No-Bake Lactation Bites…Need Not Be Lactating to Try

No-Bake Lactation Bites…Need Not Be Lactating to Try

I’m serious folks. These things are the bees knees…pooh’s honey in his honey pot. Absolutely delicious and absolutely for everyone. You could be a 26 year-old with a power driven work week, a 65 year old retiree who likes going on long runs or a frazzled dazzled mum like myself. No milk ducts are required.

Radish Chips

Exhibit A: The Everything Bagel. A splendid little entity that contains a plethora of pleasantly palatable seasonings sprinkled atop doughy decadent bliss.

Spiced Poppy Seed Apple Chips

Apple chips. Snore. It seems like everyone has done them. Slice and dry. Been there done that. And if you have read any of my other posts the usual really isn't quite good enough for me.
