Strawberry Kombucha Pops

I don’t know what it’s like by you, but here in Bend, OR, it is HOT. It feels like it’s been near 100° for at least two weeks and since we don’t have AC, all I’ve been living on is smoothies and salads…and sitting in front of a fan…or in a cramped kiddie pool with…

Grain-Free Snickerdoodles

Crispy outer edges, buttery, pillow-y, soft + chewy center with the perfect amount of sweet and salty. I think these might be my new favorite chocolate-free cookie! Willow was skeptical at first because they were missing chocolate chips or a chocolate coating, but I convinced her to take a bite…she went back for a second…
