carrot cake energy balls

carrot cake energy balls

A healthy, kid friendly snack that is easy to grab on the go.  These carrot cake energy balls are filled with natural sweetness from the dates, lasting energy from the cashews and even a sneaky carrot vegetable!  Make a double batch, they do not last long! Friends, I am SO excited to share today’s recipe…

nutty cacao coconut energy balls

Over the weekend the kids and I had some fun in the kitchen making energy balls together.  They really don’t need any more energy.  For real (can I just tap into their energy source… maybe it’s the 12 hours of sleep a night they get…).  But we do like these balls for a sweet treat…

almond butter zucchini muffins

You guys, it is SO nice having my computer set up again.  With the move I went a good month without it, and posted maybe once or twice via my phone (which is a slow going process).  Sitting at my desk again and typing is such a treat now!  Especially with my canning post and…

It’s been an oddly hot summer here in Washington.  Although we have 90 degrees predicted for this weekend, fall is definitely in the air.  I can start to feel a change in season.   I want to do yard work again, yay!  While browsing through some pictures from a few months ago I came across our…

alternate post title: just a mom day with yummy food Yesterday we didn’t have much planned.  No places to go, people to see or things to do.  After breakfast Hunter, Norah (the 8 month old l I watch 3 days a week) and I walked to the park.  It was a little bit sunny, but…

Yesterday was a glorious day.  I had no plans, no teaching and no agenda.  Hunter’s been a little under the weather the past couple of days so it was nice to be able to be home to give him lots of opportunity to sleep.  I woke at 5am with the hubs (not normally when I…

peanut butter coconut no bake oat bars

Thank you everyone who chimmed in on yesterday’s pumping and milk supply talk!  All the great tips, advice and hearing how it went for other mamas was appreciated. One thing that’s surprised me since having a baby is the amount of TV I’ve been watching.  It’s crazy since I used to never watch TV on…

sweet n salty olive oil granola

Good morning! Sleeping in until 6:30am this morning was glorious.  Yup that sure is sleeping in for me.  🙂  No work for 5 more days!  My thoughts on twitter last night about that… I’m hoping Hunter knows how to listen to his mama.  I actually had a dream about what he looked like last night. …

nutella surprise balls

What happens when a hungry and pregnant Heather goes to Costco? She randomly stocks up on awesome finds… Love hemp seeds Tries a new Doctor Cracker Asiago Cheese cracker – it’s like a healthy cheese it! Finds her almond butter… Then magically puts a couple jars of nutella in the cart for her hubby. For…

my big green triple chocolate smoothie

Can you believe we’re back at another Monday… again?! Not me. This weekend FLEW by (I feel like I say that every weekend). The downstairs bathroom remodel is 95% done — this meant I got to shower in it again this morning! Pictures to come in a day or two. The weather was absolutely gorgeous…
