For nearly 15 years, I've helped my audience of mostly moms and women 25-65 cook for their families and live a healthier lifestyle.

 The year after I started the blog, I founded a blog network in the health & wellness space called Village Green Network. I started the company on my coffee table and bootstrapped the business to over $1.3 million in annual revenue within 5 years. During that time, I helped a number of our bloggers become six figure earners.

Don't worry, there will be more recipes one day. After the war is over.

  1. I am wondering the same thing about rolling them out and also if it’s necessary to use the chopped almonds…my kids would prefer there to not be any crunchiness.

  2. Just made these last night. They tasted okay, but looked nothing like the photo. Is this the correct picture for the recipe? They are kind of like a shortbread cookie. I think the recipe would be improved by eggs and/or baking soda – both GAPS and Paleo friendly. They remind me of this recipe,, which is amazing. Also think almond extract would be a good addition. They sliced much better with a serrated knife instead of non-serrated.
