No-Bake-Oreo-Delight

“Mark? What’s a new recipe you want me to make?” (A common question I ask of the hubs.)

Chocolate chip cookies”- always his response. Why do I even ask.

“No”, I grumble- ”something new, for my blog…I’ve already made chocolate chip cookies.”

-Pause. He pretends to think “Ummmm……..Chocolate chip cookies”

Cookbook Giveaway! (Now closed)- watch for more!

Cookbooks are fun- even if you’re not in the mood to cook. The ideas alone are fun. The pictures are fun. A cookbook is like Pinterest- except you can hold it, and flip through real pages.

So this cookbook is perfect for when you’re in the mood for dessert but don’t feel like working your butt off. (Like how I am 72% of the time.) You can also buy it here!

5 Minute Mug Cakes…How awesome is that?! I tried some of these mug cakes and I can’t believe it actually works!!
