So This Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Walks Into A Bar…

So This Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Walks Into A Bar… post image

No joke, I love a good cookie. Thick, soft, and loaded with comforting sweetness (and perhaps even still a bit warm, fresh out of the oven), a cookie can be the perfect grab-n-go dessert to nibble on with a cold glass of milk or a strong, hot coffee. But when a good cookie can be turned into a thick, decadent bar, then things get seriously (and deliciously) taken to another mouth-watering level. (I guess you could call it “raising the bar” on cookies.) A few weeks ... {more please!}

We all like to enjoy ice cream in our household; however, I would probably call my hubby more of a “connoisseur” of it. You see, I'm pretty much a creature of habit when I enjoy this delicious treat of the cold and creamy kind, as I'm a “Rocky Road” or "coffee-flavored, slow-churned-lower-fat-variety" kind of gal, not really deviating much from that flavor profile or style when I'm shopping for ice cream for myself. My husband on the other hand, loves to try out various flavors and ... {more please!}

I feel like I've only just gotten used to writing “2013” in the blank line next to the word “date” on any given paper requiring one. Where has the year gone? I have a mixed bag of emotions on this, as on one hand, I look at the upcoming year as a completely blank slate, ready and willing to receive me and whatever new growth will accompany; yet on the other hand, if I'm to be honest, I feel like I haven't even begun to scratch ... {more please!}

My, oh my, how time flies! I can hardly believe I'm sitting here writing a post for the blog's one-year anniversary, already! It seems like just a few weeks ago that my hubs and I were saying, “Wow, it's been 4 months since we've started the blog...it's been 6 months...8 months…”. Funny how life seems to move at light speed when you're going from blog post to blog post. I'd really love to share with you what a pleasure it has been this past year for ... {more please!}
