Welcome back for the third and final post of the Christmas Time Stories and Sweets series I am writing with Jess from The Owl’s Skull. Last week, I talked about my Spiced Molasses Sunflower Seed Cookies and the week before it was my Banana Chia Chip Cookie Dough/Cookie recipe. Jess has been chatting about her favorite holiday books. Don’t forget to enter to win some awesome giveaways. Enter to win at the bottom of this post!

This week, I am baking my favorite holiday cookie, Snickerdoodles.


However, I switched up the original recipe a ton and used only real food ingredients. No white sugar here – Sucanat and raw honey. Finding ways to limit your white sugar intake this time of year is huge on your health!

These cookies can also be an easy breakfast option. They are healthy enough!

Be sure to check out Jess’s post, where she is talking about another adorable holiday book, The Night Before Christmas.

4 easy ways to health-ify lasagna.

by Betsy on December 15, 2014

Lasagna is a quick, easy and affordable dinner option for busy families. I really try to minimize the dairy and wheat intake for our family. However, we are not perfect. Heck, I am Italian so sometimes I just gotta have lasagna!

I have, meanwhile, learned how to “health-ify” lasagna in 4 easy ways:

1. Add greens and lots of them. If I chop up spinach and kale and add it to the ricotta cheese mixture, my kids could care less and eat it all up. So, I add a ton of it. I am talking like an entire package of greens. copy 7

2. Substitute wheat noodles with brown rice noodles. I buy these brown rice lasagna noodles and love them. I add to the lasagna uncooked. Just add some extra sauce and let those noodles cook to perfection. copy 6

3. Buy organic dairy. Dairy products are one food category I splurge and buy organic when I can.

4. Add additional veggies like carrots, zucchini, garlic and onion. My kids will eat pretty much anything covered in sauce and cheese. I work with this fact and pack in as many veggies as I can.

An easy Christmas craft that will keep their attention for more than 5 minutes.

December 11, 2014

I am not that type of mom that has an official craft ready to go every day. Far from it. I am a big fan of kids getting creative with some construction paper, kid scissors, a few markers and a glue stick. I like to let them take the lead. Maybe that is laziness on […]

Why I’m not sending Christmas cards this year.

December 5, 2014

Every year since Madilyn was born, Brian and I have sent out Christmas cards to 100+ households where our closest and dearest friends and family live. Every year I look at my list and decide what new friends “make the cut.” I ask Brian, “Should I send one to that new girl that works at […]

Thankful is defined as “feeling or expressing gratitude; appreciative.” We live in a busy and chaotic world where it can be difficult to notice how good we have it. The news is constantly filled with negativity. It is easy to dwell on all the things that are driving us crazy. As I sip on my […]
