I have been dealing with a serious issue since giving birth. I cannot get enough of cookies! This is serious folks. I have been chowing down on them like the cookie monster, worse actually. I have been doing well with watching what I eat and exercising more and I'm seeing results. My pre-pregnancy clothes are starting to fit like they used to. I'm sure they would fit like a glove if it weren't for darn cookies! I am so weak and just put a batch of peanut butter chocolate chip cookies in the oven. There is nothing like that fresh out of the oven goodness. I have a serious love/hate relationship with them right now. They are so good but oh so bad for the booty. I'm looking forward to the day when Kate can indulge with me, then I won't feel so bad baking them every WEEK! Maybe I should go on that cookie diet?! ha ha. Someone help! At this rate Oprah will lose her weight before I lose my 10 pounds! Time to run, cookies are ready!
When Chris and I went to Mexico this past winter we quickly become addicted to their blended espressos. I found myself craving them when we got home so I played around with a couple of instant espressos and ended up making the best iced coffee, ever. What you’ll need. Medaglia D’oro instant espresso Water Ice Coffee creamer of your choice Heavy cream + caramel Trust me on the instant espresso. I tried them all. This is the best. I get it at Kroger. I’ve also heard Walmart carries it as well as trusty amazon. Step one. Get your ingredients out. I fill my glass up halfway with water and pour a capful of instant espresso in. Mix it real good. Time to cool it down. Now comes the sweet part. This next step is money. Lordy. If you’re feeling really naughty you can add caramel sauce. Do it. If you’ve been wanting the recipe for the BEST homemade caramel ever then you’re in luck. This is the recipe from my mother in law. It is life changing. Ta-Da! Tag me on Instagram at
