What an amazing Week End this has been with amazing people and amazing healthy food and sports…
Any holiday for me is an added excuse to cook healthy snacks and get creative with the decoration!
I started off the festivities with some fun bunny cookies. Gluten free, lactose free and egg free…. I was a little nervous as my peeps are not used to these kind of treats but within a day they were all gone and they seemed to be asking for more…
See link to recipe below….
Decoration is a total must during any holiday! the house comes alive and it sets the tone for a good celebration.
I did not have time to decorate the whole house so opted for details surrounding our Sunday feast.
