Oatmeal Jam Bars |

It never fails, three o’clock rolls around my kids are suddenly in dire need of a snack. (I am too, if I’m being honest.) It’s like they haven’t eaten anything all day and I better hurry up and get those bellies something to eat before the crankiness takes over.

For this afternoon snack we usually enjoy a sweet treat, often whatever I happened to have baked that day or earlier in the week. And these oatmeal jam bars are by far my favorite afternoon treat yet! They’re a treat for sure, but they’re also hearty and satisfying. >>

Apple Cider Old Fashioned Cocktail |

Cheers to the weekend!

Am I right??

It’s Friday and all I can do is look ahead to when the kids go to bed and I get to pour myself a big girl drink. It’s my favorite moment of the whole week. (Parents of little ones, please tell me I’m not alone!)

Right now I’m aaaall about apple-y drinks. I’m drinking plenty of hard cider, spiced apple sangria, and you got it, these apple cider old fashioneds. They’re going to keep me cozy even long after the first snowfall. >> MORE
