This was my kitchen at 4pm today after making coconut snow cookies, more carrot bites (because I ate all the ones I’d made for Christmas Day), and leftover turkey and yak stew. If you look far off in the distance you can see the kitchen table where Kevin was laying out our Christmas decorations and blondies in a jar. Eak!
I keep reminding myself that I just have to get through the next 1.5 weeks and before I know it we’ll be on our way to Golden for a vacation. All this running around will be over very, very soon. From the grunts that are coming from Kevin right now, (he grunts when he’s tired) I know he’d agree with me.
As promised, here’s the latest creation from my kitchen using Artisana nut butters. I played around with coconut butter and was thoroughly impressed with the outcome and so were my sister and Kevin who ended up eating at least 4 cookies each. I’m just as guilty though. So no fingers are being pointed.
Also – I noticed that my recipes weren’t showing up correctly on some RSS readers so I’ve changed the layout to improve the display for everyone. Hope it works well!

Creamy and just the right amount of sweetness. These cookies are packed with fiber and loaded with nutrients to strengthen your immune system, improve digestion, and nourish your skin.
