soft brown butter sugar cookies

Cookies are my favorite dessert to make. There are so many flavor possibilities, textures, and types of cookies, and, unlike with cakes, pies, and bars, you can bake only a few servings at a time or the whole batch. While pumpkin pie or peach cobbler are very seasonal, cookies cross all seasons and are always…

guide to coffee shops in the triangle

Coffee shops are my happy place. I love the atmosphere, the creativity, and, of course, the drinks and treats. Will and I go on coffee shop dates more often than evening dates, and always aim to support our local coffee shops when we aren’t brewing our own caffeinated drinks at home. There are so many…

chocolate chip cookie tournament

Remember back in March when I planned on doing chocolate chip cookie March Madness? Well, it’s now June and I’m just getting around to posting it, so rather than March Madness it’s more of a chocolate chip cookie tournament. Whoops. Despite the wait, I’m happy to say that there were some great contenders, and between…

may goals

Yes, we are very near the end of May and I’m just getting around to posting my May goals. I’m sure this is the latest I’ve ever posted goals. Part of that is because May has been hectic and wildy busy, and part of that is because I have been trying to create a goals…

60 before 30 update

Last week I celebrated my 27th birthday. It was a beautiful day and we took full advantage, walking up and down our small town streets, building and recounting memories from our years here. Since my 60 before 30 list ends on my birthday in a few years, I thought it would be fun to do…
