Can you tell us about yourself and your family?

I’m a 31-year-old mom of two and recently became a stay-at-home mom! I’m navigating life and trying to enjoy every moment with my kids. I’ve been married for three years, and we recently moved into a new home. We’re excited about this new adventure and living at a slower pace.

How did you become an easy meals expert?

I started as a working mom and wanted my first daughter to eat a variety of foods. Social media helped me connect with professionals like pediatricians, and I learned a lot about baby-led weaning. I even met a pediatric speech pathologist who designed for Easy Peasy, and she taught me many practical tips, such as how to position my child properly when she’s drinking milk.

This experience made me curious about other things that could make life easier for moms. I’ve always enjoyed cooking, influenced by my mom, who loves cooking too. I wanted to do the same for my kids. I found ways to incorporate cooking into a busy life by making schedules. For example, on taco night, I’d make a spicy version for us and a milder version for my daughter by taking her portion out before adding spices.

During the day, my mother-in-law would watch my daughter, and I didn’t want her to stress about meals, so I prepped everything in advance. I’d make things like egg waffles with different ingredients. Prepping on Sundays made meals easily accessible in the fridge, which helped both working and stay-at-home moms. Managing a household and taking care of kids is a full-time job, and meal prepping can make it easier!

With July 4th around the corner, how do you celebrate the holiday?

We’re moving into a house with a pool, so we’ll have a big BBQ and pool day, keeping it relaxed. Friends will come over, and we’ll prepare food in advance. My daughter loves fruit, and my son, who will be nine months old in July. We’ll have lots of watermelon and homemade popsicles using fun molds. We’ll end the day with fireworks and s’mores!!

What are three of your favorite foods to have at a July 4th celebration?

Anything American style! Hot dogs, burgers, and grilled chicken are always a hit.

We've noticed your knack for reinventing classic dishes with an easy twist. Can you share any unique recipe ideas for July 4th favorites? 

Yes! Check out the best summer meatballs!  Watch here!

Desserts are often a highlight of July 4th celebrations. Can you recommend some kid-friendly dessert ideas that are both delicious and easy to prepare for busy parents?

My kids aren’t big on sweets, which is surprising! They prefer my cooking over sweets. Easy options are cookies or granola. For July 4th, frozen yogurt barks are great – they’re simple to make, festive with red and blue berries, and perfect for a hot day.

What are your favorite products that Meems is selling?

Personalized dishware is definitely a favorite. Kids enjoy having something special that’s just for them. It’s practical and adds a fun element to meals, and gives kids a sense of ownership and makes mealtime fun. They love having their own plate and knowing it’s theirs. It’s also a great gift idea.
