I'm not sure what your winter has been like, but mine has been FULL ON winter. I don't mind it as long as I can get outside and stay active. And when that sun comes out, it makes all the difference. I've been diffusing nothing but citrus oils since Christmas. They're uplifting and they bring the sunshine in your home, even if the clouds outside are taking over. Pete gave me a box of Cordyceps Mushroom Elixir for Christmas and I've been using it to make this warm and chocolatey drink. An elixir is defined as a magical or medicinal potion and I would have to say that this recipe is just that. Actually, it's magical, medicinal, and delicious. My kind of healthy winter drink!

Fat Bombs are all the rage these days, especially now that we've realized that healthy fats are an essential part of a well-balanced diet. The point of a Fat Bomb is to keep the recipe nutritious and high in healthy fats, but low in sugar. A healthy sweet treat always sounds good to me.

This big kids have been back to school for just over a month now and we seem to be finding our new groove.  Parenting is frequently about finding a new balance, wouldn't you agree? Eva and I find ourselves baking more often now that it's just the two of us again. I've always loved baking with my babes. It's one of my favourite ways to spend time with them. Baking with kiddies makes for a much messier time in the kitchen, but it's so worth it. I'm currently teaching Liv to be a little more independent when it comes to baking. I'd love to see my kids bake on their own. That would make my heart burst. I developed these grain-free Chocolate Chip Cookies in the summer and they're a ...
