These homemade Paleo Skittles are slightly chewy snacks made with tons of whole fruits and vegetables. A great healthy snack for toddlers on the go.

We were all nearly in tears when this was gone. Figuratively. But our mouths were sad. This blueberry coffee cake is ridiculous delicious y’all. Make it. Do it.

Chicken pot pie is one of those foods I’ve always loved. It’s warm and creamy, there’s just the right amount of chicken, lots of vegetables, and a perfect crust to include a bit of in every bite, like a biscuity condiment.
