Phineas and Ferb Go Gluten Free

September 12, 2013

It’s not a cartoon the grand-kids watch while they are here and honestly, I don’t believe it is one that they watch at their own homes much either.  That’s not to say that they don’t watch cartoons, they do but Phineas and Ferb is not high on their viewing list.  Until a few weeks ago, […]

July 18, 2013

Don’t ask me how I came up with this cookie while walking my dog Max at 10:00 last night but the more I thought about them, the more I liked the idea.  I must have been excited to try them because this morning I woke at 4:30 but went back to bed until 7:30.  After […]
