September sees my family indulging in comfort food and the return of weekly baking. Our pear tree bears fruit at this time of year and homemade sweet and sticky pear and cinnamon crumbles fill the freezer.
The Little Blog of Vegan has always been a rich source of delicious recipes. I’m not vegan but I do appreciate a delicious recipe. These Oreo Cookie Butter Bars are a perfect after school snack for hungry little ones or a decadent dessert to serve at a dinner party. Enjoy!

This blog is a timely guide to making sure your kids have balance in their lives.
