Becca's Fab Five Snacks.... and How Amazon Saves My Waistline!

We don’t snack a lot at our house. Generally speaking, we eat meals when we are hungry and then we don’t eat in between….as a general rule. But I love snacks. I especially love snacks when we are on car trips, when I am hiking, and when we are camping. Occasionally, I also find myself in a sticky situation where I really need to eat and a meal just isn’t an option. Enter the Snacks (complete with Superhero cape) to save the day!

Strawberry Shortcakes- Grain Free and Delish!

I LOVE A GOOD STRAWBERRY!!!

Strawberries are in season here in Central Florida and I am in heaven. I love taking the boys to pick them fresh, eating them right out of the field. I love seeing them with red juice dripping down their chins and strawberry mud on their fingers. And I REALLY love turning the strawberries into delicious, healthy eats! You will love these Strawberry Shortcakes. The shortcake portion can easily be amended into Blueberry Muffins or cinnamon muffins, too. The recipe makes 3 jumbo muffins or 6 regular muffins. I suggest doubling it! ;-) As an extra bonus, this can be made without a mixer and is easy enough for my four yr old to essentially do alone with just supervision.

Bone Broth Basics

Bone Broth is a big part of my cooking regimen. Over the years, I have made it many different ways- Crock Pot, Instapot, on the stove. All of these are good ways to do it…. the key is to just do it.
