Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Wow! I cannot believe I have not shared this recipe with all of you lovelies already. It is by far one of my favorites…and a super cinch to whip up. For realsies!BBB_Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies-1

If you are a true peanut butter lover, or not (my Dad “HATES” peanut butter…or so he says) you will LOVE these cookies (my Dad did). I recently (yesterday) baked them for some of my coworkers…and the response I got was humbling. Never have I ever blushed when someone raved about my baking…but a brewer I highly respect telling me this is THE best cookie he’s ever had…well that shit makes you smile just a little (a lot!!!).

Can you believe it is already April?! I mean, where did March go?!

I apologize for being absent this past month…life has been hectic, though it ended with a trip to Saint Lucia, so that was pretty amazing.BBB_Easter Cupcakes-1

If Easter is or is not your thing, I do hope yesterday was a fabulous day for you. I spent it with some of my family and ended it preparing for the BIG day…the NCAA National Championships wherein I do hope my boys win…ON WISCONSIN!!!

Grapefruit Margarita

Happiest of Mondays!BBB_Grapefruit Margarita-1

I have myself to be in quite the margarita kick as of recently (NOT complaining), so I thought I would share one of my favorites with you. It is a straight up, no frills, margarita, and to really kick it up a notch I added in some grapefruit (freshly squeezed of course!) to accompany the lime juice (also freshly squeezed…of course).

Strawberry Coconut Shortcake

I hope you all had a wonderful and lovely Valentine’s Day my Sweets! I know I sure did!

Steven made a quite delicious breakfast of toast, fried eggs, and hash browns, and then we took part in our usual weekend getaway to Target, where we buy all the things. Later that evening we went to Bos Meadery’s new taproom and tried all of their meads…which are to.die.for!!! The Buckwheat and Blueberry varieties were our favorites…so naturally we bought a bottle of each to bring home. From there we went to Old Sugar Distillery for a Hot Chair Toddy (mine with brandy, his with ouzo) and ended the night at Graze for our prix fix dinner. Always amazing and fabulous, and last night was most definitely no exception.Valentines
Winter is dragging on for FAR too long…amiright?! I mean, it’s so cold out I can barely breath, and the brisk winds make me appear as though I have been crying to the point my nose is a runny mess. Gross.

Strawberry Dream Cake

Hey Pals!

I hope every single one of you had a fabulous weekend filled with all things amazing and delicious! My weekend was the first in a long time where we had nothing pre-planned. It was awesome and jam-packed with family and friends time, sleeping in, and relaxing.

This past weekend was a friend’s birthday and her boyfriend (also a friend) had me bake her a surprise birthday cake. It was her favorite kind of cake; strawberry cake with strawberry frosting and strawberries on top. I knew from the start that I wanted to only use real strawberries, none of that jello business leading to whack artificial flavors, and per his request I kept it simple yet classy.BBB_Strawberry Dream Cake-2
