Mornin’ friends! How’s it going? I just finished up one heck of a delicious breakfast, but I’ll get to that in just a sec… Since Jay had a softball game last night, dinner around here was – once again – of the “quick and easy” variety. I really do love softball, I swear. But I’m […]

Recipe Archive: White Chocolate Oreo Cream Squares

by Courtney on November 10, 2011

For the past few days, I’ve been really good about not listening to that darn sweet tooth of mine. Typically, around 8 or 9pm, it starts calling out to me like it’s on a mission, which inevitably causes me to cave and indulge in some sort of sweet treat. But for the past three nights, […]

by Courtney on September 6, 2011

IMG_4696

No surprise here…I’ve already begun embracing all things “fall” related. I’ve pulled the decorations up from the basement, I started burning my pumpkin spice candles, and I’ve already indulged in a few pumpkin spice coffees from Dunkin Donuts. Have I mentioned I love fall? Well, along with my love of fall comes my love of […]
