When people ask me what do for a living, I usually say, “I’m a fashion writer and blogger”. More often than not, this is followed up with, “oh, you are a mom blogger?” The thing is, being a mom isn’t what defines me or my dress sense. I’m an entrepreneur and fashion blogger, and I happen to be a mom. To me being fashionable doesn’t stop being an option when you have kids. If you had a sense of style before, it’s still there, just a little dormant now.
Do your kids love fruit roll ups, but you don’t love that store bought ones are mostly just sugar?! Our Homemade Fruit Roll-ups are a fantastic snack and a great activity to make with the kids. Better yet? When you make them yourself you save money and know exactly what ingredients are going into the kids’ lunches.
Homemade fruit roll-ups recipe
2 cups organic strawberries (or other fruit)
¼ tsp cinnamon
- Blend the fruit until smooth, then spread onto a Teflex sheet or a parchment-lined baking sheet.
- If using a dehydrator, dehydrate at 105 degrees F for 8-10 hours or until the fruit is pliable and easy to peel from the sheet.
- If using an oven, leave it on at the lowest temperature until the fruit is dry (times will vary depending on the oven).
- Cut into strips and store in a glass container in the refrigerator.
From My Edible Advice
I was in Buenos Aires recently and couldn’t keep away from the Recoleta Cemetery. (And not to see the hoards of people looking at Evita’s grave.) The sense of peace and solitude I felt was overwhelming. The elaborate tombs are above ground and house every member of established Argentinian families. It is their legacy.
