What's Shoppin'?

Doing Christmas shopping online this year?  If you will be using Amazon, I would be very grateful if you would go to their home page through my link.  Thanks so much!  Just click below.

What's Cookin'?

**This is so, so cool!  DIY beeswax cotton food wraps:

**Here is the source given for beeswax.  I see that they have 100% beeswax candles, which I have wanted to have in the house for quite some time:

Simple, simple homemade fruit rollups! [Update:  We made these with some apple sauce that we had recently made and they were delicious (although I over-dried them and ended up breaking them into small bite-sized pieces.]

Dairy-free/grain-free peanut butter cookies (1 C peanut butter, egg, sugar, baking powder):

Cranberry sauce (use sweetener of your choice):

Pumpkin brownie tarts.  I would un-veganize it with milk but otherwise mostly use it as-is:

This has a crust that would be good for any unbaked pie (like homemade chocolate pudding!) (3/4 C almonds; 1/4 C dates):

This pumpkin pie filling is no-bake:

Caramel sauce (I was looking for a recipe for caramel squares to make popcorn balls and caramel apples - this may be too saucy for that but it looks great for other things):

**Caramel squares.  I think this thicker recipe will be better for popcorn balls and caramel apples [update:  worked GREAT - 1/2 recipe was enough for a huge pot of popcorn]:

Baked Pumpkin Doughnuts!  I don't have a doughnut baking sheet but they can be made as muffins:

Baked cheesy chicken strips:

Brownie dessert shooters - these are too cute in the tiny cups.

Soaked pumpkin pie oatmeal.  I think this would be a good dehydrated cold cereal also.  They really liked it when I mixed baked oatmeal muffins with some crumbled (healthy) pumpkin cookies and dehydrated them for breakfast cereal...

Chocolate coconut butter bites:

Chocolate nut clusters.  This would make a great gift... hint, hint!

Peanut butter banana leather:

Sweet potato sloppy joes:

Raw nutty truffles:

Homemade hot cocoa mix (handier to have ready than how I usually make it):

Another take on hot cocoa:  Peppermint Hot Cocoa with steamed almond milk.

Chewy grain-free nut butter breakfast cookie (with pumpkin!)

Coconut berries delight (uses frozen berries):

Chocolate almond bark:

How to make sprouted flour!  Yeah.  I want to try this so I was happy to see this tutorial:
