February 2016 in Review

Another month has FLOWN by! February was full of love, adventure, good eats, big decisions (more on that later), and family time. We spent 9 days away from home, celebrated birthdays, watched the Super Bowl, spent time outside, traveled 5038 miles by air, climbed a mountain, and enjoyed the sunshine! I baked a lot of yummy treats but I gave 99% of them away! Trying to stick to my resolutions and healthy living goals 🙂 I love finding ways to celebrate every day. Flowers! Sprinkles! Pretty packages! Cocktails! Pretty tables! Super Bowl eats were delish! My friend CeLee made this adorable football! […]

They’re like my Mrs. Schae Bars minus the pretzels and Chex plus oats and chocolate chips. Still peanut butter-y goodness, just in puffy, gooey, cookie form. There’s so much freedom with this […]

Mrs. Schae Bars

Peanut butter. Chocolate. Sweet. Salty. Ooey gooey crunchy deliciousness…. These are probably the most requested treat I’ve ever made and I have my amazing mom to thank for the recipe. Growing up, I remember making 4-5 batches of these before every skating competition (you know, good “bus” or “plane” food for 20+ starving girls) and they have since been known as Mrs. Schae Bars.
