Confetti Shortbread Cookies

When was the last time you just let it all go and made a complete mess? If you are raising a child then that’s probably everyday. Right? Just the other day I made myself rummage though the entire house to put the clutter away. I couldn’t believe how many of my daughter’s darn hair bands […]

Toddler Breakfast Cookies

I love the idea of breakfast cookies, especially when you are on the go and can’t have a sit down breakfast. These are packed with protein, fiber, and come together so quickly!

DIY Wax Paper Goodie Bags

I may be a little crazy… Only I would think it’s easier to make my own baked goods bags from scratch than buy plastic baggies. But I have a No Plastic Bag Policy at home and we refuse to spend money on anything that’s so terrible for the environment. Forward to now. My son had a preschool […]

Almond Vanilla Cookies with Coconut Flour

So I’m sitting with a fellow shipmate of mine at the galley, discussing dining habits, when she informs me that she and her husband (who happen to be gluten-free) make coconut flour cookies.

Ask a Dietician: Junk Foodie

What to do when your baby eats poorly Tanya N: I have an almost three year-old who thinks its ok to live off of cookies and junk. I try not to feed him that stuff, but the only “real” foods he will eat are chicken, corn, and the odd banana. I give him vitamins, but […]
