Jam Drops {Healthy style}

 If you’re a health nut, then in all your getting, get this recipe.  If you’re not a health nut, you still need to get this recipe.  These little bikkies are delicious.  I’ve tried enough healthy recipes to know that healthy does not automatically mean tasty.  In fact, in my experience it’s been quite the opposite.

In season

I love strawberry season.  There’s nothing more delicious than biting into a juicy, sweet strawberry.  And they are such pretty looking plants too, with their sweet little flowers and dangling runners.  So it was inevitable that I would fall in love with the inedible handmade kind after seeing them quite some time ago on some […]
