What If.. You Put Oreos Inside a Chocolate Chip Cookie? (+ Recipe)

What If.. You Put Oreos Inside a Chocolate Chip Cookie? (+ Recipe)

Hey guys! It’s been nearly a year since I posted a recipe on this blog, which is silly because Matt and I cook things from scratch all the time and honestly, what’s better than the house smelling like fresh baked cookies?  There are quite a few treats in our regular rotation, but today I want to share a recipe with you that is one of my husband’s favorites. He recently made these for a work potluck, and they were a huge hit.  They’re always a huge hit because who can resist an Oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookie? Honestly, even if it’s not your […]

Transatlantic Cruise: Iceland (8/8)

Transatlantic Cruise: Iceland (8/8)

Hello my loves. Today is the final – the very last – entry about my Transatlantic Cruise from April.  It was the adventure of a lifetime.  It was exhausting.  It was spectacular.  If you ever have the opportunity to tour Europe – even just a small piece of it – I urge you to go.  It’s a stunning place, filled with levels of history that you have to see to truly understand.  The people are lovely, the buildings are lovelier, and British food is the best. Go. All that said, I feel wholeheartedly that Iceland is the most beautiful place on […]

Transatlantic Cruise: London (7/8)

Transatlantic Cruise: London (7/8)

What does London mean to you? I think of the Beatles, and “London Bridge is falling down, falling down” and Jack the Ripper and that scene in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows where the dementors are destroying the Millennium Bridge.  One of my favorite scenes I’ve ever written is in my guilty-pleasure WIP So I Married a Demon Hunter in which my MC (Katie) stabs a demon in full formal dress on Durward Street in the rain. I just lost about 30 minutes scrolling through Dean Winchester GIFs and I have no regrets. I really like London. I had high expectations. We […]

Transatlantic Cruise: Paris (6/8)

Transatlantic Cruise: Paris (6/8)

The city of Paris is an artist’s dream.  Every building is a masterpiece.  The bridges are filigreed and lined with sculptures… It’s incredibly stunning.  I feel so lucky to have been able to see this city.  My only regret is that my pictures are very subpar – we didn’t have any time to wander individually in Paris, so everything was taken through a window. For those of you lovelies just tuning, I’ve been sharing my European adventures on Saturdays over the last month!  Each of these posts standalone, but if you want to check out all the other beautiful destinations, […]
