Head over Heels for these Cookies!!

Less chocolate chip cookie, more brown sugar shortbread with chocolate chunks—these cookies from Alison Roman's Dining In cookbook have started an Instagram craze_Recently got a copy of Dining In by Alison Roman and found this recipe and can’t wait to make it. So, it’s early Sunday morning (4:30) and I can’t wait any longer. I want chocolate and I want it now!! I may have to start one of those “will cook my way through the whole book” adventure (or disaster). Getting my “Where Cooking Begins” by Carla Lalli Music today so maybe I’ll combine the two, who knows? … Did I mention that I can’t cook?

Where’s the Rain?

DSCI1118For days and days it rained. I raced out to Target, got my rain gear and guess what? No more rain. But I’m ready. I want to run, jump, walk and dance on the beach in the rain and wind. Stop on the way home for a chocolate croissant and hot cup of joe. As I get older (and I will be adding another year this weekend) I find the simplest things bring me the most joy. Rain is in the forecast for Mother’s Day. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
