Healthy Cookie Bites

It is no secret that I looooove me some cookies. In fact, Eric calls me the vegan cookie monster. Almost every night after dinner I take a couple cookies out of the freezer while Eric boils some water in the kettle. We enjoy a cookie with our piping hot tea and we catch up. This […]

Dark Chocolate Cherry Energy Bites & A Book Review
