Irritated & inflamed mucous membranes of the respiratory & digestive systems is something I've been seeing a lot more lately. It reminds me of a blend I created a long time ago called Soothing Marshmallow which was prescribed for these kinds of ailments.

Sunday Cookies ~ the simplest cookies to make any which way you like.

Not only are these cookies quick and easy to make, you can pretty much use what you have on hand. This version is grain free but you can also use gluten free grains such as rolled oats or quinoa flakes. They are also sugar free though you can add any sweetener you like.
