Preschool is way, way underrated y’all. I can’t even describe how nice it is to have a consistent two days a week where I know I can schedule appointments, work on the blog and actually create again. Unlike having a babysitter, I can actually be at HOME while Mazen is out. (It’s so surreal to […]

Mazen loves noodles. I love nut butter. Matt loves soba noodles. So this recipe was born to make the whole family happy! Matt has been coming home from work at about 5pm and taking Mazen to the park for a little post-nap playtime (Mazen has been taking crazy long naps these days!). This gives me […]
