Every time I plan to get caught up blogging something seems to happen lately. I think I’m going to have to come to the realization that our lives are just permanently hectic!
Jack was recently home from school for five days. It wasn’t so bad the first couple days. He actually napped a bit and was pretty cuddly and adorable. Lack of energy will do that to him. By the last day, once he was already fever free for 24 hours, he was driving me completely insane.
His energy was back. His appetite was back. His attitude was back. I was miserable.
For a couple months now I’ve been joining Deborah Balint of Rainy Day Bites on Instagram for a monthly cookbook club. Each month Deborah chooses a new cookbook and anyone who wants to join in can cook along and post photos.
Needless to say I’ve come across many delicious recipes this way and so I decided to share some with you. Today I’m going to share this recipe for Bounty Brownies from Home Baked by Yvette van Boven.
I know February is a short month but boy did it ever fly by in the blink of an eye! It’s already a few days into March and I still don’t believe it.
We had another busy month as usual, though I didn’t manage to capture much as far as photos go. Here’s what I’ve got in my kitchen this month….
My sweetie got me two gorgeous wooden bowls for Valentine’s Day. He know the way to my heart! The first is a huge antique bowl which currently holds all our blood oranges and cara cara oranges. It sits on the kitchen table which is currently covered with plastic and acting as a greenhouse with all our seedlings (hey, just keeping it real this month)!
I kind of have a thing for spicy and sweet paired together. I’ve posted recipes for spicy chocolate almonds and double dark chocolate chipotle cookies to name a few.
Earlier this week I posted a salty and sweet popcorn. While salty and sweet is a great combo, I think I may like spicy and sweet even more.
The idea for this particular cookie came from a show. I can’t really remember which one, the boys and I watch our share of Food Network and the Cooking Channel!
Yesterday was our second snow day. Mind you the first day there was no snow, not until the kids went to bed. So after being cooped up with the kids and getting some play time out in the snow it was time to warm up the house. Most people might start a fire or turn on the fireplace, I wanted to bake cookies!
