amy_donovan For Sunday family dinners, I like to make something that takes a little more time + energy than my usual weeknight meals. Tonight's pasta bolognese (a new-to-me recipe) was *definitely* worth that time + effort! A perfect meal to finish up a great weekend. 1w

amy_donovan Off to deliver another new mama meal! Of all the great things my local MOMS Club does, this is my favorite -- bringing meals to new parents for a few weeks after baby arrives. It's nice to help out AND I love cooking for others. Win win! 1w
  •   pbhofmann I do the same with church and am always looking for good portable meal ideas. So far I've done quiches or meatball subs accompanied with salads, but I need more ideas?!? 1w
  •   pbhofmann This looks amazing, bye 1w
  •   pbhofmann Btw* 1w
  •   musiccitymise We sell dinner kits to help new mamas have fresh food for dinner! 1w
  •   amy_donovan @pbhofmann I love pasta dishes for stuff like this -- stuffed shells, lasagna, baked ziti, or even just a big batch of meatballs + marinara with pasta. I'm also a sucker for a good casserole, since they freeze well if the family doesn't need it right away -- like chicken + rice casseroles. Chili or soups have also been popular! Now that summer is approaching, I do need to come up with some lighter, warm-weather options, too. Quiche with a salad is actually great for summer, too! 1w
  •   amy_donovan @musiccitymise You know I love your business concept! It really is brilliant. =) 1w

  •   hagoesch Perfect! 1w

amy_donovan AMAZING vegetarian pho for lunch - my favorite in Nashville so far. Who recommended Koi's veg pho to me? @lesleyeats? @zarna? Whoever it was, thank you! 4w
  •   amy_donovan @tepe04 do they have a meatless one? If so, I must try. Even though I'm not vegetarian, I love meat-free pho (I guess because I love veggies?) 4w
  •   amy_donovan @lesleyeats PS - When I ordered it, I did ask for vegetarian pho, rather than vegetable pho, so presumably it is, or thye would've corrected me? 4w
  •   lesleyeats Maaaaybe 4w
  •   tepe04 @amy_donovan I don't believe they have a meatless one on their menu. Surely they would make one if asked, but I don't know if it would be a vegetarian broth. 3w
  •   amy_donovan @tepe04 I'm not vegetarian, so that works for me! Will be trying it. =) 3w
  •   amy_donovan @lesleyeats Update: called and the broth is NOT vegetarian, so it's a no-go for you. =/ Sorry! 3w
  •   lesleyeats Thanks for checking 3w

  •   heatherbee721 Funnily I hadn't heard of it until people posted about it on Instagram 4w
  •   jilleatschicago Totally getting one for my birthday tomorrow lol 4w
  •   joselina_o How was it? I've been thinking about to try one for some days :D 4w

  •   amy_donovan @jilleatschicago @joselina_o @everyneedsajess It was really good! Very sweet, but very good. =) Tomorrow is the last day they're offering them (it's a special promotion for the Frappuccino's 20th birthday), so your time is limited! I sound like an official Starbucks spokesperson, ha! 4w
