Talk to Them Early & Often: How to Address Sexual Assault

Today’s post isn’t easy or fun, but I just feel compelled to start a conversation and do what I can to not only protect my daughter, but any parent or child who needs support and guidance on this extremely difficult topic. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and there was a stat I read recently that 93% of victims know their …

Fancy Tea Sandwiches with No-Nut Pesto

A few days ago, Spiro and I were sitting in my living room sipping coffee and we couldn’t stop talking about how delicious it was, and how happy we were with our new coffee/espresso maker. Our friends gifted us the Nespresso Vertuo Bundle (milk frother included) and it has been a gamechanger. The coffee is beyond amazing, …

Tomato Bacon Eggs Benedict with Faux Hollandaise Sauce

Making Eggs Benedict requires a lot of skill and expert timing. Each component should be ready to eat at the exact same time and the hollandaise sauce should be warm and velvety. Making hollandaise sauce is really f*cking hard. I tried, I failed, and I’ll never attempt it again – there is a reason why I only eat it when …

Zelda Takes The Museum of Science and Industry

As a parent, I totally get that a lot of child-based activities can become monotonous (maybe even a little boring if I’m being honest) and over-played. We all get into our routines and visit the same parks or the same museums, even when there’s nothing new happening. We’re really just always on the lookout for any kind of fun activity …

How My Toddler (Finally) Bid Farewell to Her Pacifier

One of the clearest things about being a parent (other than the life-changing magic that happens), is that you're - for some reason - open to incredible amounts of judgement from other parents. It's like, even though we're all doing our best and what we think is good for our kids, judgement is thrown around like confetti, even …

One Pan Cashew Chicken + Roasted Vegetables

During the week dinner should be easy to make and even easier to clean up! I’m all for one pan recipes and Cashew Chicken + Roasted Veggies checks all the boxes. It’s a super low maintenance meal that gives me more time to hang with Zelda after work. Once it is in the oven I don’t have to think about …

How to Handle a Medical Emergency Abroad

As you guys might have seen, the whole family took a trip to Punta Cana back in March. I’d been dying to go to this part of the Dominican Republic for a while, so when Spiro suggested we go to kick off spring, you know I was down. We packed up Zelda and headed south for

Zelda Style Diaries: The Edgy Stage

I'm pretty sure Zelda is going through her "edgy" stage and it's been so fun to witness. A little Nirvana meets fashion girl, and obviously with a ton of color and personality in between. Whether you have a girl or boy - there are lots of cute pieces and fun ideas for adding color to hair or sprucing …

The Ultimate Kid-Friendly Las Vegas Travel Guide

For as long as I can remember, I've loved Vegas. I mean, who doesn't? The people watching is unlike anywhere else, you can find phenomenal food at any hour, let loose, lay by the pool most months of the year, see amazing shows, and obviously be entertained the entire time. It's a city that quite literally never sleeps …

Turkey Wonton Tacos

It’s never too early to start thinking about Taco Tuesday! With a spicy kick and a lot of crunch, Turkey Wonton Tacos were an instant hit in my house. Appetizer or main course?  You decide! As of late, I’ve really been into pickling vegetables and the sweet and salty components of the pickled carrots and cucumbers balance the heat from …
