Crab Cake Benedict with Avocado {Cravings}

I own quite a few cookbooks, but there are few that I actually reach for time and time again. The Pioneer Woman and Ina Garten cookbooks are my absolute favorites. Those ladies can do no wrong in the kitchen. Lately I'm finding myself reaching for Chrissy Teigens book, Cravings, as my new favorite cookbook as I have been using it non-stop for the past couple of months.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie

Last week for Valentine's Day, I made this festive smoothie for the whole family as a fun way to kick off the day. It was a big hit, especially with my toddler! Who doesn't love chocolate and fruit for breakfast!?!?

Our Valentine's Day Dinner

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day this week! I know we sure did :)

We didn't go out on the town, because Lord knows how fun going out to eat with a toddler can be! This year we dined in and I pulled out all the stops to make up for the fact we were eating at home and not going out.

Glazed Pumpkin Donut Holes

This past weekend I surprised my boys by waking up early and making them these fun, somewhat healthy donut holes. We have been eating healthier over the past 6+ months, but sometimes you just gotta have donuts on the weekend. These baked and glazed donut holes definitely hit the spot!

Handy Helper

My little man is going to be 2 years old in a couple of weeks! How did that happen? It feels like yesterday I was writing a blog post about different type of food purees that I was making for Nolan. Craziness. Now I'm living in a world revolving around Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, PAW Patrol, Little Blue Truck and Llama llama books. Chicken nuggets, macaroni and cheese and Goldfish crackers are my life you guys. Haha!

Little dude has become quite the helper in the kitchen and lover of sweets! He may be super picky in the majority of foods he eats, but he will not turn down a single treat. Nolan has inherited his fathers sweet tooth, that's for sure!

Starbucks date with my little buddy last week. He had a cakepop and fancy chocolate milk. I had an iced mocha and stole bites of his cakepop :)
Nolan especially loved Christmas time a whole lot more this year now that he could partake in all the Christmas baking. We decorated sugar cookies.....

Made lefse with the great-grandparents....

And enjoyed licking every spatula, spoon and whisk!
We will see if he becomes one of those kids on Food Network with their developed "culinary styles" by the age of 8. Right now his "culinary style" is instant mac n cheese, fruit/veggie pouches, crackers and fruit snacks. Doubt the Food Network judges would be too impressed with that! ;)
