Even though I LOVE my job now and am so proud of how successful Keep It Sweet Desserts seems to be so far, I still look forward to the weekend. This week I crammed as much work as possible into Monday-Thursday so that I can spend three full days out of the kitchen and (for the most part) away from the computer. I seriously can not remember the last time I went for that long of a stretch. Even last weekend when I had some time to relax I still spent some of each day working and baking. Being a one-woman-shop has made me appreciate my free time on another level.
Weekend plans in Philly include dinners here and here but obviously the food I’m looking forward to most is ICE CREAM at Franklin Fountain. Although, this should be pretty fun for lunch tomorrow. Oh, you are wondering what activities we have planned. Nothing yet. We will probably spend the time in between meals walking off all those delicious calories. It’s all about balance, right?
Speaking of food, if you like cheesecake but don’t want to commit to a big slice, think about trying these cheesecake cookies posted on Fox today!
Have fun in Philly, I LOVE RTM. And these cookies are everything.
Love the idea of cheesecake cookies – enjoy your well deserved weekend off!
Enjoy your Philly visit. I’ve only been there a couple of times but hear they have a lot of great places to eat.
I am married to an absolute cheesecake lover who is married to an absolute cookie lover. These are PERFECT for my house!
ah these look fantastic! I’m so happy that you are off for a long, fun weekend…enjoy!
Have fun on your trip! And those cookies look amazing. People are really lucky if they have strawberries in season. We have to wait another two months. I think we have… potatoes in season. Woohoo!
I’ll save these for June. :)
Such pretty cookies.
These look amazing!! Enjoy your trip :D
Trips that revolve around food but also include lots of walking are the best (cough our expedition to BiRite+7 mile walk cough)! Have fun in Philly, love!
also. cheesecake cookies = pure love.
Cheesecake cookies are definitely up my alley. Have a great weekend!
