Does anyone really have a healthy relationship with caffeine? That first cup of coffee is literally my sole reason for getting out of bed in the morning, but for the rest of the day, every coffee that follows, is just a sad attempt to chase that first blissful cup.
I am forever on the hunt for new ways to sneak vegetables into anything I can feed my fussy little eater. Obviously a safe bet would be something that resembles cake, right?
