Honey Graham Crackers

Wow, life caught up with me and it’s been WAY too long since I have posted.  I have still been trying new, fun recipes, but just haven’t had a chance to post them.  I’ll try to catch you all up on my adventures as quickly as possible =)  The other day, I tried some whole wheat honey graham crackers.  The result???  YUM!  I had my family and several friends serve as my taste-testers and the response was unanimous….delicious!  I also made marshmallows so that we could take them with us to make s’mores to share with some great friends!  Here is the recipe I used from heavenlyhomemakers.com
