These are the best cookies you will ever eat. Well that is, if you like chocolate and deliciousness and a cookie that keeps its shape. The original recipe is here, but I did modify.

Meals for the week of Aug 26th

The plan for this week is easy! My mom heads home tomorrow and it’s going to be my husband, me (three days post knee surgery with my leg in a straight brace), and our two year old.  Our Hungry Harvest options included spaghetti squash this week.  Since those can get kinda pricy, I went ahead andContinue reading “Meals for the week of Aug 26th”
