Soft Almond Butter Cookies 12

But it would have been arguably more accurate.     I’m starting to enter panic mode about school starting. […]

Boston Cream Cupcakes 21

Yep, all the goodness of Boston Cream Pie, in a cupcake!   Could it get any yummier or cuter?     No! It couldn’t get yummier. Or cuter for that matter.   I hemmed and hawed over what to make myself for my birthday this year. I really have not gotten to bake as much […]

monster monster cookie bars

Monster Monster Cookie Bars 9

That’s right, I used “Monster” in the title of these bars twice….   Trust me it’s necessary.     Inspired by the beloved monster cookie, these bars are not only packed with oats, peanut butter, chocolate chips, and M&M’s, but they are also monster sized (aka extra thick and huge).   You’ll thank me for […]
