Homemade Oreos
Fact #1: I made Oreos. I didn’t think it was possible, either. Fact #2: They tasted just like the real ones.. on crack. So much better. So. Much.

Oatmeal Cookies with Chocolate Chips, Cranberries, and Pecans Today my husband and I are celebrating our first wedding anniversary. We have the day off thanks to Columbus and we’re trying to decide how we want to spend the afternoon. I’m also trying to decide whether I want to venture out for almond croissants (so addicted to those things) or whether I should try my hand at making some (likely to be a disaster).
