I’ve been experimenting, yo. I’m making snacks kids should love.  Yes, should.  Will they?  Do they?  Let’s find out.   It’s like a nesting instinct.  I don’t understand!  I have this desire, this pull, this NEED to make snack foods in bulk so that I don’t have to stress over it later.     We’ve been experimenting with a few ideas we’ve found on Pinterest, and the kids are taste testing.  They have given their thumbs up/down and I am going […]

Irish Soda Bread 2 comments
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I will be making my family some Irish Soda Bread.  I found the recipe from Sally’s Smorsel’s a year ago, and it was so good.

Pan Roasted Sunflower Seeds - so tasty! 1 comment
I’ve been eating a lot of nuts and seeds lately, and to keep it more healthy, I’ve been buying them raw.  I love a good raw almond in a salad, although I’m not yet in love with them by themselves.  The same goes for sunflower seeds.  The other day, I decided I wanted some roasted seeds, but of course, I didn’t want to buy any and get all that sodium and who knows what kind of preservatives in my body […]
