Often times, with the birth of babies, also comes the birth of new versions of ourselves. Sometimes we find new passions, new values, and new ideas. And sometimes what we find is the courage to bet on the dreams we already had.

This Cobb Salad Board from Maegan, the talented mom behind The BakerMama, is a great way to introduce kids to veggies they might not normally try.
