New Mom Real Talk Edition 6

New Mom Real Talk: A Day In The Life with a Four Month Old I’ve always enjoyed reading day-in-the-life posts so I figured I’d put one together for you. It ended up being pretty long and probably will bore you, but if you are interested, read on (or just skip the text for cute pictures […]

Comfort Food Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Perfect chocolate chunk cookies. Chewy in the center and crispy around the edges, these cookies are pure comfort. A good friend of mine recently brought her second baby home from the hospital. Even though I’m still getting a handle on some aspects of life with a baby, I realized it was time I started returning […]

Keep It Sweet Desserts Weekly Wrap-up 2/21/15

From the long holiday weekend, to starting L on oatmeal a few days ago, and then to celebrating my sister’s birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESSICA!!!), it’s actually been a pretty great week.

Thin Mint Cookie Cake

Thick and fudgy cookie cake loaded with Thin Mints and topped with Thin Mint Buttercream! I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, one of the reasons I’ve loved blogging so much (and probably why I’ve stuck with it for almost five years) is that I’ve made some great friends. Not only have I […]
