My super picky eater, Ethan, finally tried a GF Boulder Bar this week. I was nervous since he usually only eats my GF Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites or Papa's Choc Chip Bar. But, my husband encouraged me to go ahead. We opened the package and within 5 minutes, Ethan was asking for ANOTHER Boulder Bar. I had to ask him "honey, what did you say"? It turns out that he LOVES these now. So tonight I made up fresh Boulder Bars...except I substituted dried cherries for the cranberries, omitted the almonds (Nut Free) at school, and I didn't have any sunflower seeds at home. Instead of threw in some extra oats and they came out great.
Next week I have a meeting with Autism Speaks to discuss my ideas to create a Helping Hands Bakery Vocational Training Center. I'm so excited!! More to come!! Also, I'll be getting ready for my meeting with a Social Venture Fund group. Wish us luck!! It's my dream to provide people with autism and all types of abilities with job training and jobs where they can be as self reliant as possible! Everyone has gifts to give. Have a great night!

if you give this mommy a cookie...she'll give it to her kiddos and bake a bunch more! thank you for taking a minute to read this "Adventures in coo-kiedom" or maybe it should be called "how to live your dream of being an entrepreneur, while being a stay at home mom, raising three little boys with autism spectrum disorder, and bringing your family along for the ride". I'm so blessed to have wonderful sisters who help me run this awesome cookie business! I couldn't do this without their hard work, love, and encouragement. i'll be giving out advice on nutritional needs for people with wheat/gluten allergies, along with advice on parenting three young sons with autism. Take good care till next time!
