Happy Valentine’s Day!

If you’re single, I hope you’re hanging out with your friends, stuffing your face with red velvet cake and if you have a lover, well, I hope you’re stuffing eachother’s faces with cake.

Either way, bonus points if said cake comes in a heart shape!

All jokes aside, I don’t have a cake recipe today – although all other food bloggers out there do. I love seeing all the inventive things that are made on this holiday.

If you didn’t know already, I’m a horrible baker. A couple of years ago, I wanted to surprise Lu with a molten lava cake, but it was a complete fail that turned into a mug cake.

Instead of baked goods, I like to do delicious brunches or obviously, dinner. I think cooking together is one of the most romantic activities you can do together!

Whisking eggs, seasoning with salt and pepper, clinking wine (or mimosa) glasses, smelling delicious cooking aromas – it’s sensual and rewarding.

Sometimes, I ask Lu to do some mincing or chopping in the kitchen, but his attention span quickly weans and frankly, I’m a bit of a control freak in the kitchen, so I get it.

Today’s recipe is one of those weekend breakfasts that can come together super quickly, is easy to cook, and is packed with nutrients, flavor, and frankly, is beautiful!

Add it to your list to cook for a loved one – or heck, just make it for yourself!

Lol I am a control freak in the kitchen too, but trying to be better.
Reese says:
Dang that looks good, I love me a good, runny egg. I just riced a cauliflower for the first time, now I'll have to try sweet potato.
Anonymous says:
I don't seem to have a Blade D. I have three and they aren't labeled other than one has 3mm and one has 6 mm at the top (These are the ones I use for noodles). The third one has just a flat blade with no label. What does Blade D look like?
sandy says:
If you have three blades, then the smallest "noodle" blade is the equivalent to the D blade; making spirals the size of spaghetti.
Brook says:
I made this for breakfast this morning with leftover spiralized sweet potatoes and it was delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you

rio and sol are 10 weeks old today! 👶🏻👶🏻 10 weeks! 2.5 months! let's chat.⁣ 🙏🏼

rio is much like luca. he loves to be held and needs more touch or movement to fall back asleep. he loves to stare at things in a serious way, especially high-contrast art for babies, so I love reading him books while I hold him (he's the best snuggler.)⁣

sol is my chill boy. he's a good sleeper. he smiles and loves to talk. he's squealing and making his goo-goo-ga-ga sounds all the time, I love chatting with him. he's a bit more like roma as a baby, a bit more independent. he makes the funniest faces and serves up the grimaces like luca used to.⁣

what's funny about twins is that just when you think you know their personality differences, they change - they'll swap. 🤷🏻‍♀️ and to tell them physically apart, there are two key differences:⁣
⏺ rio has a wider head and sol has a more narrow, round forehead⁣
⏺ rio weighs a full pound more than sol⁣

and yes, I have mixed them up a few times! I've been carrying one around, talking to them by name, and then all of a sudden, when I go to pick the other one up, I realize I mixed them up! 😱when they're not together or you're not looking at them straight on, it can be confusing! one of my favorite games is texting my family photos of them and saying, "who's who?!" they get it right 50% of the time, ha!⁣

so far, having twins is just so cool. it's so cool that there are two of them and they are identical! every week that goes by, their personalities shine and I am having so much fun getting to know them - and getting twice the cuddles. and yes, they do sometimes cry at the same exact time, but you just have to pause, gather yourself, and get your soothing game on.⁣ 💪🏼

I have to say, while having newborn twins and 2 other older kids at the same time has its challenges, I give a LOT of credit to those who have twins as their first baby experience - I can't imagine going into this not knowing what I already knew about raising babies. talk about overwhelming! 🤯 all moms are crushing it, but especially those first time moms with multiples - woop! bless you. 👏🏼 #identicaltwinboys #identicaltwins #monoditwins #twinmom #twinboys
