everyday as valentines day

March 8, 2013

Valentines day is not usually a big deal in our house, it’s usually acknowledged, but doesn’t usually find us as excited participants. This year was no different, really. I made it home early, well, before 7pm. I decided I would shower, relax, and order in some dinner as a gift of no dishes for myself. It was […]

In a manner of speaking. […]

Would a peanut butter cookie get better with peanut butter chips tossed in? I had to know. I also had a burning desire not to have a bag of reeses chips kicking around for too long, because I might’ve started eating them straight out of the bag… I didn’t change all that much from the recipe that I […]

not as good as nana’s brownies

What do I know about a good brownie? A better question might be, what the hell am I doing making brownies if I don’t like chocolate, but let’s not go there right now. I’m going to give them away tomorrow, or most of them anyways. One was more than enough for me, since now I’ll […]
