Your children are adorable!
Thank you so much, Anna. And I appreciate you stopping by to visit the blog! 🙂 Happy Sunday.
Look at those cutie-patooties. Adorable family.
Same to you + thank you, Chef Janet. Sometimes my husband and I wondered how we made such cute kids, haha. 😉 As always, it is so appreciated that you stopped by. Your blog is fabulous. Everyone, visit http://chefjanetrorschach.com for a bit of fun and inspiration.
I Love your blog!! And I finally downloaded the WordPress app and can follow your blog 🙂
Thank you, Madame Nicolescu. I am so happy that you stopped by the blog! You should start a blog about all of the awesome restaurants that you and Brian visit in Germany. I love your foodie photos. *Muah*. Have a great weekend.
Thank you for stopping by, Maria! I am so glad that you are here. I hope that all is well in Mannheim. Lots of love – Shanna
Good for you that with young children you still find the time to blog and cook!
Thank you, Stefan. You are also quite busy – beyond measure – and cook amazing things. Your blog is an inspiration to me.
Thank you, Shanna. It’s just that most women I know who used to cook a lot before they had babies, all but stopped cooking afterwards. Kudos to you!
I don’t want to imagine a world where I don’t cook. Then what would my hubby and I eat? 😉 It’s easy to do what you love with prioritization – I still can’t believe what you do in the kitchen. Amazing.
I was making a stew and salad for dinner last night at 19:00, the kids fast asleep. Better late than never. Thanks for your cooking encouragement!
On working days I get home around 19:30 and then start cooking. That is usually a pasta dish that is ready in half an hour or less, and I always make sure to have all the groceries already.
That is quite a long day! You must prepare in advance to cook at 19:30, I am sure, with proper groceries and a bit of prep work. Though a glass of wine while cooking seems to curb the hunger. 😉 You eat pasta every night? How are you and your husband so thin? 🙂
The only prep work I do sometimes is put something in the sous-vide cooker 12, 24, 48 or 72 hours before.
Don’t drink wine when I have to work the next day. Unless it’s a special occasion, which we sometimes make up 😉
We eat pasta almost every night. We stay thin because we share 1/3 pound of dry pasta between the two of us.
Sous-vide sounds amazing.
No wine at all? I hear a glass or two a day is great for your health. Or so I tell myself.
Oh, yes, portion control – good for you – it is easier to eat less when the food is delicious and satisfying! 😉
Sounds perfect to me! 🙂
The wine, the kids, the man dressed in green or the turtle? Hehe!
Sure does look like one happy life! The perfect power family 🙂
Thank you, Ada. Your comments are so kind and generous. 🙂
Oh, your littles are adorable! I really treasure preparing dinner for my family most evenings. I think it’s part of that feeling of family…coming together to enjoy a meal (even something very simple) at the end of the day.
Looking forward to seeing what you’ll share with us in the coming weeks!
Thank you for your generous and warm words. I also enjoy your blog. Your photos are just exquisite! Your family is so lucky to have a loving mom to cook them delicious meals each night. Have a lovely day!
Hi Shanna–Love the shot with the turtle 🙂 and yes, your children are beautiful. L’chayim indeed. ❤
Thank you, Marisa. Your comment is so sweet and incredibly kind. Thank you – and L’chayim! Have a great week. Best wishes, Shanna
Hi Shanna–Thanks to *you* for looking through my blog as well! I’m flattered. And I’m impressed that you have as many followers as you do when your blog is relatively new; may I ask your secret?
I have nominated you for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award. Your lovely blog is well worthy of more readers 😉 If you wish to participate, check out the rules here: http://tuscasblogg.wordpress.com/2014/04/15/dragons-loyalty-award/
Take care and keep on blogging!
Thank you for the nomination. I am honored. 🙂
I love your blog and your recipes are amazing. My husband, Dustin is a PGY5 in Ortho at UNM. Best wishes and thanks for inspiring me to branch out a bit with my cooking….you pulled me out of my cooking rut!
Hi, Lynsey! Thanks for your warm comments and for stopping by. We cook every night. Some meals are simply, others take more preparation, but it is a treat to eat something homemade! Certain recipes, like the quinoa gratin on this site, are a great way to make a few meals at once or leftovers for lunches (better than the cafeteria at UNMH!). I met Dustin about four years ago at a party; he’s a great guy. Best of luck to you both in your new, post-residency adventures!
