Life: food making & new toy for Sofia

Sunday morning food preparation. This time involved preparing for Sofia. I made a batch of zucchini-pear-baby oatmeal. It was really easy, just steam zucchini and pear for few minutes and blend everything. Sofia liked this combo, she ate a bowl of it right away! 🙂


Last week I brought sandwiches from work for mom and really loved the bread. So my mission was to recreate it and make it healthier.


Whole wheat buns with sunflower seeds:

  • 1 1/3 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup WW flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 tsp yeast

All into the bread machine, choose the dough cycle, form the buns, let it rest for an hour in a warm place (oven with light on), brush with egg+water, top with raw sunflower seeds and bake at 380F for 15 min. Viola. Soft, spongy buns with some crunchiness.


For lunch we had baked salmon with salads.



I made a batch of vegan thousands islands and I love it!!!


Vegan thousands island dressing

  • 1/3 cup silken tofu
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp mustard grains
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2-4 Tbsp water

Blend all the ingredients and serve.

A photo session for our lovely lady with her new outfits! 🙂


I love that she’s been smiling more often lately. Sometimes even after an hour of crying/protesting, the moment I pick her up, she’d smile to me like nothing happened.




and her new toy: LeapFrog Learn & Groove Musical Table


she doesn’t stand yet, so I took off two legs so she can play with it on the side


she’s learning quickly how to play with it





she’s definitely having fun. It’s amazing how much fun and happiness I get just by looking at her playing with it. The wonder in her look is the most amazing I’ve ever seen. I’d do anything to keep that look FOREVER! 🙂

Q: What was your favorite toy as kid?
