Halloween 2018

Halloween 2018

Last year was all about our DIY Halloween but with a great deal on costumes at Target this year I couldn't resist buying the boys exactly the costumes that they wanted. Except for our little Mickey Mouse addict, he already owned his costume and all of the sass that came along with it. For the first [...]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

A couple weeks ago when I went to grab a handful of groceries I found Nestle Simply Delicious chocolate chips that advertise they are free of the "eight major allergens."

Ingredients: 1 cup vegan butter (Earth Balance Organic). 1 cup brown sugar. 1/2 [...]
