The Little Snack Newsletter & Gatherer TV

I’ve had the best time writing for you since January 2009. I could never have predicted the amazing journey The Naptime Chef has been. Between two cookbooks, one new baby, and three separate kitchens life has been a fun, frantic, mysterious whirlwind and now it has brought me here. The Naptime Chef will be continuing, so don’t panic, but I’ve been working on a couple pet projects for a long time and now I am excited to share them with the world.

Slow-Cooker Vegetable Barley Soup | The Naptime Chef

Easy Slow-Cooker Vegetable Barley Soup
