LifeSTYLE: Favorite Cookbooks

Since I’m on summer break I have had more time plan out yummy meals for my family. Pinterest is usually my go to for recipes but lately, I have been using my extra time to prepare recipes from my favorite cookbooks.

Chrissy Teigen: Cravings
I’m a big fan of Chrissy she’s super goofy and loves to eat. So pretty much in my head, she is my foodie twin. I was eyeing this cookbook for a while, so when my husband got the book for me last Mother’s Day I was more than excited. One of my go-to recipes is John’s Chicken, try it you will thank me later.

Ayesha Curry: The Seasoned Life
I stumbled across Ayesha’s Youtube channel a few years back and fell in love with her cooking. Now I’m an avid watcher of her Food Network show and her cooking clips on Instagram. One of my favorite things about her cookbook is the kid friendly recipes. My little one loves the chicken tenders.

Tia Mowry: Whole New You
This is the newest book in my collection but I have been following Tia’s cook for the past 3 years on her cooking show. My goal since the beginning of summer has been to make healthier meals for me and my family. This book is a great way to jumpstart your healthy eating lifestyle.

Please tell me some of your favorite cookbooks in the comment section and don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest for more amazing recipes.

MommyMode: After School Snacks

breakfast-and-snack-ideas-2-683x1024

I hit a parenting milestone: my once squishy, chubby face baby girl is now a 3 year old toddler. Even though she’s still a little body her eating habits have grown and grown each and every year. Between being more active at school (she’s in the big toddler’s room now, Yay!) and random growth spurts her appetite has increased to the size of a grown man. Lately I’ve noticed after school she has started asking for a snack to hold her over until dinner. In the past her post-daycare snack was gummy fruit snacks or crackers. However, incorporating healthier whole foods into my family’s diet has been a recent goal of mine so the junky food had to go. I always want to be the best role model for my daughter and one way I can do that is by making sure she starts learning healthy eating habits early.
