I made these twice in 4 days. If that’s not proof of their convenience, simplicity, and delicious flavor, I’m not sure what is. You know those bananas that are the verge of death in your fruit bowl? Don’t you dare toss them – make breakfast cookies instead.

Once again, I’m behind on the trend. I’ve said this before, but I don’t really enjoy baking. It takes a lot of patience and if I’m being honest, I lack patience. It’s a virtue I’m working on but have yet to even come close to mastering.

Chocolate Coconut Almond Meal Cookies

Chris and I saw Billy Elliot on Broadway this weekend and loved it. I couldn’t believe what an amazingly talented dancer this little twelve year old was. Is everyone on Broadway this amazing? Perhaps I’m out of the Broadway loop.

It gave me a whole new outlook on dedication though. This kid has given up a “normal” childhood to follow his dream. What a sacrifice. It sure is paying off though, he was incredible. His dancing and singing were as … Read more...
