Healthy (and Gluten Free!) Blender Pancakes

Healthy (and Gluten Free!) Blender Pancakes

We had a snow day recently (it’s not as common as you’d think in upstate New York!) and we’ve sort of developed a tradition over the past two winters that every time we have a snow day, mama makes pancakes. I don’t know if the kids understand the connection or just think “Oh…no school? It [...]

Egg-Free Pumpkin Spice Bars

Smoothies are an almost daily snack in our house — I’ve been drinking them for years, but since Little Man has been about a year old, he’s had a fascination with the blender. When he sees me getting the ingredients together, or even when I say, “Do you want to make a … SMOOTHIE?!” he [...]
