Yesterday was my last day at work.  I can’t believe it is actually over. I’ve been waiting and counting down for a couple of months now (longer than that really, but that was when I made my decision to quit), but now that it’s over I feel odd. I had my struggles with work for […]

Double your pleasure, double your fun… ruin your New Year’s Resolution?

Why just have brownies when you could brownies with chocolate chip cookie dough? I spotted these at Bakerella this morning. Evil. Evil I say!But you know I will be making these sometime soon. I have been thinking about “Superbowl” foods and got stuck on the dessert: cookies or brownies? With these I don’t have to […]
