Samoa Blondie Bars

These Samoa Blondie Bars are a twist on my favorite Girl Scout cookies. They are easy to prepare and are perfect for an afternoon treat. This past Friday I walked into my “new” office building with a special treat for my co-workers. I mean a little sweetness on the first day can go a long...

Slow Cooker Broccoli and Chicken

A new chapter is beginning. After 3 1/2 years of running the blog full time, it’s time for me to seek adventure elsewhere with real people and not just all my social media friends. Yes, I love you all dearly, but I’m missing the day to day interaction with adults.  This creative space started...
