A New Look – thanks Anchored Design!


  Earlier this year I decided to take back my mojo and dive back into blogging.  After taking some time off I missed the community I found through this blog.  I missed helping people improve their lives by improving their diet.  And the creative outlet I have through blogging was sorely missing from my life.

You know we’re all about the healthy snacks over here.  Granola bars are one of our favorites for snacking any time of day.  I think most parents feel the same way because my original granola bar recipe has been one of my most read articles since I posted it four years ago.  Those granola bars will always be a family favorite, but over the years
