✨ Are our new tropical mango bowls on your radar? They star mango, quinoa, pepper, avocado, and a creamy citrus ginger drizzle. The flavors are so fresh & delicious, they even won over my meat-and-potatoes dad! We made these for a project with @mangoboard and they quickly became a household favorite. The dressing is made mostly of cashews so it's plant-based and adds a bit of protein.

Larson update! At 15 months Larson can now feed himself his favorite @stonyfield #yobaby -- swipe right to see him at 6 months! Babies can start eating @stonyfield Yo Baby as early as 6 months (and he has been!). It's a special organic yogurt for kiddos that has probiotics for gut health! We love the flavor with no added sweeteners -- banana mango! Other updates: he's walking everywhere, talking up a storm, knows his animal sounds, and is incredibly inquisitive. I think he's smarter than me already! He also just created his first recipe: putting a piece of cereal on top of his yogurt before he put the spoon in his mouth! Genius. 😂 I can't believe how much he's changed in just a few months and it's all going by so fast 💓 .

🌴 A Couple Cooks TV brings you a NEW recipe: Tropical mango bowls with citrus drizzle (link in profile)! The recipe is 30 minutes, and SO delicious with the sweet & tangy mango! It's also vegan & GF. We made it for my parents when they were last here and they went crazy over it. It features beautiful & amazing Francis mangos, one of the 6 varieties available in the US. And it's got a tasty cashew citrus drizzle that brings in added protein! The recipe is over at www.acouplecooks.com and is sponsored by the @mangoboard, who is committed to education about mangos!

#SeriouslySimple series! We're starting a new series of 15-minute real food recipes for creative ways to make food fast. It's intended for those times where you need something healthy & delicious but have run out of ideas. This one is Turmeric Poached Egg Avocado Toast and it's so good! Stirring turmeric into the poaching water makes a stunning yellow egg that looks gorgeous in avocado toast. It's simple but seems special, which is exactly what this series is all about! Recipe is at the link in profile.

What are your thoughts, is this a series you're interested in? (Some people think some foods are too simple to be a recipe. We think not.)

Larson is in outdoor heaven here in Denver! He's a little tree hugger at heart (swipe right)🌲. Ok so maybe we tell him to hug the trees, but it's important to teach a love for the Earth young, right?! 😂 We had a fantastic time hiking yesterday with dear friends and he was absolutely in his element. 👉 How about you: is a love & care of the outdoors something important to you to teach your children, or future children?

✨ GIVEAWAY: @markbittman's NEW book How to Grill Everything! We made (swipe 👉) his grilled eggplant salad with yogurt, and it was fantastic! ALSO, did you know that if we hadn’t bumped into Mark Bittman, A Couple Cooks would not exist? And we’d be living very different lives. His book Food Matters is the reason we started eating more vegetables & cooking all from scratch in the first place, 10 years ago. We started a blog to share some of the delicious and healthy recipes we were making...and called it A Couple Cooks. SO we are so honored today to share a recipe from his new book today! 👏 Make sure to head to his feed @markbittman to follow along.

✨ Book tour next stop DENVER! May 19 2:00 pm at @tatteredcoverbookstore LoDo we'll be doing a Q&A -- will we see you? Bring all your friends, family, & cute kiddos! Larson wants to meet you! 👋 Here's what people are saying about Pretty Simple Cooking:
__
“This is absolutely one of the most incredible cookbooks I've had the honor to cook from EVER. In part because their recipes resonate with me personally: family-friendly, easy, accessible, packed with flavor and often comfort-food inspired. But I am also completely blown away by how well-written the book is and how detailed the recipes are. Sonja & Alex have a way of conveying the importance of eating real, wholesome food that isn't preachy or dogmatic. Instead, their approach is warm, inviting, relatable and incredibly thoughtful.” @lauraleabalanced

✨ NEW blog post & epic cheeseboard to celebrate @tillamook expanding to @krogerco stores all over the country (click the link in profile)! Any Tillamook fans out there? 👋 A few weeks ago, Alex and I traveled to Detroit to celebrate the expansion of Tillamook at Kroger stores nationwide! We live in Indianapolis, so we hadn’t yet enjoyed Tillamook products in our state. Everyone we know on the West Coast raves about Tillamook cheeses and ice creams, so we’re stoked that we can now find them at our local Kroger, which is walking distance from our house!
