I’m so happy to announce that as of March 17, Dan and I are parents to an adorable baby girl! She has my mile-long eyelashes, Dan’s crooked pinkies and her own amazing giant grin. I tried to savor every minute of my 7 week maternity leave, and I’m glad I did – she changed so much in such a short time! Right now, her favorites are staring out the windows at the trees in the back yard, her daddy’s silly voices and trying to join in on conversations with coos. She’s fascinated by her elephant mobile and lights, too.

I try to read to her at least a little bit every day. I know she’s probably not processing any sort of plot or story line at this point, so sometimes that means I’m reading things like On the Night You Were Born, and other times it means she gets to hear my thoughts on the latest Bon Appetit or portions of whatever book I’m reading.

She does seem to enjoy her Dr. Seuss books, though. Again, she’s probably not picking up on the words themselves yet, but the high-contrast primary color saturated images sure do capture her attention! There’s been a lot of Oh the Things You Can Think! and One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish reading going on around here. 

So when Circulon® asked me to come up with a recipe for Mother’s Day using their new Innovatum cookware line, I decided to draw some inspiration from Green Eggs and Ham. This springtime egg and ham hash is filled with asparagus, leeks and garlic scape pesto to give the dish its green color and a whole lot of flavor. 

Circulon®’s Innovatum line employs the TOTAL® Nonstick System, which helps your food cook more efficiently. It is dishwasher-safe, and comes in three materials: hard anodized aluminum, porcelain enamel and stainless steel. For this dish, I used the stainless steel 12” deep skillet, a hard anodized skillet and the porcelain enamel Dutch oven. Each piece worked wonderfully, and I didn’t have to worry about the hash cooking into the pan at all. Plus, the exteriors are beautiful!

Double Chocolate Waffles

These double chocolate waffles have a bit of melted dark chocolate in every bite. Have them as a snack or dessert, or spread them with peanut butter for a sweet breakfast treat!

Double Chocolate Waffles

I’m pretty proud of how my “stock the freezer before baby’s arrival” efforts are going. I’ll do a full update on everything I prepped in advance later, but so far we have lots of dinners ranging from butternut squash and pork lasagna to carnitas taquitos to chicken pot pie. We have a few snack-y items like raisin nut granola, and then a ton of waffles. Seriously, I can’t stop making waffles.  It feels like I should view that as a problem, because who seriously needs seven gallon bags of waffles in their freezer? At the same time, I just keep telling myself that we can have them for breakfast, dinner (we love breakfast-for-dinner!) and snacks, so the quantity isn’t a problem.  We’ll see how this pans out.

So far, I’ve frozen two batches of plain waffles, one of orange yogurt waffles and two of these double chocolate waffles. I know they sound more like dessert waffles, but if you spread them with some peanut butter for some protein and healthy fats, they can work for breakfast, too!

I made these for my first post as a Handle the Heat contributor. I’m so excited to be writing for Tessa on a monthly basis! Head on over to Handle the Heat to check out my double chocolate waffles recipe!

Here’s how to freeze waffles for later!
