It’s FRIDAY! We made it! You deserve a cookie. I know I do. This week has been straight up grueling. I am fairly positive I have 4 jobs right now. It’s only a season of transition so I’m trekking, but I’m excited for the day when I can streamline all of it into one.

Now, I never cook with butter. It’s not really intentional, it’s just that olive oil is the go to since it sits on the counter near the stove. These … Read more...
