SoYoung Lunch and Book Bag Giveaway

SoYoung Giveaway from Weelicious

Years ago, when I started focusing on not only what to pack everyday in Kenya and Chloe’s school lunches, but also what to carry it in, I discovered a company that I fell madly in love with. You know the kind of love a girl experiences when she finds the perfect pair of shoes that she’s dreamed about, but never thought existed? It was that kind of love. In the world of plastic and other not so well made kids’ products that doesn’t happen to me very often. Not only are the SoYoung lunch boxes, cooler bags, backpacks and diaper bags some of the most gorgeous accessories to look at (it’s rare that you find such eye catching style with kids totes), what with their modern designs appealing to kids and parents alike, and eco-friendly natural coated linen and cotton fabrics, but they’re also incredibly durable. Aside from carrying his food, my son, Kenya, has used one to tote toys and cars around for years and it still looks good as new. My daughter, Chloe, totes her...

Fattoush Salad

Fattoush Salad from weelicious.com

When we were on vacation at farm camp in New York this summer, my hankering for Greek food hit an all time high. My poor children have been dragged through all of my pregnancy food needs for the past few months and it’s been exciting and interesting to see what they’ve enjoyed most.

Fattoush Salad from weelicious.com

International food has been at an all time high on my list of food cravings and Greek right at the very top. I love anything grilled, crunchy or briny, so Greek cuisine makes a ton of sense. When we go out Chloe and I always order a double portion of grilled octopus, Kenya a meze platter with hummus, baba ghanoosh and tabbouleh and we all love a large side of Fattoush Salad. If you’ve never had Fattoush Salad now is the time to give it a try as it’s really simple with the most basic of ingredients of cucumbers, tomatoes and pita chips. I’ve seen people use sumac (a delicious spice) into the dressing, but I really enjoy it with just a squeeze of lemon juice and olive oil keeping it as simple as...

Superfood Salad Video

Now that I’m coming close to the end of my pregnancy I can look back at all of the foods I can’t seem to live without and have had endless cravings for on a daily basis. For the most part just keeping up with two kids and life it’s been about planning ahead as much as possible to get as many nutrients in my body as possible. If baby #3 has wanted anything, though, it’s a lot of salmon! I assume it’s all of the omega 3 fatty acids my body has been requiring which is essential as they’re a building block for babies brains.

To mix it up every week I’ve made Maple Soy Salmon, Simple Breakfast Flat Bread with smoked salmon, even Salmon Burgers, but when I want to make a simple piece of broiled salmon I want it on top of a ton of nutritious veggies, served with nuts or seeds for crunch and drizzled with a squeeze of lemon juice and olive oil to let the natural flavors shine through, this is my go-to dish. Watch this Superfood Salad Video to see which vegetables make it so...

Veggie Burgers Video

Every since Kenya declared that he was a vegetarian months ago I’ve had to retool our meals a bit. Luckily our family loves vegetarian food as both my husband and I have been vegan or vegetarian at some point in our adulthood, but it’s interesting watching the mind of an 8 year old who’s try commited to this lifestyle at such a young age. Even when we were on vacation a few weeks and I went to squash a horse fly he protested and made me give him the fly swatter. He’s never been a huge meat lover, but now he’s become an animal activist on top of it. It’s actually adorable to watch.

This Tuesday, I’m bringing back one of our favorites in this Veggie Burgers Video. We’ve never stopped loving or making them, but I’ve been trying to focus on making old favorites that are fully of protein and also really easy to make. Serve them with Grilled Lemon Asparagus and Cinnamon Sweet Potato Fries and you’ve got one of my favorite meals. These Veggie Burgers hit the spot and...

Modern Home Ec

Modern Home Ec - Weelicious

This week I’m launching a new video series I couldn’t be more excited about with the Design Network called Modern Home Ec. Each week will be a new short video where you get to learn everything from how to changing air filters, filling all the holes in the walls from where I’ve been hanging pictures to getting the toughest stains out of counter tops.

Modern Home Ec - Weelicious

I’ve always loved being in school and learning. Whether it was grade school, high school, culinary school or taking writing or pottery classes I’ve always felt like a sponge for picking up hobbies or new found talents that I’ve been able to spin into my work and home life. One talent I never figured out, though, was the fine art of Home Ec and learning the simplest tasks to fixing things around my house. How come no one ever taught me these little quick fixes? Let me tell you, it’s not just a man’s job!

You would think that even changing a lightbulb would be easy, but head to the hardware store and looking at the...
