  1. Yum!! I haven’t even made your original energy balls yet (something about morning sickness…ugh) but I’m thinking these will be a good place to start now that I’m back in the kitchen (sort of). Thanks for sharing!

  2. Monica, Just want to thank you for your wonderful and insightful posts about raising teenage boys. I have a 12 year old boy and while I love seeing all the amazing changes taking place and watching him transform into a young man, it’s becoming more and more challenging to keep the lines of communication open. Your blog really helps.

    Oh, and ditto on your sentiments with the weather, we’re experiencing the same thing here in south Florida. We had a little tease last weekend, the temp dropped to 69 one night and the humidity was greatly reduced for about 2 days, but now we’re right back where we were…still, I’ll take it over the cold dry north any day!!!!

    1. thank you Tracey! I’m so glad that my teenage boy posts have been helpful! Sounds like you’re headed into the teen years with intention, and that will pay off!
      Happy Fall in Florida…You’re right–we both have plenty to be thankful for! 🙂 Aloha

  3. I’m feeling your humid pain over here on the windward side. I’ve been under the vog for the past few days (bleh) and I’m ready for the trades to get back here right this minute!

    These look good! Thanks for sharing. I’m going to try to make these this afternoon. I need to create some fall around here even if I have to fake it a little! 🙂 Maybe these will chase away my grumpies today!

  4. Monica, these are right up my alley and I’m making them soon. But I’ve been meaning to tell you for weeks that I love reading your advice about raising boys. I have a 10-year-old boy (as of next week) and a 1-year-old boy (and a couple girls in between). My oldest is a really great kid and we are a Christ centered family, but I’m terrified of preteen and teen years and I really don’t want to blow it! Your willingness to share your experience is a gift to me and my husband 🙂
