Mexican Fried Rice Nachos

Mexican Fried Rice Nachos

Our world has been turned upside down this past week. If you follow us on Instagram or subscribe to our newsletter, you’ve already heard: our adopted son, Larson Ames, entered the world on February 19! I got to witness his birth (incredible), and we spent a blissful few days in the hospital. We owe everything to our sweet birth mama, who is an angel. He’s home now, and we are still pinching ourselves. Larson is absolutely perfect, and we are head over heels in love. His birth is the answer to thousands of prayers after 8 years of uncertainty of how our family would start. If you’re new to our story,  see these posts on cancer, miscarriage, adoption, and uncertainty. We made these nachos the day before Larson was born, and it couldn’t be a more fitting recipe to share with you today. It’s by our friend Jessica Murnane, who’s just published her first cookbook, One Part Plant, full of gorgeous plant-based recipes. I met Jessica around the time we were looking into pursuing adoption, and not only is she an incredible, passionate and talented woman, she is an adoptive mama too! (Her son Sid is quite the charmer.) She’s been a bit of an adoption […]

Crunchy Baked Granola Bars

A recent beach trip found me at a cozy coffee shop nibbling on something like these granola bars.

As I do, as soon as I got home, I got to work recreating a version of my own. Welcome to the crunchiest, tastiest baked granola bars (possibly) ever.

Not only are these bars dreamy, but they’re easy to make, requiring just 9 ingredients. They also come together in less than 1 hour and don’t require a blender or food processor.

Adriana’s Fave 10-Minute Pasta (toddler-friendly)

I’ve had so many requests for this recipe, but never got around to sharing it because it would always be devoured right away, leaving no […]

In December we ate up what was in our freezer, along with a lot of dinner salads and some takeout. I…
