Freezer Meals After Having A Baby

Freezer Meals After Having A Baby // The Haas Machine When I gave birth to my first child, I prepared a few meals to “stock our freezer” & by that I mean I think I made 2 or 3 lasagnas. After Ruby entered the world, I was very well prepared for her arrival (we had her room organized, diapers prepped, & all those adorable little onesies washed & hung) but I didn’t spend as much time prepping for what would be our new normal. Especially for the first 2-3 months, I was completely unable to cook, so that surprised us. I didn’t realize how much time nursing would take, nor did I realize the kind of pain my body would be in while it recovered from giving birth. Continue reading

Portobello Kale Burger

Portobello Kale Burger // The Haas Machine

Summer is all about simple delicious meals that don’t take hours to prepare. While we’re not vegetarians by any stretch of the imagination, sometimes our meat budget is extended just a bit & we are encouraged to cut back. These burgers are the perfect meal for such a time as these. I have to admit, when I first started working on this recipe, I was incredibly skeptical. I just don’t like many veggies burgers (except these & these of course). I just figure, if you’ve got to pile on several toppings just so you can enjoy your veggie burger, then it’s not worth it to me. GIVE ME THE MEAT! I was quite pleased to discover that these bad boys are flavorful, hearty, & absolutely delicious all on their own. Plus they are packed with all kinds of veggies so you’re really doing something well for your body when you chow down on these burgers.  Continue reading

Homemade Fudgsicles

I might be guilty of eating one of these fudgsicles for breakfast a time or two (or three) recently. But do not fear! There’s no added sugar & they contain all kinds of healthy ingredients like bananas & coconut milk & peanut butter, so they’re not the worst breakfast choice I’ve ever made in my life. I figure, summer is short & before you know it, we’ll be packing away our fans & flip flops & complaining about the freezing cold while stuffing our faces full of lasagna, so we might as well enjoy the stickiness of summer with more stickiness that is popsicles.

Roasted Strawberry & Toasted Coconut Popsicles

Roasted Strawberry & Toasted Coconut Popsicles // The Haas Machine

Strawberries! Strawberries! Strawberries! You guys went ga-ga over the Strawberry Custard Pie I shared on Tuesday, so I hope you’ll dig these popsicles, too. I mean, really, what’s not to love with the combination of strawberries & coconut. No wait. The combination of roasted strawberries & toasted coconut, because it does matter a TON. By simply popping your oil-glazed strawberries in the oven for a bit & slowly bringing your coconut to a lovely shade of golden brown, your life will forever be changed. Now I kinda want to roast & toast everything that comes through our kitchen…  Continue reading

Strawberry Custard Pie with Dark Chocolate Crust

Strawberry Custard Pie // The Haas Machine

This year we went a bit overboard & picked 22 pounds of strawberries. Besides making jam & shoving my face with handfuls of the delicious fruits in between every meal for a week, I discovered a few new recipes to gush over that I’ll be sharing with you over the next few days. I am officially dubbing this strawberry week, even though strawberry picking season is over & done for in these parts. I just can’t help it… strawberries are one of my favorites & practically scream of summer.  Continue reading
