Treats from Reese’s and cookies that remind of them

Late last week I received a ginormous package from Reese’s. The box looked like a giant pack of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, which I thought was a cute idea. I was imagining that a load of Reese’s goodies would spill out once I opened the box, but actually there is an assortment of things inside. …

Homemade cookies are one of the best pick-me-ups

Looking back and tapping into my Christmas Spirit

Can you believe it’s the last day of November already? I certainly can’t. This was probably the fastest year yet for me, and I don’t even feel like I accomplished anything particularly special this year.

There’s sunshine and glitter in snicker doodles

The first time I ever heard of snicker doodles, I thought, what a cute name!
