Happy new year, everyone! I hope 2017 is off to a great start for you. I’m popping in to let you know that we’re interviewing for a paid Video Content Creator to help us move forward with creating and sharing videos for our best recipes. This position will entail generating 1 to 2 videos per week. The videos will be shared on the Oh She Glows blog and social media channels, and potentially uploaded to the app.
I have to say, this blog series is so much fun to put together each week. Even though I reply to your comments and questions a couple of times each day on the blog, making this round-up inspires me to dig a bit deeper and try new things to help troubleshoot. I also learn so many interesting things from you all, and absolutely love sharing your tips for others to read! Let’s dive in, shall we?!
Welcome to your holiday cookie headquarters!Can you believe it’s the last month of 2016? I’m having a hard time wrapping my mind around the entire year. This month is extra special because my sister, nephews, brother-in-law, mom, and stepdad are spoiling us with a visit over the holidays. We’re also hosting all the Liddons for a fun get-together. Our house is going to be a-boppin’ (Home Alone mannequin-dancing styles), I tell ya. I’m trying not to freak out about the hosting/cooking responsibilities while taking care of a newborn and toddler. Eek. (The good news is we won’t be traveling in a car/plane with screaming kids this year and the wine rack is stocked. I’ll take it.) Anyway, I can’t wait to celebrate Arlo’s first Christmas and Adriana’s third with the fam. I’m probably going to take about 645 pictures and another 87 videos.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re celebrating with friends, family, or a special someone today, I hope you have a great one. And if all else fails, I have a feeling my Easy Vegan Sugar Cookies, Pink Power Detox Smoothie, or Cheerful Vegan Nachos will give your taste buds the lovin’ they’re looking for. 😉
After my ambitious triple-blog-post week just after Arlo was born, I lost the motivation to write. I even had a few recipes and photos uploaded to my drafts folder, but I just couldn’t write the actual posts.
Happy Saturday, friends! It’s been a while since I posted a recipe on the weekend, but many of you seemed eager for these festive cookies after I gave a few sneak peeks on Insta Stories. I figured since I had the recipe all tested and ready, why wait until Monday to share? No one should have to wait for Valentine’s (or Galentine’s) Day dessert, I say! Plus, if snow is keeping you at home this weekend, these are a fun treat to whip up with the family indoors. My kiddos love cutting shapes into the dough and piping frosting into their mouths onto the cookies—they also know how to have a hoot with those sprinkles, as you might notice in the very last photo below!
I’m squeaking in before our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend to share this gem of a banana bread recipe with you all. I figured it would make the perfect addition to your weekend breakfast table! We’ve been making this banana bread for weeks and weeks (you may have seen this recipe added to the app last month, too!), and it’s become nothing short of an obsession. (Truth be told, I have to hide it from Adriana some days because it’s all she wants to eat. Okay, okay, I have to hide it from myself, too.) I’ve had some great feedback from kids and adults outside the Liddon household as well.
I know what you’re thinking: Ask Angela? What happened to my Friday FAQs?! I decided to do a little name change for this series. My alternate title contender was “Ask Angela and I’ll try my very best not to steer you toward an epic cooking fail”. Lol. But that title proved to be a little long. 😉 Semantics aside, it’s business as usual over here! Although I gotta say the above photo has always made me chuckle…I don’t think there’s ever been a time outside of that photoshoot when you would’ve caught me casually lounging in bed with breakfast while working away on my computer. It seemed like a fun idea at the time, though!
Update (Oct 19/16): We had a whopping 1780 entrants for the Vitamix contest. Amazing! The winner is Instagram user Allymom2many, who made the all-purpose cheese sauce. Ally please email your complete mailing address to contests2016 @ohsheglows.com by October 26, 2016 to claim your prize. Thank you to everyone who entered!
How’s your February chugging along so far? Mine is off to a solid start, and I’m already feeling a bit more positive now that the doldrums of January are past! As for things on the OSG front, we’re working away on our rebooted Friday FAQs and Things I’m Loving Lately series, as well as a couple new ones that will be launching in the coming weeks. And, of course, plenty of delicious plant-based recipe testing is going down, too. Things are just a-bopping around here!! It’s been fun getting into a groove with regular blogging again, and I’m so thrilled you seem to be enjoying the recent posts too.
