Pin It!

Gooey Chocolate-Chip Bars (for a good cause!)

Pin It!

Note to self: Don’t ask for suggestions. You’ll get way too many good ones, and thus it will be even harder to make a decision. Finally, at about 6 o’clock Friday night, I had to choose something… After a lot of wavering, I finally made my Chocolate Chip Blondies with beans. When I bring those […]

Vanilla Chai Breakfast Shakes

Pin It!

Thick, creamy vanilla chai breakfast shakes… Have you ever tried chai tea?

Guess what… You probably already have all the ingredients to make this: So there’s no excuse not to make it.

Better yet, tell him/her you’re going home […]

The cutest post ever?
