Vandaag is mijn jongste dochter Zoe jarig. Ze wordt al 10, hip hip hoera!

Eggwhite oatmeal

I love sweet treats. I just don’t like the fact they pack a lot of sugar. So ever since I came across paleo-treats, I’ve switched my baking ingredients and I love the result of my paleo muffins, cakes and breads.

Sweet Potato Chips

On 5 februari 2013 By
