I only decided to post this recipe after discovering that all three of my kids, two of whom normally spit out "fruit chunks" in their cookies, devoured them. (Consequently, I took no pictures while making them.) I made them on Saturday to replace the store-bought granola bars we've been relying a little too much on … Continue reading Granola Bar Cookies
Looking to do the Whole30 on a grocery budget? Don't. OK, we're at Day 25 here, and I am chomping at the bit to be done. Most of my family members, in fact, seemed surprised to learn recently that I wasn't already done.

But unlike a child, the Starter doesn't sit at the top of the stairs screaming at you because you let Daddy tuck it in … Continue reading Sourdough English Muffins
Raise your hand if you too have a child (or were a child) subsisting on the all-carb diet. No, not good carbs like fruits and vegetables. We're talking white bread and ketchup, people. Who's with me? My Boo Boo (who apparently is too big to be called Boo Boo, his father informs me) is not … Continue reading “No Veggie!” Tales
