milk chocolate cadbury mini egg cookies

I am so excited to share these Cadbury mini egg cookies today! I recently learned that Cadbury mini eggs are not as revered by everyone as I think they should be. Some people (cough, Will) think they are gross and merely nostalgic, and when I brought them up in another crowd people thought I was…

healthy tomato soup

Can we talk about this weather? It is the oddest. Over the weekend the sun was out, the temperature was perfect, and we were walking around in short-sleeves. Tomorrow there is a wintery mix in the forecast. What is this craziness? Some of my northern friends may joke about this, but having lived in North…

march goals

paris, part I

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that at the very beginning of the year my family took a trip to Paris! We left the U.S. on New Year’s Eve (our flight attendants wore party hats and crowns and blew party horns at midnight over the Atlantic!) and spent the first week of the…

dark chocolate chunk espresso shortbread

In the past few weeks, it seems like everyone on the Internet has been making Alison Roman’s salted butter and dark chocolate chunk shortbread cookies. Cookies are my favorite baked good to make because of their versatility – there is always a twist, an addition, a substitution, or a tweak that can create an entirely…

link love

Hi, friends! Happy weekend! It has been a while since we have done link love over here. Link love posts have always been a fun addition, but were never my favorite posts to put together. Toward the end of last year, trying to find links each week got to be a drag and was causing…
