My kids love fruit leather, they call it fruit candy! Fruit leather is probably the closest you can get to a natural candy that still has some benefit to you thanks to the fiber and the vitamins.

Today is a yucky, rainy, go-nowhere sort of day. We have the fire on, and some kids movies playing on the telly.
My hands-down favorite dessert is a New York baked cheesecake. A good New York baked cheesecake.

Just pure, homemade chocolatey goodness. It is the sort of treat your Grandmother would make, before chocolate was so freely available but everyone had some cocoa in the cupboard.
I have lived gluten free for the best part of 10 years now. I have tried a LOT of chocolate brownie recipes. Most gluten free chocolate brownies are dry, chalky or crumbly. And quite frankly, gross. This, on the other hand, is chewy around the edges and soft and gooey in the middle. It is the perfect blend of goodness and awesome.

This easy recipe is a favourite in our household. My girls (8&6) LOVE caramel, so salted caramel cookies are, of course, often requested. These are crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle and oh so yummy. The girls can make them by themselves (with supervision), and my boy (2) loves to help.
At the end of summer you will be able to find a bumper amount of cheap ripe tomatoes or better yet – ones from your garden! Once you have plenty canned up, and some salsa made what do you need next? Tomato Ketchup of course!!
