In fact, the two have been discussing adopting a tot at some point — something that has been on their minds for awhile.
"We think about it all the time and are really praying through that huge and monumental decision for our family," the 35-year-old exclusively tells OK! while talking about her partnership with Pacific Foods.
In the meantime, the brunette beauty is enjoying watching her three kiddos grow up.
"It’s really fun to see the innate relationships they each have with each other," she gushes. "Samuel is so playful with Mia and always just wants to make her laugh, Isaiah is a caretaker to her and seeing that she is drawn to him in times of comfort makes me excited for that to develop into adulthood. We want to create children who are best friends and so far so good!"
The mom-of-three adds that the best part about motherhood is "the unconditional love on both ends."
She continues, "It’s mind-boggling that you can love multiple people the amount that you do when you’re a mommy. Motherhood is a huge and lifelong responsibility and I don’t take that lightly. Knowing that how you choose to parent can affect these little people for their whole life is great and challenging. Getting to share traditions that I had growing up and making new ones is such a thread through generations!"
When Giudici isn't running around with her youngins, she's in the kitchen cooking an amazing recipe — just in time for the holiday season.
"It’s my favorite time of year to whip up some of my favorite meals for my family," she shares. "I’m excited for some quality family time! This is the perfect time to share some of my favorite traditions with my kids, such as being in the kitchen all together cooking, while also creating new holiday traditions. With the holiday season officially underway, I’ll be making a fun twist on one of my favorite holiday meals all season long with the help of Pacific Foods and their new Creamy Plant-Based Broths. My family can’t get enough of it, it’s perfect for cozy nights in and as a festive addition to our holiday menu. I love when we are all together around the dinner table, talking about our day over a delicious, home-cooked meal."
The Washington native recently partnered with Pacific Foods, which fit into her life perfectly.
"I love sharing my favorite recipes with my kids, while also introducing them to new flavors and dishes, which made this partnership an easy decision! Pacific Foods is known for quality organic soups and broths made with simple, delicious ingredients which I love especially when cooking for my family – we’re a big soup household!" she says.
For Giudici's delicious soup recipe, see below!
· 1 tablespoon cooking oil (such as vegetable or canola)
· 1 ½ to 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
· Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
· 1 large yellow onion, diced
· 4 garlic cloves, minced
· 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and minced
· 1 cup white rice (preferable Jasmine)
· 1 quart (4 cups) Pacific Foods Zesty Ginger and Turmeric Creamy Plant-Based Broth
· 2 cups Pacific Foods Low-Sodium Chicken Broth
· 1 tablespoon fish sauce
· Juice of 1 lime
· Optional garnish: sesame seeds, thinly sliced scallions, chopped hard boiled eggs
*To make this meal vegetarian, use a can of white beans (drained) instead of chicken and swap out Chicken Broth for Pacific Foods Organic Low Sodium Vegetable Broth.
1. Warm oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat.
2. Add the chicken in an even layer and season with 1 teaspoon kosher salt and 1 teaspoon black pepper. (Skip adding the chicken if you’re going vegetarian, you’ll add in the white beans later)
3. Let it sit for three minutes, then stir to flip it over, and let it sit for another 3 minutes. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, for 3 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger and continue cooking, stirring frequently, for an additional 3 minutes.
4. Stir in the rice, the entire quart of Pacific Foods Zesty Ginger and Turmeric Creamy Plant-Based Broth, and 2 cups of Pacific Foods Low-Sodium Chicken Broth (or vegetable broth).
5. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to a simmer over medium-low heat, add in the white beans (if you’re making the vegetarian version) and cover the pot for 30 minutes.
6. Stir in the fish sauce and lime juice. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
