I was very fortunate that our first pregnancy happened two months after we started trying when I was 35 years old. We didn't think things would materialize so quickly! Then, our second baby took almost a year of trying, I was almost 40 years old, and we almost gave up. During that year, we learned a lot more about fertility and what you can do to increase your chances of getting pregnant especially for older women trying to conceive (and any other moms dads-to-be too). I thought I'd share what worked for us and some resources which could help others be successful in their pursuit of pregnancy.

Have you ever had the Trader Joe's Tahini Sauce? I had a period of time where I was obsessed with it. I love the garlicy goodness of this savory sauce and dip. I put it on bread. I put it in my Buddha bowls. I put it on salad. I licked the spoon clean. Then we moved to Japan for a year and I was completely cut off from this wonderful container of saucy sesame dip. This is when I created my COPYCAT Trader Joe's Tahini Sauce Recipe. My love and I were reunited!

Nearly all of us parents have been there with a sick baby. I think the absolute worst when they are unable to breastfeed or drink a bottle because they cannot breath through their tiny stuffed up nose. If things don't clear up, often times the dreaded ear infection and a trip to the pediatrician is next. This week we got to check out the BabySmile Nasal Aspirator which is an electronic machine to clear mucous out of a baby's nose at home. Find out more about how this device cleans out a baby's stuffy nose and we are giving one lucky person a chance to win one below!

This week, for Easter, I wanted to do something cute for the kids with food. Normally I make some sort of big veggie platter but this year we were in Japan and not going to do any big events or family gatherings for the holiday so I decided to create a cute vegan cheese chick face snack for the kiddos with a brand new Easy Vegan Cheese recipe.
I wanted a yellow cheese for a cute Easter food snack for the kids this week so I deconstructed another cashew cheese recipe I have here on the blog to eliminate the orange color yet retain the nice slice-able quality to this cheese. This is a very easy vegan cheese. It is made with simple and very inexpensive ingredients. Perhaps the miso would be the only item that you may not have laying around and could quite possibly be eliminated although I haven't tried that yet...
