My Favorite Recipe Yet

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

I’ve been working on a special recipe for the last 9 months. The last few days have been especially busy but it’s finally complete.

The special ingredients are as follows:

  • 4 lbs love
  • 15 oz of joy

Mix these ingredients and let them bake for 9 months and you will have the sweetest miracle.

Madison Grace
4 lbs 15 oz

Sorry if I have not been available this last week. I’ve been a little busy making a baby! I probably won’t be around for the next couple of days until I get adjusted but I promise to read all your comments and get back to you all as soon as I can. Much joy and love to all for this Holiday Season.

    Oh Gina, she's beautiful!

    If my tubes weren't tied, I think I would've kicked out an egg the
    second I saw her gorgeous eyes and that sweet baby fuzz along
    her jawline.

    Babies are the best recipes in life.
    Congratulations to you and your family.

  5. Hi Gina – I've been following your blog for about a year – great job on this best recipe! SHE IS TOO CUTE!!!!

    I just found your blog today and I absolutely love it. As an avid cook/baker, I love the recipes. As a new WW member, I love that they're low points. As a photographer, I LOVE your photos! So, basically, I love everything about your blog! Thank you so much for posting all these recipes. I just spend 10 minutes or more reading through pages and pages of recipes!

  26. Gina….she is GORGEOUS!!! What a wonderful Christmas gift! One of my favorite quotes: "Making the decision to have a child—it's momentous.

    Congratulations on your little girl. She looks beautiful.

    Thank you again for this website, it has been a life saver during this holiday season. The creams of asparragus, zucchini, cauliflower have been keeping me satisfied, warm and most important skinny enough to be wearing a size 2 skirt! Yeppeeey!!
