coconut macaroons

A peaceful rainy day and a sick kid calls for the only kind of productivity possible: quick and simple cooking, a camera in hand and the soundtrack to your springtime filling your space. These are the easiest thing you will ever make. And they are amazing! As usual, I use alternative sweeteners so they don't…

olive oil oat-cakes

Each time I jaunt over the pond I’m reminded of something awesome: Oat Cakes! Are they a cracker, a biscuit or are they a cookie? They're kind of everything. And they're a fabulous.

The discovery of toys and games and learning from each other begins and it seems that without actual dialogue there is this communication…

Sunrise bar: hemp, rice, oat, protein

I am constantly making variations of these. They can be an energy snack, a breakfast bar, a dessert, a protein-filled power-house morsel to get you through the day, whatever you need they can be. I change the sweetness and ingredients depending on how I feel. And honestly, depending what ingredients we have around! These were…
