My Kid Didn't Eat All the Berries So Here We Are: A Pie Recipe

Since becoming a mom my whole world got rocked. Obviously, the emotional part and the physical part. People joke about the financial part but seriously, it is rough. Hence, I’m selling my clothes and attempting to monetize a blog. So I don’t want to waste anything time, money, and food. I look at my fridge ingredients like a puzzle to be solved as opposed to just pulling something out to eat. While it’s imperative that we eat fresh fruits and veggies, it’s hard to eat them all in time before they go bad. This is where a good go-to use up your produce recipe comes in. I like to use this basic banana bread recipe to use up my brown bananas. We had a bunch of berries and I decided to make a pie. I’m including a basic crust and filling recipe that you can substitute with the berries of your choice with a few adaptations. This doesn’t take that long and it allows for a sweet dessert that you can share in your home or take somewhere (ie when you check your calendar and it’s Teacher Appreciation Week and you need to bring something in and you totally forgot and you don’t want to run to the store).

My Toddler Ate This: A Great Pasta Recipe Courtesy of Sara Moulton

Toddlers are notoriously hard to please but Sara Moulton has this ability to create layers of flavor. I saw this recipe for Annie’s Favorite Pasta and I thought maybe Annie was a toddler. She’s her sister but my son loved this recipe. I would make this for guests and I would make this on a Tuesday night. It’s actually something I made a week after I bought the ingredients because they keep really well. So if you have a week of curveballs it’s great. So here we go!

Branching out with Barre: The Fit Part 3

The yoga studio that was suggested to me by Lindsay from Find Where You Fit had a blacklight glow barre class. I thought, this sounds fun, and I signed up for it. To the surprise of no one but myself, I had a lot of fun. I’ve been really enjoying myself since joining the Fit. Feel free to read more of my journey through this process in parts 1 & 2. I just am back into trying more social workouts as opposed to my awesome personal training. Again, if you have money please consider getting a trainer. If I can do it, anyone can. It’s a treat to myself. But this is a nice way to try new workouts and see what you like and what you don’t. I have to do low impact workouts due to my back and you can make barre work that way. The most fun was being with other people and going through it together and being creative.
