Okay, so this isn't exactly revolutionary, but I thought since it has become a family favorite, it was worth mentioning. This is a quick and easy treat that I like to put together when I'm short on time and need something sweet to eat. Basically, you add slices of fruit inside a s'more and voila ... you've got fruit s'mores. Just pop them in the microwave for a few seconds and you're done.

Here's another peanut-free treat for my peanut-free son. I took Paula Deen's recipe for Georgia Cookie Candy and replaced the peanut butter with sunflower seed butter. On a previous post, I mentioned how delighted I was when I discovered SunButter at my local grocery store. I recently found it at my neighborhood Target store as well. This is truly a perfect alternative to peanut butter and unlike other products I've used, Sunbutter is made in a peanut-free facility. If you don't have any nut allergies, you might want to experiment and try this recipe with almond butter or cashew butter (Clotilde from Chocolate and Zucchini has a quick and easy recipe for cashew butter that's worth trying).

I'm thrilled to announce that my husband and I are expecting our second child this summer. It's been a long, emotional road leading to this point and I can't even begin to express how grateful and blessed I am to be carrying this baby. I had a difficult pregnancy the first time around, so I'm gonna be smart and take it easy this time. Which means I'm not gonna be baking as much as I'd like.
