Healthy Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

It is hard to write about only healthy pumpkin oatmeal cookies when so much is going on inside me. I will be plain honest. So much of what I do in my day to day life is tied to darn cookies. Why?

I remember baking the cookies, everyone loving them and thinking to save the…

Grilled Cherry Tomatoes

Recipe # 2 of the Tabasco 10 Ingredient (4 ingredient and no oven for me) Challenge. Yesterday I posted Grilled Spicy Cilantro Fish Kebabs, which in fact, would pair really well with these grilled cherry tomatoes. I will be honest, I’m not the greatest recipe seller.
