First off, this isn’t my recipe. But it was dang good!
My go-to cookie recipe has been walnut based, but I think I’m slightly allergic to consuming that many walnuts, so this is a great alternative. And I like the flavor better anyway. I think the kids still like the walnut oatmeal chocolate chip cookies better, but I’m 100% sold on these. Continue Reading
Today my son had a tennis lesson. Give it up to the city’s summer rec programs! Seriously, we’ve been having a blast with tennis and soccer. Up next will be swimming. I only wish they offered more art classes for kids.
But speaking of tennis, did anyone watch Wimbledon? We watched the championship match for the men and it was awesome. Those guys were putting their souls into that game and England won! This was the first win for them since 1934! Huge deal people. I love tennis and played it through high school. I’m excited that my kids want to learn and love that there’s a park super close to our house that has tennis courts. Continue Reading

It’s summer. Officially. I have my air conditioner running and I can’t keep the kids out of water. We’re onto the 3rd outfit for the day for some of them! Really, I just need to invest in some more swim suits.
So with this heat, you need something simple, fast, and tasty for a weeknight meal. Welcome taco triangles with tofu. And if you’re not a tofu fan, then you could leave that out. This might be the most versatile recipe you ever encounter. Continue Reading
Crunchy on the outside, creamy inside, spread with sweet homemade whipped topping, and topped with berries and possibly even dark chocolate chips. This is definitely not a dessert for a clean-diet strict vegan. So I guess we’re not always strict. Continue Reading
