Chocolate, Caramel and Pecan Cookies

Chocolate, Caramel and Pecan Cookies


It feels like I haven't baked in forever! And that I'm neglecting my blog in the process.

The reason for these cookies is...well.. I can't have four Tupperware containers of homemade caramels without wanting to bake with them.

Baking withdrawal sucks..

Or blog browsing withdrawal. I am almost too busy to sleep! My aim is 5 hours of sleep on weekdays and 6 hours on weekends, but you know how life is.. That's not going to happen.

Homemade Caramels

Homemade Caramels


For me, weekends mean making treats and eating waaay too much sugar. Tea is constantly being made with maybe a movie thrown in. Sweatpants optional.

Who's with me??

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

I love being busy again!

Okay, maybe it's a love-hate relationship. I love that I am teaching and doing what I love, but I also hate that I have less time to cook and bake...which I also love. Also looking through other food blogs. If only there were more hours in the day!

Broccoli Pasta Bake

Broccoli Pasta Bake


Yesterday was my first day at my new teaching job, and I love it!

Maybe this is just the thrill of doing something you love, or if it's the students who are surprisingly respectful and eager to learn.

But what they don't tell you is that you need to drink throughout the day. ... Water I mean! I was so dehydrated by the end of the day, I was getting a serious headache. But I am looking forward to the next week!

Chia Seed Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Chia Seed Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies


Do you know what is almost as fun as spending your entire day lesson planning? Taking out some cookies that your coworker made for you last week and realizing that they have gone bad.

After taking one huge bite.

Then spitting it all out onto the plate. At least I was alone at the time. They looked so good too!
