Three cookie recipes in a row?! I know, I know. But the heart wants what it wants, doesn’t it?

First and foremost, Happy New Year, y’all! The arrival of the New Year just makes me feel older.  Even though I’m only 27, I’m finding myself in complete shock at how quickly time passes.  I can’t believe my 10-year high school reunion invitations are being addressed as we speak.  Don’t get me wrong though:  I [ Click to continue Reading! ]
