Coconut Cream Sugar Cookie Bars
This is the first story in the I Changed My Mind series, where I’m going to share stories of times I changed my mind about significant beliefs in order to model vulnerability and nuance, something I think is lacking in our public discourse right now. Hop back to the series introduction to read about what inspired this collection!

Cajun Catfish (low-carb, gluten-free, and delicious!)
I promise I will talk about important things again soon, but right now I want to take five minutes or so and just think about TRADER JOE’S and CAJUN CATFISH. Anyone up for five minutes of self-care with me?
Here’s the plan: let’s talk about our favorite things at Trader Joe’s because that’s always fun, and then I’ll give you an awesome recipe that has nothing to do with Trader Joe’s just ’cause it’s really tasty. Sound good? Good.
