Allergy Free Peppermint Brownie Bites

Hello my Gluten Free Jess family!!! I cannot even express to you my excitement as I begin to type this post! It has been too long since I have been able to sit down and share how  life is going with all of you. 2016 is flying by so fast. Thanksgiving came and went without you evening hearing a peep from me.

Lemon Blueberry Cinnamon Rolls with Lemon Cream Cheese Icing {Gluten Free}


It’s Saturday and it is going to be a gorgeous day in Minnesota. We have been having spring weather very early here…it’s supposed to be in the high 60s today! The warmer, sunny weather always gives me a new boost of energy. Oliver has been loving all of the walks outside because we are no longer the only ones out braving the cold. There are tons of people and dogs out walking for him to meet…and he is not shy about trying to meet ALL of them.
