Dark Chocolate Almond Lacey Cookies


If you’ve never had a lace cookie {or Florentines} you’re in for a real treat.  They’re paper thin and light as air, melting in your mouth at first bite, possessing soft toffee-like flavors.  Its classic pairings are with citrus and chocolate, but you can certainly veer off a bit and include a variety of nuts, more

Did you know that there are hundreds of drinks at this coffee shop not listed on the menu?  It would take me forever and a day to go through each and every one but today, we’re going to start with one of their more popular secret items, the cotton candy frappuccino.  Fun and pink, more

No Eggs or Butter?


Your wallet + your veggie friends will love you! I don’t know about you, but in my house, I go through eggs and butter like water.  There’s nothing more satisfying than opening up a door to a fully stocked pantry, cupboard or fridge but on sadder days, I have [maybe] a 1/2 stick of more
