago, in the wee hours of March 1st, 2016. He avoided being a leap day baby by a matter of hours, but when he decided he was ready to come he charged out at break-neck speed, clearly taking after his father and attempting to…

Salted Coconut Caramels

I have been off work, on maternity leave, for two weeks now, and I must tell you I’m not all that good at having nothing to do. Ok, it’s not like I actually have *nothing* to do, I’ve been keeping busy fielding all kinds of amusing emails and text messages from well-meaning people coming out…

no-bake granola bars

These no-bake granola bars are quick, easy, and endlessly adaptable. Well hello! Some of you might have assumed, given the lengthy silence around these parts, that I’ve been busy having a baby. It’s a fair assumption, given my condition when we last spoke, but unfortunately not correct. Baby Muffin Myth is still baking away, much…
