Obsessed with the challenge dish this week! Cozy, hearty & healthy Seafood & Potato Stew. 🙌🏼 When I asked what kind of dishes you wanted to see, fish/seafood was a popular request! One of my favorite places to get amazing quality wild fish is from @milkandeggscom AND it gets delivered straight to my front door. So all I have to do is whip up this stew in 30 minutes or less, and dive in face first with a big ol’ crusty piece of bread. 🤤 You’re welcome. #lifeisbutadish #sponsored _ Use code “Lifeisbutadish” for 20% off your first order _ Link in profile - http://www.lifeisbutadish.com/weekly-dish-inspiration-95/

I may not have changed out of my pajamas or put on a bra today, but one thing I did do was finish the blog post about our anniversary trip to New York City! It’s a long post, full of recommendations for things to do, restaurants, shows and more. I poured my heart into this one so I hope you enjoy it and find it useful for your next trip to the city! #lifeisbutadish #libadtravels #laneygotzach _ Link in profile - http://www.lifeisbutadish.com/life-is-but-a-dish-guide-to-new-york-city/

Food can be simple and absolutely delicious if you have good quality ingredients. Say hello to my favorite healthy lunch that you can make in 10 or less. _ I brushed the salmon lightly with olive oil, sprinkled with salt, pepper, garlic powder and a drizzle of coconut aminos (can also use soy sauce). Popped it my toaster oven on the broil setting for 7-9 minutes then removed and finished with sesame seeds. While the salmon cooked I sautéed up some already cooked rice with a little ghee and tossed in my favorite greens. Serve it all in a bowl with some fresh avocado and you've got yourself one pretty amazing meal! _ I’m sharing this dish and a whole lot more over on the @moinkbox Instagram page today. Go check it out for some inspiration! #lifeisbutadish

This week’s Dish Inspiration is live! I LOVE the challenge dish and I cannot wait to make it live on Monday! These Slow Cooker Turkey Meatballs are such a crowd pleaser, and can be eaten alone, over pasta, rice or with a salad. AND they can be made in your Instant Pot, start to finish 30 minutes or less (with a 9 minute cook time). Get your shopping list, grab your ingredients (you’ll probably have most on hand), and let’s get cooking! If you’ve made these before, chime in and let us know what you think! #lifeisbutadish #libadinspiration _ Link in profile - http://www.lifeisbutadish.com/weekly-dish-inspiration-94/

NYC ♥️ Take me back! _ I was actually so surprised to learn how many of you live in New York! I think my NY following is larger than LA, or close to it! 🌃 _ I’m curious, where are you from?! Tell everyone in the comments below! ⬇️ Let’s all be real life internet friends! What? That’s a thing. 😆 #lifeisbutadish #libadtravels

1. Break into florets. 2. Toss with olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder. 3. Roast at 375 degree for 25-30 minutes until lightly browned on the outside and cooked through. 4. Devour. 😋 #lifeisbutadish

Need an afternoon pick-me-up? Rather than a coffee, tea or sugary treat, try this Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie that tastes like a chocolate milkshake but will refuel your body when you need it most. So, whether it’s your afternoon snack, breakfast or post workout fuel, JUST MAKE IT. Sorry for yelling, bye. #lifeisbutadish _ Link in profile - http://www.lifeisbutadish.com/chocolate-peanut-butter-smoothie/

We thought about going to Hawaii to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. I’ve never been and it’s a major bucket list item for me. But when I really sat down and thought about how I wanted to celebrate us, I wanted cozy, romantic, great food, entertainment and energy. Which is exactly how I would describe our wedding. _ New York City was the perfect fit. We had never explored the city alone without kids, without an event or a wedding to attend. It was just us and no agenda but our own. _ It was an absolute whirlwind of a week packed with SO MUCH FOOD, culture, friends, talent and almost 26 miles of walking. I cherished every moment and already miss my winter wardrobe. _ We didn’t get to even half of what we wanted to, but man did we cram it in. Thankful for @zhs818 for keeping up with my crazy. ♥️ And thanks to all of you who gave us suggestions and followed along with us for the week. _ New York, we love you and we’ll be back before our 20 year.🥂#laneygotzach #lifeisbutadish #libadtravels _ P.S. Per your request a full blog post with our NY faves coming soon. In the meantime, the whole trip is saved on my highlights.

I still have one meal left in NYC, but I think it’s safe to say that this was my absolute favorite. From the perfectly lit table that sat next to the rainy window, to the company, to every last bite. I might not have made it to all the restaurants I wanted to this trip, but let’s just say I’m fully satisfied. This is what dreams are made of. 🙌🏼 #lifeisbutadish #libadtravels #laneygotzach

Happy New Year! 🥳 Raise your hand if you made an epic cheese board over the holidays and immediately felt like the coolest person on the planet? 🙋🏻‍♀️ Isn’t is so rewarding? Cheers to many more cheese platters in 2019. 🥂🧀 _ I’m currently on my way to NYC to eat all the food, see all the shows, and probably eat more food. Follow along in stories this week for lots of behind the scenes and your favorite, lots of Zach. #lifeisbutadish #morezach

I’m a celebrator. 🎉 In case you haven’t noticed. I love to celebrate birthdays, weddings and anniversaries of all kinds. Today we celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. The best New Years Eve Party there ever was. 🎊 If you were there, you know. _ To some people 10 years might not seem like such a big deal. I have many friends who are celebrating 13,15 or 17 years of marriage. For me, in my family, getting to 10 years of marriage (on the first try 😆) is an accomplishment in itself. _ I’ll never say it was easy, in fact it’s quite the opposite and it takes so much work, difficult conversations and a lot of figuring it out. _ Instagram has this funny way of making life look perfect, and while it’s not, those shareable moments are most definitely real and make all the not so shareable moments worth it. _ Happy Anniversary to my favorite red (now grey) head. You are my best friend, my partner in crime and my why. Thank you for loving all of me, closing every open cabinet door, and for letting me double dip. 10 years down and a lifetime to go. #laneygotzach

NYE. Stay in or go out? If you’re on team stay in then you gotta make this Easy Chicken Pot Pie 🥧. It’s so cozy and comforting and perfectly elegant but easy for a quiet date night in.

Dear Zoe, I always tell people if you look up the word joy in the dictionary, your name would be next to it. You are the pure definition of joy, love and happiness. You make the best of every situation, and always, ALWAYS see the silver lining. Thank you for giving me the greatest gift 7 years ago. Being your mom is the most rewarding (and challenging) thing I’ve ever done. Thank you for being my teacher, my guidance, my light. You are the sparkliest, most magical unicorn there ever was and I could not be more proud. Happy 7th birthday my sweet girl. 🥳 Love, Mama _ P.S. If you could hold off on the “how do babies get in the belly” for one more year that would be great 😆

OMG the last recipe of 2018 is live! Lasagna Soup for the win 🙌🏼. This bowl of comfort has been calling my name for months and I’m so excited to share this one pot creation with you. Make it for an easy weeknight meal, or for a cozy date night in (hello, New Years Eve 🎊). I hope you guys love it as much as I do, and holy balls (yeah I said it), we made it another year. I’ll wait another couple of days before I get all emotional on here and talk about how much I love you guys. 😭 In the meantime, go make this soup all weekend long. #lifeisbutadish _ Link in profile - http://www.lifeisbutadish.com/lasagna-soup/
