Super Easy & Healthy Kids’ Snack


I love finding new snack recipes for my kids. But the thing is – they have to be easy and I have to be 98% sure my kids are going to eat them. Because if I invest my time into making banana tortilla ‘sushi’ rolls, they sure as heck better […]

Healthy Zucchini Loaf


I know it’s not supposed to be, but sometimes – food is comfort. Sometimes, food is love. Food can bring back good memories and make us think of happy things. When my kitchen is warm and filled with scents of baking raisins, I’m immediately brought back to my childhood and the […]

Crispy Pita Chips


I’m admittedly more of a sweets than a savory gal. Which is why I tend to mostly bake muffins and loaves for the kids – whether they like it or not. (I’m sure they’d be just fine with me throwing a bag of cookies at them and calling it a […]

Black Bean Brownies


I’ve been hearing a lot about Black Bean Brownies lately, so I decided I needed to try them out on my little taste-testers. “I don’t like black beans!!” my 6-year old immediately protested. “I have a feeling you’re going to like these. They’re chocolate.” Music to her ears. I recruited […]

Rainy, glum days always seem to automatically produce irritable, bored kids in my house. And since I’m quite possibly the worst crafter on the face of the planet, my poor children were starting to go a little crazy today. By about 2pm, after games and books and quick trips to […]
