The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

by Chrissy

Bold claim, I know. But these cookies are the business.

Best Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies_LYK6

From a young age I loved baking chocolate chip cookies. If I’m being honest, it was probably more of an obsession…but who needs to know that.

And I wasn’t a fat kid, if you were wondering, based on the last comment. Who knows how I dodged that one, but maybe it had something to do with the variety of sports I played.

Banana Chocolate Chip Baked Doughnuts {with Coconut}

by Chrissy

I decided to whip these up when nobody was home. WHAT was I thinking???

Ummm, hello, a fresh batch of baked doughnuts, with no one around to help me eat them?

Terrible terribly good idea.

These aren’t just your average doughnuts, either.

No way, not a bit. They are packed with flavor, both inside and out.

Satsuma Sunset Cocktail

by Chrissy

It’s the first Friday of the New Year. I think it’s about time for celebratory drinks, don’t you?

The Best Caramel Corn

by Chrissy

 I would like to introduce the pretty girl behind today’s guest post, my new sister in-law who is also named Lauren. True story.

Disclaimer: this Caramel Corn is truly the BEST of its kind. Some people blame the “holiday season” for gaining a few  pounds, but I proudly owe it all to this stuff.
