    Cocoa Power Bars are so easy to make and so easy to power down,no baking . My dd, the apprentice chef decided to change out a recipe again to her liking. She used one of the recipes from “Easy Snacks to Go” from .

    That ice cream you shared looks yummy too. Leah is also trying to figure out how to make ice cream, first she’s trying to find out how to make her own ice cream machine…., gotta love the entrepreneurial spirit.

    Since you’re checking that people are linking back, are you also checking for content? I’m curious what your standards are. A couple of the links I looked at were definitely NOT real-food friendly — low fat, low-cal, white flour, etc. Not something I would ever make, no matter how frugal! Just wondering if that matters to you….
