Getting back into the kitchen.

I made this caprese lasagna with spicy turkey sausage last night. Recipe here.
I started cooking again before Eli was even a week old. My generous brother-in-law and sister-in-law brought food to us for the first few days, but I knew that we couldn't have food brought to us or order out forever so I had to get back into the kitchen. I did stick to fairly easy meals for awhile though. I have started to make more "elaborate" meals again and realized that I really miss cooking. It can definitely be relaxing to me (unless something isn't going my way!). However, it can be difficult to entertain a 3 month old while in the kitchen, but I either put him in one of my wraps or set him up in his bouncy seat so he can watch me. Lately he's been really good at just hanging out in his seat, which makes it so much easier for me! I have tons of recipes bookmarked to cook and bake so I'm excited to try them out. You can look at my For the Love of Cooking and Sweet Treats boards to find inspiration of your own. I then move recipes over to my Tried it, liked it board if they are keepers!

What new recipes have you made lately?

  1. Still impressed at you! We have almost entirely super simple meals. N will hang in N's bouncy chair if awake, but I can't d much when he's sleeping. Someday...
