Halloween Candy Cookies


First, let me just say these candy cookies are life changing. Who else always has a ton of leftover Halloween candy? If I don’t buy too much candy to hand out, then my kids bring home ridiculous amounts of candy that haunts us for weeks and sometimes months. Dentists say it’s better to OD on candy over a few days rather than every…

Maple Oat Scones With Espresso Glaze


I love-loathe Sundays. I don’t like to make plans on Sunday and I secretly judge people that plan an event that requires me to leave the house on a Sunday. We can still be friend but if we’re to be really good friends, this has to cease. The only outing I’ll consider on a Sunday is one that involves equal parts…
