Hey everyone! I spent the last couple of weeks on a wonderful holiday break. One of the huge perks of my job is the break we get from Christmas to New Year’s. The way that the calendar fell this year, it got a little bit longer.

I’m feeling renewed from some time off and focused on making my posts more regular here (yeah!). My goal is to post four times per week. It’ll be on the weekdays and then I’ll use the weekends to photograph, grocery shop and meal plan. I’m definitely looking forward to life here on Christen in the Kitchen for 2015. I’m going to try some new things (more videos and some healthy living posts to keep us all on track for our New Year’s resolutions), but also keep sharing recipes that I love (and I’ve got a few really good ones coming up this week!). For now, here are some outtakes from my winter break. Also, follow me on Instagram so you can keep up with what’s going on in my kitchen and also my family. 


Hadley is always hamming it up.
