  • The holiday, skiing, remote learning, and life has thrown this week off. I think it’s Thursday.
  • Not so sure about the new flavors. I do enjoy the classic.
  • Pretty cool images.
  • Thanks for all of your audio book and podcast recommendations for kids. Read the comments on this post if you are looking for ideas too.
  • Kid friendly dinner.


  • New this week, my current favorite snack, a cozy dinner, and the best salad.
  • Do you shut down your kitchen every night? We do this (most nights) and it really helps.
  • Love the green! Also, this dress in the green print! So fun!
  • Citrus is so good right now. You should make one, two, and three!
  • Question, if you get our emails, are the Saturday meal planning recipes helpful? Anything else you would like to see via our email newsletter? If you aren’t subscribed, you can sign up HERE!
  • I finished season 2 of Cheer. If you watched, who were you cheering for?
  • Cute top! This one too!
  • Taste the rainbow.
  • So comfortable.
  • I can’t stop baking banana bread. I am blaming the pile of brown bananas on our counter, but I am the one who bought the bananas:) We have been eating it and I put a few loaves in the freezer.
  • Fun for Valentine’s Day. We also use ours for making egg waffles, the boys love them.
  • I’ve been using this on a lot of my sweaters.
  • All the books becoming movies this year. Quite the list!

Get the best of the best!

  1. Yes, I absolutely love your Saturday meal planning recipes! I have told so many friends about that email. You are my top go-to for meal and recipe inspiration week after week.

  2. Love your Saturday meal planning recipes! Thank you so much!
    Just finished Cheer season 2. It was heartbreaking, and I didn’t know who to root for! I cried with the winners and also the ones who didn’t win! LOL

  3. I find the Saturday meal plan email very helpful. While I don’t follow to the letter it’s very inspirational for my own. Thank you!

  4. I used to love your blog, but with all of the ads, I’m staring at a 2×5″ square (on a large laptop screen) & as I scroll down, more ads. And THICK YELLOW NAILS isn’t something I want to read about on a food blog! Bye bye. Removing your bookmark.

  5. I know I always look for the meal planner on Saturday. Definitely make at least one of the suggestions per week. I love the other emails that come through as well. Always so relatable to the season.

  6. Hi Maria,

    Yes, I really appreciate the Saturday meal planning recipes. I’ve already made 2 recipes this week!

    I used to be a subscriber when you had your service and now look forward to the Saturday email as that replacement. I hope you will continue to send these out : )

    Thanks for all that you do. I pretty much exclusively use your recipes for weeknights, holidays, you name it!

  7. We are loving your recipe for Greek meatballs. Have made them several times. Good cold too!

    Have you read thing by Elisabeth Strout? I think you’d enjoy her fiction.
