  •   stlfoodstyling Lol that's so cute! She has good taste! Love falafel sandwiches! 24h
  •   kyddsr Did you make falafel?! 24h
  •   amy_donovan @Kyddsr YES! First time, and it was a huge success. Recipe *just* went up on the blog a few minutes ago - http://www.fearlesshomemaker.com/2015/01/falafel-burgers/ - I tried both a bigger "burger" version + a smaller, traditional falafel-sized version. Both turned out awesome, but I prefer the burger + D preferred the smaller ones. Baby A liked them both equally. =D 24h

amy_donovan Pork ramen, featuring a hodgepodge of ingredients that I had in the house. And it is delicious! Shows that those clean-out-the-fridge meals can be great, too. 3d

amy_donovan Attempted a homemade iced vanilla latte this morning. Let's take a sip + see how it tastes! 2w
  •   amy_donovan Update: It's actually really good! Not exactly like an iced latte, though. More milky, mild, + sweet - sorta like a melty "coffee milk" (which my New England friends will understand.) Gonna play around with more espresso / homemade vanilla syrup + perfect it! 2w
  •   tepe04 @amy_donovan looks delish, but it's cold out!! brrr! 2w
  •   amy_donovan @tepe04 I drink iced stuff year 'round! I know that's crazy. 2w
  •   apayne_17 Oooh, coffee milk! I that stuff! 2w

amy_donovan Meatloaf doesn't have the most glamorous reputation, but when it's done right, it's one of my favorite comfort food meals. Plus, throw some herbs on top, + it plates up a lot prettier. 2w

amy_donovan Homemade Cheesy Tater Tots! Took leftover mashed potatoes, added cheddar, rolled into tots, dredged in flour then egg then breadcrumbs, then fried 'em up. Fearless Baby DEFINITELY approved. =) 3w
  •   amy_donovan Thank you @viveksurti for the awesome inspiration! Y'all, check out his tater tot recipe at http://www.viveksepicureanadventures.com/2011/02/meatless-monday-homemade-tater-tots/ - that's what I used as my starting point, + made some tweaks from there! 3w
  •   stlfoodstyling Well I'm sold! And that picture of fearless baby is adorable!! 3w
  •   erinopk Fearless Baby is all AND IT WAS GOOD. 3w
  •   amy_donovan @erinopk If there's one thing she doesn't mess around with, it's potatoes. That smug smile says it all. 3w
  •   viveksurti Glad Miss A enjoyed them! 3w
  •   leelalicious Awww....isn't she ever cute! And that sounds yummy 3w
  •   localforkful a construction worker was just describing these to me the other day...and I drooled! 3w
  •   amy_donovan @localforkful They turned out awesome! Not exactly like the tater tots we normally eat (like at The Pharmacy) because those are shredded potatoes. These are more like cheesy potato bombs - crispy on the outside, warm and cheesy and creamy on the inside. Mmmmm. 3w

amy_donovan My Lightened-Up Chicken Enchiladas may be slightly *less* light due to the extra portion of cheese + queso dip I added on top. Whoops! Totally worth it, though. 3w

amy_donovan Every day in 2014, I wrote down one memory with my daughter. Some were BIG - her first steps, her first words. Some were little - a perfect snuggle or a tiny adventure. I read through them all today, quietly, during her naptime, and am so full of joy at what this year has brought. Tonight, I'll write one final 2014 memory, and tuck this away in her baby scrapbook, where one day we'll read it together. 4w
