Easter Carrots Chocolate Covered Strawberries Recipe by Handmade Charlotte

When Everett was a little guy there were some days that all I could get him to eat was fruit and milk.  The kid LOVED fruit of all types, there wasn’t a kind that he didn’t like!  I have a fond memory of Peter and Everett coming back from the farmers market in town and Everett was carrying a pint of raspberries, just over flowing…He was in heaven, just shoveling them down!

My little man has since branched out from the fruit and dairy world into more exciting (and healthier!) items.  For easter instead of getting him a whole basket full of corn syrup laden candy and trans fats, I may just make him some Chocolate covered strawberries! check out this recipe and enjoy!

Golden Marbled Easter Eggs

This DIY how to on golden leaf easter eggs by she knows is amazing, totally gorgeous.

Easter is one of my most favorite holidays (it’s hard to choose just one, lol) everything is renewed, fresh and bright.  The weather is getting warmer and the grass is greener, things are coming back to life.  So it’s fitting that easter is the celebration of Jesus rising from the grave. He surely lives, redeeming and restoring!

Happy Snow Day from ever+mi.crush!

Some of you might want to smack me for saying this, but I LOVE snow…I always have. And it doesn’t bother me to drive in a snow storm really…to me, a snow storm just means- drive more slowly and you get to enjoy the beauty a little longer, really soak it up!

Peter is working from home today, the kids are playing outside, making snow men, and I’m baking cookies.  Just a lovely day at home. To make it even better, Here’s a code for FREE SHIPPING, today only at ever+mi.crush!

We are having a big sale on all Darling UK, TULLE, & Outerwear right now…So pour a cup of joe, have a warm cookie out of the oven and do a little shopping in the comfort of your home!

No Bake Coconut Oil & Flaxseed cookies

DSC_0251:: Recipe via Dotting the Map ::

I’m always looking for ways to get more ground flaxseed into my diet, and these cookies are just the way! They are super easy to make as well, a no fuss recipe. I made them with my five year old yesterday and I have to admit, they are mostly gone  (some serious gym time is in order now!) One change I made – I added about half of the amount of sugar the recipe called for (so one cup instead of two) and that was plenty. Enjoy!

Coconut Oil and Flaxseed No Bake Cookie Recipe:

1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
3 tb cocoa
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth whatever you prefer)
3 heaped cups of oatmeal
1/4 cup more or less ground flaxseed

Combine oil, sugar, milk and cocoa in large saucepan. Bring to full boil on medium heat. Add peanut butter, flaxseed, oatmeal and vanilla. Mix thoroughly and quickly. Spoon drop out on wax paper. Let cool and set. Devour.
