What a special day! My mom is in town, visiting me in NYC!
I am super excited to have her here in the Big Apple. We’re almost at the one year anniversary of her stroke, and what better way to celebrate her recovery than a mother/daughter weekend. — Well, a midweek-weekend. If that makes any sense…
Thanks for everyone that has done their Christmas shopping by stopping at my Amazon link first: amazon.com/shop/beautybeyondbones. It’s a free and super convenient way to support this blog.

OK TIME FOR SOME COOKIES!
I originally made these bad boys for my sister-in-law’s baby shower.
And well…that baby is now a darling 4 year old. But these cookies have stood the test of time. They were the hit of the party then, and they’re still a party stand-by now.
Yep! A Gluten Free, Vegan, Paleo, and Specific Carb Diet friendly cookie!
APPLE PIE BITES!
These crunchy little bites were sweet and spicy and utterly delightful!
Here’s what you need: (Makes 35 bites)
30 almonds, whole
30 almonds, halved
3/4 cup baked apple chips
Food Processor (This is the one I use and LOVE)
Put everything (minus the additional ingredients) into the food processor and process until it becomes like coarse sand.
Then, add in your additional 30 whole almonds and additional 3/4 cup apple chips. Pulse several times. (You want them to remain somewhat chunky for texture.)
Finally, stir in your additional 30 halved almonds.
Form balls out of 1 rounded tsp.
Chill for 30 minutes. Makes 35 bites.
Holy cow! What a delicious little cookie! Not only are they cute, but they are SO tasty! They taste just like apple pie! They’re spicy from the cinnamon, and have a fresh, sweet flavor from the apples!
And they’re crunchy and chewy, and I love them chilled! Simply incredible.
Bet’cha can’t eat just one 🙂
Alright, that’s all for tonight! My mom and I are off on an adventure in the city! I’ll fill you in tomorrow 🙂
OK, Really quickly, I wanted to just share with you about this whole “Like to Know it” thing you’ve seen me posting on Instagram. It’s actually really cool. You download and follow me in the app, and then whenever you see my photo with that LTKI watermark in the corner on IG, you screenshot it on your phone. Then when you log into the app, that screenshot will automatically show up! And then it will give you all my outfit details and where you can get them, AND send you an email with a list of all the links! It’s pretty cool if you ask me. Literally the future of shopping. Not that I have like, amazing fashion sense or anything haha…but it was pretty neat to get the chance to join!
Here’s an example of the watermark!
Alright, that’s it for me! Thanks for reading & have a great night! xoxo
