Brrr…it’s a chilly morning in our neck of the woods! I woke up around 6am absolutely freezing, so I closed the window and pulled on the blanket that was at the end of the bed. I had another 45 minutes of cozy, warm sleep with Sketchie cuddled at my feet and Eric by my side. […]

Blueberry Almond Chia Squares

IMG_9188

Last weekend, I found myself at the Farmer’s Market ogling fresh blueberries. Before I left, Eric said, “Don’t bring back more than you can eat,” with a wink. This was surely a challenge.
