Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

Hi guys.

So I haven’t been doing much blog-related stuff lately, so I haven’t had much to post about. We’re still getting over sicknesses over here, so it’s been hard to keep up. Anyway, you don’t want to hear my excuses. You’re here for some deliciousness or craft ideas.

Thank You Cookies

So I told you in my last post that my Lolo passed away last week. Well, while he was in the ICU for two and a half weeks, he was attended to by many wonderful nurses. So the family wanted to give them a token of our appreciation. And what better says “Thank you” than cookies? (more…)

Sometimes, I make recipes (usually new ones, but sometimes ones I’ve used before) and I just don’t get it right. This is one of those times.

My grandma makes these turtle bars, and they might be my favorite thing she makes. Definitely top 5. So after we got all my grandma’s recipes last year, I couldn’t wait to make them. (more…)
