Sausage Minestrone Soup | PALEO, Keto, Whole30

Soup season is one of my favorite seasons- and to be honest I make it a year-round thing around here!

I love how easy soups are to throw together, and how they fill me up without making me feel overly stuffed- you know what I mean?  

They also store SO well, so I can easily save a serving or two in the freezer and defrost when I'm in a pinch for lunch or dinner.  Sometimes I'll even double the whole batch and make several servings at once!

Homemade Elderberry Syrup | Natural Immune Boosting Cold & Flu Remedy

Having a tiny babe in the middle of cold & flu season has me pulling out ALL the stops to prevent us (and him!) from getting sick.

I'm not much of an over-the-counter medicine kind of girl unless things go really south, so I try to rely on more natural remedies as much as possible.

Prevention is the name of the game, but having something natural on hand to actually fight the cold & flu symptoms if they do happen is also so important.  Elderberry does BOTH:  prevents & treats.  And it is magic!

Newborn Sleep Schedule + Tips & Favorites | 2 Months Old

They say don't tell anyone your newborn is sleeping through the night, or you'll jinx it.  Guess we're about to find out if that's true!

So, spoiler alert:  Hudson is sleeping really long stretches at night, since about 6 weeks old.  At least 5 hours, if I wake him once to eat, otherwise he sleeps around 9 hours.  

Now this is where I'm going to throw out my disclaimer:  every baby is sooo different, and so is every parent.  But this is what has worked for us!

Slow Cooker Moroccan Chicken | PALEO, Whole30

Today I'm coming to you with another restaurant copycat recipe-  well, my easy version!

We love Urban Plates.  Usually we're all about the grass fed steak salad, but there were a few times when I was pregnant that the steak just tasted *off* to me- pregnancy tastebuds, I guess?  Meat was sometimes tricky.

On those days I opted for this "Moroccan Chicken Braise" because it was warm, comforting, and still made with great ingredients.  Super hearty too.  

Freezer Guide: Products, Tips, & Recipes

A few months back, I shared on Instagram how I was prepping meals for when baby arrived- and I got lots of questions!

So today I'm hoping to answer those by sharing my favorite products for freezing food, some tips, and tons of recipes that freeze well along with all the instructions to cook, store, & reheat.

It's so nice to have meals prepped ahead of time to grab, thaw, & eat whenever- especially when time is an issue or the fridge isn't stocked.
