Hi! I'm Jules, and I write about life, sweet and savory, at Pancakes and French Fries
. Like life, Pancakes and French Fries has a little bit of everything. I write about marriage and motherhood
. I write about my home
, and how I'm trying to purge anything I don't know to be useful or believe to be beautiful. I write about books
and host a monthly book club
full of readers as obsessed with reading as I am. Finally, I write about my struggle with food
, and tangentially related to that, share recipes. Speaking of food and recipes
, that's what I'm doing here today. We're going to talk snacks.
After school snacks, if we are going to get specific.
You should know upfront that I don't cut sandwiches into pirate ships and give them cheddar cheese sails. I don't give food eyeballs and not once have I turned a floret of broccoli into a tree. I might do that on special occasions, but not on a Tuesday 20 minutes before we have to leave for soccer practice. I give my boys snacks that are healthy, no-cook, and easy to make. I give them something I would want to eat, because parents and care-providers need snacks, too.
Here are our favorites.
