Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I admit to being that mom who doesn’t make cookies often. They turn our flat, melt all over the pan into one huge cookie, and my perfect cookie dreams melt along with the cookies.

Pumpkin Raisin Breakfast Cookies

When my kids found out that they were getting cookies for breakfast, they were confused. Had they waken up late? Is this a snack? Can I get my breakfast AND a snack? Has mommy gone mad? A little mad…I have a LOT of pumpkin to use so my madness has turned into their reward. These [...]
