Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

No Cook Date Balls!

I have always wanted to dabble with whole foods so when I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it.
It comes out of the soon to be released 

Gooseberry Patch has given me permission to post the recipes that I have tried in my reviewing the book. You will have a chance to win a copy before it ever hits the stands on my main blog. So keep an eye out for that.


1 cup dates
1/4 c. plus 1 TBS raisins
1/4 c. walnuts
1/4 c. almonds
1/8 c. cashews
7/8 tsp. cinnamon

Combine all ingredients together in a food processor. Process to desired consistency. If too dry, add a little water, one teaspoon at a time. Roll mixture into one inch balls. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until serving time. Makes 1-1 1/2 dozen.

I have to tell you that we ALL loved these.  My 17 year old, my 8 year old and my 5 year old. 
What a great way for them to get some fiber!
