The BoldHeartMama desires to enjoy living out the choices that she’s made for herself and for her family. She is a relentless learner: curious, inquisitive, and open to the possibilities of her life and of the human condition. She understands that there isn't one right way—she asks questions that dig deeper to make sense of it all and to find her own path.

She pays attention to and nurtures whatever it is she really cares about, letting go of the rest (for now) knowing she can't do and be everything all at once. She embraces her imperfections in favor of "good enough"—her imperfect self, her imperfect home, her imperfect mothering, her imperfect desires—and she never stops evolving as a woman and mother. She is a BoldHeart, authentic and true to herself.

The BoldHeartMama knows there is only this one life and she's all in. She is present and engaged and making things happen. Her intuition is her guide. She seeks to be inspired and relies on her creativity and her resourcefulness to solve the big and little challenges that she and her family face together as they navigate their relationships and their world.

The BoldHeartMama is willing to take calculated risks to make her biggest dreams come true. She is living out her BoldHeart in the moment, making small moves and taking little steps that add up, and she's cultivating a good life for herself and her family in the process. Read More!

CSA Week 11

In this week's CSA bag I found:

Salad tomatoes, eggplant, heirloom tomatoes, corn, cucumber,
lime-basil, scallions, cherry tomatoes

That's a lot of tomatoes, folks!!! I haven't yet attempted Gazpacho, but it looks like this week is my week!

I'm one quarter Filipino and I grew up eating a lot of rice alongside a few staple dishes. I recently decided that I wanted to learn to cook at least a handful more in order to add them to my arsenal of go-to favorites. I hope to offer at least a sprinkling of culinary culture to our kids' palettes!

Ginaatang Mais was my first recipe. It's a chilled coconut rice soup with fresh corn added. Our nanny who is also Filipino pointed out that the soup is meant to be eaten after waking from an afternoon nap. I loved the idea and so Roscoe and I shared a bowl of the sweet and creamy rice after a glorious 2 hour siesta. We sat together on the front porch in the middle of an intensely hot day and practically licked the bowl clean. The experience was both refreshing and fun! I hope we get to do it again soon.

Another highlight from last week: the buttermilk corn muffins. It's a really quick and versatile recipe--we had so many blueberries leftover from a blueberry pancake breakfast earlier in the week that I modified the ingredients and whipped up a second batch. The perfect summer treat!

How I used last week's produce:
Eggplant: eggplant fries
Peppers and cucumbers: mahi mahi with peach, cucumber and habanero salsa
Heirloom Tomatoes and Basil: basil-garlic mayonnaise BLT
Watermelon: eaten as is, I haven't had a seeded melon in a very long time--I forgot how much work it is to pick out those seeds!
Cherry Tomatoes: mozzarella and tomato salad
