Ah, being a new mom. The exhilarating and exhausting days and nights of parenthood! So much to do and so little time and yet… one thought keeps fighting it’s way back into our minds: the weight.

Hence, this lentil stew, it’s easy, hearty, fulfilling, and healthy.
When we have no time to cook during a busy week, picking up a rotisserie chicken on the way home seems like the ideal (and quickest) solution. In so many families, Mom and Dad (and Titi and Abuela) spend full days away from home and easy and inexpensive dinners are essential to keep the family happy (and sane!). But while store bought chicken is certainly a fast alternative, it isn’t necessarily the healthiest. So why not prep your own delicious roasted chicken at home and leave it ready for your mealtime?
Though it may sound time consuming or daunting, roasting a whole chicken requires nothing more than a few minutes of prep time and hands free time in the oven. In this easy recipe, lemon and garlic work with a wide variety of herbs to create a juicy flavorful bird.
You know the drill, it's time to pack the kids' lunch box. Do you stretch your culinary muscle or do you go for the tried and true: sandwiches, pasta, or pizza? Let's be honest, quite often, we mothers are not seeking new options for lunch time. We want something healthy, fast, and struggle-free. The good news is: we can do all that and still attempt to broaden the options for our little ones.
These Spinach Croquettes are super simple, cheap, and nutritious. With a crisp exterior and a touch of parmesan cheese inside, they are a great way to encourage kids (and adults) to eat more vegetables!
Believe it or not, summer is almost over and back to school season is upon us. Although it's hard for me to believe, my daughter is about to start kindergarten!

When we bought a new backpack and lunch box for the occasion, I felt as if I was starting kindergarten, too!
