Grain-Free, Cookie Dough Energy Bites

Thumbnail image for Grain-Free, Cookie Dough Energy Bites November 27, 2012

These are probably my simplest energy bites yet.  And you would not believe how fast they were eaten.  They’re like cookie dough so I think you can assume how awesome these are. I realize I usually stay away from anything processed, but in this case we had some Halloween candy still hanging around that I […]

Honey-Ginger Cranberry Apple Crisp

I hope you’re looking forward to these wonderful bars!  I mentioned them in my pumpkin hot chocolate post because they were in the background.  Although I changed the recipe a little bit before sharing it with you, so they look a little different.  I wanted them a little more oaty, not to mention I wanted […]

I have big news!  OK, it’s not big to anyone else but me, but I have to share with someone…  I’m completely done my tomatoes!  I was just waiting for the last batch to ripen, and I think all but a couple that may still ripen are now ripe and being cooked down as I […]
