I’m generally not a frequent muffin baker because I end up eating the whole batch in one day and then feel pretty disgusting. However, I recently discovered that my cute two year old Maverick loves muffins so I am free to make muffins every day if I want and I don’t have to worry about binging because with Mav around I’m lucky if I get even one. There are so many great muffin recipes out there but here are ten of the best:
I was at Dolores park in San Francisco last week for a playdate with my nephew and sister in law. I couldn’t help but eaves drop on two moms nearby when they started chatting about dinner routines. One of the women mentioned how much she loves an online cookbook index library she uses called “Eat Your Books.”
I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving weekend eating delicious food, counting your blessings and spending time with loved ones. I thought after eating so much on Thanksgiving I’d never want to eat again but I was wrong and have regained my appetite already. I hope you have too because this week’s meal plan has some amazingly delicious recipes. If you only make one be sure to make the butternut squash lasagna, it is the best dish ever.

My amazing sister in law Meg recently turned 30 and to celebrate I hosted a family birthday dinner. When I asked her what she wanted for dinner she requested the butternut squash, caramelized onion and spinach galette she had seen me post on instagram and another galette with figs (she is pregnant and has been craving figs lately). I saw this fresh fig and goat cheese galette recipe that looked pretty amazing and hoped that I could somehow find some fresh figs. Sadly, every grocery store I called acted like I was a little crazy in my search for figs since they are not currently in season. I had to get creative and use dried figs instead and this is the recipe I came up with. I know the picture isn’t great but it tasted delicious.
One of my favorite traditions of all time is tree hunting in the mountains the day after Thanksgiving. When I was growing up we would get up early, meet up with my cousins and grandparents downtown to eat donuts and caravan to the Christmas tree farm, spend a long time searching for (i.e. debating over) the perfect tree, chop it down, and then drive back to my grandparents home to hang up their ginormous tree and feast on Thanksgiving leftovers.
