Whole Wheat Strawberry Jam Bars

Whole Wheat Strawberry Jam Bars

I loved this treat for it’s simplicity. I feel like this is the type of the snack moms in the 1950’s would make for their kids when they got home from school. I made it because I bought a jar of strawberry jam from Costco that is the size of a small dog. 

Mixed Berry Streusel Muffins

Mixed Berry Streusel Muffins

I make the chocolate banana protein muffins , these peanut butter banana mini muffins, and even these big batch zucchini carrot “snack” muffins on a regular basis and keep them in the freezer to pack for the kids snacks.

Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

Oven-Baked Cheeseburger Sliders

Oven-Baked Cheeseburger Sliders

These sliders have been on my site since before I had Leo. Here’s an excerpt from the original introduction. “We don’t know what gender baby we are having for #2, and even though I have a sneaking suspicion it’s another girl, if I reflected on my current eating patterns, I might think boy. All...
