Are you a chewy or crunchy granola bar lover?  Well, if chewy is your jam then you will love these!  Conventional store-bought granola (energy) bars can be very unhealthy and it’s frustrating to me that most people think they’re making a healthy snack choice.  Do you want to know exactly what you’re fueling your body with?  Simple answer…make your […]

Cranberry Orange Bread

It’s November and that means cranberry season.  This recipe caught my eye because of the cranberry and orange combo…yummy!  A bit more time consuming than some, but worth it.  The recipe calls for fresh cranberries…I know, many of you will be wondering if frozen cranberries would work as well.  I say, this time of the year, […]
