  1. I’ve found that eggs hard cooked in the Instsnt Pot peel very nicely, even if they are newer. It’s my favorite method now. 

  2. When I first heard of people hating cilantro, I was shocked because it has such a grassy, citrusy flavor that goes so well with lots of things! Once I heard that Ina Garten doesn’t like it, I realized it was a legitimate thing…

    Good luck with the toddler bed! I am scared to move my little one to it yet because I feel like he’ll climb out of it every night. He’s a little younger than Maxwell, though.

    I’m loving all the instagrams of the food in Austin! It looks delicious!

  3. I love the picture of Caleb and Maxwell in their matching pajamas – so cute. Yay on Maxwell moving to a toddler bed – it’s so funny that he moved all of his favorite things over! I loved Maria’s Instagram pics/story of her stay in Austin the food looked like it was to die for! I like the denim top from Gap…it’s really cute and I think it would look good on Maria:)….thanks for the tech cleaning link – good tips – though I would also add that you should use an antibacterial wipe on your cell phones weekly – that’s what the local news people were telling us last week – it seems that cell phones are one of the most bacteria carrying items around lately. Have a good weekend! Can’t wait to see your vacation pictures.

  4. I love seeing pics of your boys! They are sooooooo cute!! You have such a beautiful home and yummy food. I love your blog!
