Introducing Gideon Lev


Maternity leave is over… it’s back to blogging. Look for two healthy, flavorful recipes this week. Clue: one involves dark chocolate (of course)!

Gideon Lev was born on 11/2/2014. Some health issues followed that limited mama’s ability to write about one of her favorite things: cooking (and eating) food! Still, the two toddlers and I have been doing a ton of daily cooking with fresh, local ingredients.

Wewwww, babies are hard work. 😉 Both of the kids are big helpers and love to take care of their baby brother.

He’s our chubster!

My very best to all of my friends and fellow bloggers for a rewarding, healthy and happy 2014! I can’t wait to catch up on all of your recipes.

  4. Great pictures, Shanna! Glad if you are feeling well. “Babies are hard work” is the understatement of the century. Funny how something so tiny and cute can make for such craziness.

  7. Oh Shanna – it’s been such a long time since I last visited you and I was thinking about you just the other day – how are you – your family is adorable, the little guy has such a cute expression, isn’t it great the way you can see their personalities from such an early age? Lovely little chubster congrats. I remember you had avocado cravings during pregnancy still craving or have you just decided to eat more chocolate? Anway all the best – hope health issues are better Poli

  8. Congrats Shanna! Gideon is adorable, as are the rest of the family. Welcome to the madness to three kiddos. Babies are indeed lots of work, but I can’t say it gets easier, just different. They learn to talk, fight, love, cuddle, eat and eat and eat! Good thing your kids have a great mom who is an awesome cook and will feed them well.
