Food blogging is hard while pregnant. It’s like everything and anything I’ve ever loved I now can’t even stand the thought of. Zucchini for instance (Kate knows all about this love of mine) used to be my go-to for our Sunday night grill-outs, and now I walk by it at the market like it doesn’t even

Home sweet home! That is how I’m feeling this week after a whirlwind of travel over the previous two. Over the last 12 days, I have gone on three different trips. Two were for fun, one was for work (but was secretly still pretty fun). First, I went to Philly with my mom and sister for my cousin’s
