These maple almond shortbread cookies would be a perfect “first” recipe for an older child to make all on their own – just think how proud they’d be!

Well, today is my birthday, and I am turning the big FOUR-OH! So, what better way to ring in another decade than with a super scrumptious homemade Chocolate Chip Bundt cake?
Gluten-free certainly is a buzzword these days, but there are sooo many gluten-free products out there that are made of processed junk. Not these cookies!
There’s nothing better than reinventing old favorites and that’s exactly what my 9-year-old and I did recently with our waffle maker! A waffle maker is a great first appliance for big kids to use, so this is a good way to get them excited about being creative in the kitchen.
Every December I get together with my closest group of mom-friends (which originally started as a playgroup over a decade ago!) for a holiday cookie exchange party. This year I took these Whole-Wheat Ginger Snaps.
These cookies would be great as an after-school snack, a throw-in for the lunchbox, or even doubled up for a different on-the-go breakfast. And by doubling up, I mean that you may want two. Why not?!
I’ve got a yummy little snack to have on hand while you’ve got guests in town (or will be traveling) this week … Maple Pecan Bars! These won’t last long.
Chocolate pudding used to be a regular thing for me as a kid and also for my kids before we cut out all highly processed food. This recipe for Homemade Chocolate Pudding only takes 5 minutes to make, and it’s a treat that’s definitely worth it!
My grandmother is known for both her Crepes and her “Apple Slices.” And I don’t just mean apples cut into slices. It is what she calls her version of apple pie, and maybe it’s because she has such a big family (soon to be 28 of us!).
Here is a quick and simple recipe for strawberry and coconut cream pops that take advantage of seasonal fresh berries and help you cool off all in one.
I think this might be a dangerous new recipe to have on hand because these whole-wheat madeleines are so good and so easy! We shared some with a good friend, and she couldn’t believe they’d been made with whole-wheat flour because they were so light and tasty.
