Maybe it’s because I’m 39 weeks pregnant… Or maybe it’s because it’s going to be in the 90’s here in Portland this week… Or maybe it’s because I’ve eaten so well all throughout this pregnancy and only gained 26 lbs. But I can’t stop thinking about ice cream. It’s as if my body’s finally like, “Ok, we got this, now release the preggo cravings!” Whatever the reason for the sudden cravings, my husband certainly hasn’t been complaining, especially when I announced I was making ice cream.
Oh pregnancy cravings… I’ve actually managed to make it through most of the past 9 months without any crazy cravings. Aside from an unquenchable thirst for coconut water within the first 4 weeks (probably because I was dehydrated), I’ve thankfully been able to eat really healthy and what I want. Most of the time I’ve had a harder time actually figuring out what it was that I wanted. Until recently. These past couple of weeks the cravings have finally hit me. Hard. One night, it was an old school chicken noodle casserole (and totally not from scratch, the kind that uses canned cream of mushroom soup and fried french onions). Then it was meatloaf (stay tuned for that recipe!). Then it was a spinach and beet salad. And recently- chicken wings. Parmesan Garlic wings, to be exact.
Who else loves to snack? Sometimes, I’d rather just eat a variety of different appetizers for dinner rather than a main dish. Which is why homemade crackers and chips are some of my favorite things to make because they’re delicious little vessels to promote snacking! Wheat Thins have been one of my favorite snack crackers since I was a kid and they’re actually surprisingly easy to make!
You guys. You have no idea how long I’ve been waiting to make English Muffins again. I’d made them a loonngg time ago in the early early days of this blog, but I haven’t had the chance to make many since!
Can you all believe it’s Spring already?! Seriously, where did this year go? I feel like April just came out of nowhere and having a super early Easter in March totally threw me off. Which means Mother’s Day is going to be here in no time, too! Since my lovely mom is visiting us next week for our baby shower and since Mother’s Day is just around the corner, I’ve decided to start celebrating early with this round up delicious cookies that are on the top of my Must Make! List.
