As a mom of three, I know just how difficult it can be to prepare a delicious meal each night of the week. I love to cook, but sometimes, there aren’t enough hours in the day to get it all done.

I’ve rounded up 15+ delicious slow cooker recipes that you can easily make in a morning or afternoon. At dinnertime, you’ll have a hot meal ready to go with very little prep! A MUST for busy moms! Click through to see them all…

8 Latino-Inspired Halloween Costumes

The best part about Halloween is coming up with creative costumes (okay, maybe it’s all the free candy, but the costumes are really fun). I’m the kind of person who starts brainstorming ideas for next year’s Halloween costume on November 1st.

Last year, we all dressed up as The Fresh Beat Band (Liam’s favorite!) and this year, we will be superheroes (Liam is obsessed with Spiderman and insists we all dress up as his favorite heroes). But I started thinking about some Latino-inspired costumes that would be really fun.

Here are a few ideas that might pique your interest:

If you have twins or multiple children, here are some GREAT costume ideas. Get creative this Halloween!

Margot's First Foods

When I became pregnant with Margot, I planned on doing Baby Led Weaning when it was time for her to begin exploring solid foods. With my first two children, I made my own purees. It was fine, but it took a lot of time. The more I read about Baby Led Weaning, the more I was sold on the idea. It’s basically the idea that you skip purees and let little ones discover and try new foods on their own – a chunk of banana, a slice of apple, a cube of cheese, etc.

Recently though, I felt like Margot was ready for solid foods. She seemed hungry all the time and not entirely satisfied after each time I nursed her. To do Baby Led Weaning though, babies should be a little bit older, and able to sit up unassisted, etc. Margot is not quite there.

Last week, I went ahead and gave Margot her first food. I roasted a sweet potato in the oven and pureed it with a little breastmilk, to reach a smooth consistency. No surprise to us at all, she devoured it! She was so eager to eat and ate like a seasoned pro.
