Welcome baby!

Surprise! Some of you have noticed it has been really quite around here, and for good reason.  In late January, our beautiful daughter was born, and she became part of our family through the miracle of adoption just three days later. 

It has been a whirlwind as she was born in a different part of the country than where we live.  We were gone for nearly 3 weeks!  But, we are home now, and settling in.

I am not sure how frequently I’ll be posting new recipes, but I do have some that I can’t wait to share with you. 

We also filled our freezer with a freezer cooking day, and I’m learning quite a bit about making healthy, easy meals with one hand ;-)  I hope to share what I’ve learned with you as well. 

Thanks for your patience as we get settled in.  We are so in love.
