No-Bake Energy Bars

It's the weekend and I like to make a batch of my NO-BAKE ENERGY BARS. Due to certain nut allergies, I cannot eat packaged granola bars, energy bars, etc. Plus, I eat as clean as possible so I like to know what is in my food.

Spiced Moroccan Lentil Soup

I love soup. It’s delicious, filling, and pretty easy to make. And you always end up with so much soup that there is enough of it for a couple of days, or maybe for a couple of portions to put in the freezer for later. I like that because while I love to cook, I don’t love to cook every day. I like recipes that yield leftovers. And this soup is perfect for that because it gets more delicious on the second day after all the flavors have had a chance to meld together....more
