While I can’t say I’ve had any consistent cravings during pregnancy, I do find that simply seeing pictures of foods gives me an almost irresistible desire to eat whatever I see. Fast food coupons in the stack of junk mail? I start cutting up potatoes for oven fries that evening. Photo of a mug of hot cocoa in a blog post about a snow day? Put the kettle on! (And wish there was heavy cream in the fridge to whip up for a topping.)
Here are a few recent food favorites.
Our small group met on the afternoon of Valentine’s Day, and I served up some heart-sandwich cookies (some with Nutella filling and some with raspberry jam) and an easy chocolate cake (HT domestic life).
Last night, I made these chicken stir-fry wraps for dinner (pictured below left). Oh, they were yummy (and worth any subsequent heartburn)!
Tonight, we’re having what is probably our favorite new recipe of the past year: smoky beef tacos (pictured below center and right). We’ve served this meal for hospitality several times, and it’s been a hit with every guest. As I write, the meat has been in the oven for just over an hour, and my house smells delectable. Is it supper time yet?

If pictures of food make you, like me, salivate, hopefully these recipes will turn into a tasty treat for you to enjoy! (Bonus: I’m no expert, but I think the stir-fry and taco recipes are gluten free.)
