Healthy Banana Oatmeal Baby Cookies

Ada is eating everything we put in front of her, except the mountain of baby cereal we have. So in an attempt to get her to eat it, I looked for some recipes to use it up and this has been a HUGE hit! I got the recipe from here and changed it a smidge. This is great because it doesn’t have any sugar in it, which makes me feel like it’s ok that she eats 2 whole cookies after dinner. : ) I also like them because they’re nice and...

Weekend Sweets: Frozen Berry Cobbler

This week I made a not-so-bad-for-you dessert that is akin to cobbler, but it’s frozen and whip-creamy, perfect for summer.

I had a couple issues with their tutorial, so mine has a couple...

Not too shabby! I want to thank everybody who reads my blog, you’re awesome!!! I know a lot of...

Climb, Climb, Climb!

All summer I’ve been meaning to help out a few of my climbing plant friends in the backyard but haven’t got around to it. I finally did it with the help of my trusty sidekicks: Brian and Ada! ┬áThe first set of climbers are my Japanese wisteria that I desperately want to climb up our pergola. I had to plant them a decent way from the posts however, so they haven’t been able to latch on yet. I bought some climbing nets at the...
