I don't know a woman who doesn't love chocolate. For me, it's totally one of those foods that I wish was calorie-free, fat-free and so good for me that I could sit on my couch eating an entire bar without it immediately going to my hips. Sorry guys, you might not be able to relate, but gals, you know what I'm talking about, right? Right...? Please tell me I'm not alone in this. So when I create a … [Read more...]

Pizzelle cookies are my absolute favorite kind Christmas cookie. They remind me of Sunday morning waffles, but in cookie form. They're thin and crispy, and I think it would be entirely possible for me to sit down and eat an entire batch. They're one of those things that you don't realize how many you've eaten until they're all gone. They're that good. For some reason, I thought Pizzelles were … [Read more...]
