Honey Maple Chocolate Granola

Listen y’all… I have a confession to make. I’ve never made homemade granola before. I feel like that is a good blogger sin. I mean, granola is SO EASY to make at home. And I truly do love it as a quick snack or even breakfast cereal replacement. But I’ve always just picked up a […]

Low-Sugar Chocolate Egg Yolk Cookies

When you use as many eggs as we do, quality matters. Eggs are one of my “splurge” items at the grocery store, with  free-range options being my top pick. They just taste so much better! Have you ever tried free-range eggs? The yolks are typically a darker yellow color, and the whites as not as […]
