Seasoned Butter Roasted Potatoes

I've been back in the kitchen again and have been trying out some new recipes. One of them is an amazing Swedish Butter Cookie that I am trying to perfect, but still needs some tweeking. Technically, I'm trying to make a copycat recipe of a cookie I get at our local Sedalia Bakery. Here's how they looked....they were delicious, but not exactly perfect. Once I get it mastered, I will post the recipe!

The cookie is divine.

Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Because you should eat cookies everyday.

Well, maybe not everyday.

Okay, everyday.

My weakness is a delicious homemade chocolate chip cookie. Especially  from my favorite recipe, featured in my cookbook, Real Food. Real Kitchen. So Good! I call them The World's Most Amazing Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie with Sea Salt. 

Longest. Name. Ever.

But oh so deserving of it.

Have You Ever Done A Juice Fast?

Have you ever done a juice fast before?

Do you juice at all?

The past week and a half, my husband  and I have been doing a juice fast. We do these a couple times a year and although I sometimes dread them right before they start, I always am so happy we do them.

The only thing I'm trying to figure out is how to make chocolate chip cookies a part of our juicing. 

I miss my treats. I miss my desserts. I miss my chocolate.

But it's so worth it!

Dark Chocolate & Cream Cheese Stuffed Sourdough French Toast


There are very few things that make breakfast amazing and adding chocolate is one of those things at the top of my list.

And eating breakfast for dinner. Or lunch.

Take for instance French toast. I ate this all the time growing up, but never like this!
