Love for everyone in your life—girlfriends, boyfriends, friends, family,
Umm, you had to know this was coming. The minute I think about croissants, my mind floats to chocolate croissants next. I restrained myself and shared plain croissants with you first, but these babies? They’re here to make sure your New Year’s resolution didn’t include giving up things that taste delicious. Because that would be dumb. Life is short! Eat the things that make you smile (but
I just finished reading ‘French Women Don’t Get Fat.’ I know, I’m 6 years behind the times. I always read books WAY after they are popular.

Things are awkward around here. It’s the holidays. You want large desserts that feed your extended family. I just don’t do that sort of thing. The other day, I made a full-size batch of chocolate chip cookies. I spent the entire afternoon shoving cookie tray after cookie tray in and out of the oven. My entire day was gone.
