Woo hoo! You made it to 2017! How does it feel? It should feel great because you’ve got a clean slate, with a fresh new year ahead of you! How inspiring! If I learned anything last year it’s that people like to snack. And sometimes snacking behavior gets a little sloppy. But, luckily for you, I’ve come up with a January series titled “20 Snacks Around 200 Calories” to get your snacking back on track!
It’s hard to know what to say to someone going through infertility. It’s even harder to know what to say when they reach a pivotal part of their treatment. What can you do and how can you show your love and support? Even if you’re the one struggling with infertility, these tips can be helpful. Share them with friends and family so they can offer support in the most beneficial way.

I’ve been baking cookies for a long time. And baking is in my DNA. Both of my grandmothers and my grandmother’s grandmothers (and probably their grandmothers too) all baked. It seemed to bypass my mom, but hey, it just wasn’t (and still isn’t) her thing. But I’ve got the baking bug and cookies are my jam! And these Two Bite Snickerdoodles? Well, they’re dedicated to those fine baking ladies before me!
Are you an eggnog fan? I sure am. For me, eggnog elicits so many wonderful childhood Christmas memories. Ironically, it does the same for my husband. There’s just something special about this festive holiday drink! And because of that, I used it to make overnight oats! Oh yes I did! I made Eggnog Overnight Oats and they’re the perfect way to make your breakfast “merry!”
Happy holiday party-time! Woo hoo! Time to celebrate and have fun! Yes, I do believe in fun and yes, I do think you can indulge (even when struggling with infertility) in some fun holiday drinks. HOWEVER, there should be a self-imposed limit to the celebratory drinking. Hear me out, ok! Today’s Fertility Friday blog post is dedicated to my Holiday Drink Tips.
Holiday parties are the best!!! Or are they? Hmmmm, as I get older, I’m just not so sure. All of those strategically-placed ingredients on demitasse spoons and fancy mixed drinks served by handle-bar mustache, suspender-wearing bar tenders, leave me exhausted. I don’t want fancy, I want delicious! Don’t you? That’s why I created this simple appetizer for Avocado Pomegranate Toastettes that look pretty and taste great. I’ll leave the drinks and bar tenders up to you!
Oh, hi EXTREME cold, I didn’t miss you…at all. Your bone-chilling wind and icy snow flakes don’t really do much to make me smile. Because, well, my face is frozen. But alas, it’s winter and I do live in the Midwest. So instead of continuing my rant on the cold, I will beat it with my new recipe for Warm Chai-Spice Pom-Apple Cider.

I hear some of you groaning, but trust me, EVERYONE appreciates a homemade pumpkin pie. And this recipe is easy, I promise, so this year, I invite you to make this fabulous dessert!
