Make Your Own Girl Scout Cookies

When my American friends talk about Girl Scout cookie it's like they are speaking a different language. Samoas? Tagalongs? What? I don't have easy access to Girl Scout cookies I turned to the internet to see if I could make any of them at home. Here's what I found. ...more

Paleo Food Friday #14

It's difficult to get posts done on a Friday! This past Friday, I woke up early to get in some cardio on the stationary bike before work.  After work, my co-workers and I went to Onion Creek to relax after another successful week.
