Hope you guys like them! They are definitely easy!

Go niss (& family!)! I find I don't really mind passing when I come home and make myself something good and yummy.
I am loving popcorn lately -doing it on the stove top.

Non-Bloated = HAPPY!

Sara, I have been making a lot of the meals you make and have actually been losing weight! I have an inactive thyroid, so my metabolism is shot, and I have a very hard time losing weight. I have lost 35 pounds this year and my endocrinologist is amazed, but I have come to a standstill. I now have a trainer who is helping me build my muscles so that my resting metabolism increases. We'll see... I just wanted to say thank you for keeping your blog updated and for the recipes! It really helps.

Wendy,

THAT IS SO AWESOME!!! I'm sure increasing your muscle mass is going to help.

I will try to be really good at keeping new recipe's coming!

These look so good, Sar. I will have to try them. Is almond meal at the store?

Almond Meal:
I have looked for it, but haven't found it...I actually just grind up sliced almonds in a coffee grinder! Works like a charm!
