Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

By Friday, September 2, 2016

A regular activity for the kids and I this summer has been baking. Besides the mess, it is something I enjoy doing with them. Perhaps it's because there is a treat at the end, but everyone generally stays on the path and acts like a proper human. We are now at a point where Jax has a recipe he can pull off on his ...

By Friday, August 19, 2016

Peaches are in season and I am loving it.

Anyway, this year I knew Billie was ...
