  • Healthy Carrot-Zucchini Muffins

    I recently started volunteering with Cooking Matters. This is a program growing across the country to provide food and health education. I’m part of a 6-week class for parents of pre-schoolers. Each week the class goes over a new topic, like how to read nutrition labels, explaining different types of fats, whole grains, etc., and […]

  • On the Go Oat Breakfast Bars
