Fall Favorites 2

Confession, I keep a list of new “favorites” on my phone because…..well, I love it when people share their favorite things with me, so I thought I’d share a few of mine here! There’s so much to love this fall. New places to eat, new weeknight meals, easy “mom” fashion, delicious chocolate…and more! Here are a few things I’m currently loving. Be sure to share some of YOUR favorites in the comments below! I’d love to hear what you’re loving lately! 

New Restaurant

C•Square & Third Street Cafe– The kids and I went here after a hike and oh.my.gosh. I want to eat everything on the menu. Go there for coffee, lunch, a drink, a pastry or some local ice cream. You’ll love the atmosphere, the service and of course…the taste. 



The days can be long and busy, making it so important to take a moment to slow down and enjoy life. And chocolate is one of the things I enjoy most about life. Can I share my new favorite with you?

Born in Paris, Bissinger’s has a 350-year legacy and was once the chocolatier of choice for European nobility like King Louis XIV. Today, their confections are still fit for a king or queen! As they handcraft indulgent chocolate bars from small batch, timeless recipes and responsibly sourced ingredients. Now available in local QFC and Fred Meyer stores.dsc_0920Recently  our family got to try out a few of the flavors. We loved them all. Go grab some of this next time you need to treat yourself!dsc_0929

New Favorite Show: This is Us

It’s funny because the NW Healthy Mama site has NOTHING to do with TV, but I just can’t help but talk about this show. It’s under my skin and I can’t let it go. Have you watched the first two episodes?this-is-us

New Favorite Weeknight Dinner: Chicken Dijon

The sharpness of Dijon mustard is tamed just enough by the mellow cream in this timeless, French-inspired dish… Baked chicken in a creamy Dijon sauce. Be sure to add extra garlic to it and serve it with a side of rice and a veggie. Yum!chicken-dijon
