Make Ahead Banana Oatmeal Bars

We have an awesome guest post from Amy of Yummy Toddler Food, here to help bring some peace back to your mornings without sacrificing the healthfulness: Kid-Friendly Banana Bread Oatmeal Bars! My two year old is a total morning person. She’s usually up way before the sun and comes into my room to wake me up with a gentle tap and a “Mama, I’m awake.” At 5 am, I’m not always at my best, but I gather my energy, give her a good morning hug, and make myself a cup of tea. We read books, play tea party, and sometimes … Read more

winter essential oil recipes

You all know our love of essential oils, we’ve talked about them in depth here and shared our Summertime recipes here. We knew we wanted to share cold weather remedies because that is the time of year we seem to use them the very most. Germs run wild and we find ourselves congregating indoors where viruses are passed from friend to friend. To reiterate, we don’t condone using essential oils only, but in tandem with regular doctor visits. We’ve simply found that having an extra at-home remedy really empowers us as parents and of course, they really do work wonders. On Guard … Read more
