Hello there! Let's talk about cookies. They are by far my favorite sweet. One of the best things about my mom's house is the cookie jar. She always has a jar chock full of chocolate chips, snickerdoodles, or espresso chocolate cookies. I've tried to mimic her and I keep my own cookie jar on the counter, mostly because pairing a cookie with my afternoon cup is a persistent addiction. And, I'm pretty sure these cookies will be a new staple.Read More
Is anyone else almost done blazing through Gilmore Girls on Netflix? Because, I forgot. I forgot how much I missed Lorilei and Rory's snarky banter. I forgot that I wanted to move to Stars Hollow and run the Dragonfly Inn. I forgot that Luke's food looks like my mom made it, and Sookie's food... Holy Mother! So gorgeous! I forgot Ron Swanson was a creepy guest star. So weird! I forgot how cute coats were in the mid-2000s. (We rocked that look y'all.) All that to say, I'm slightly obsessed... just bordering an addiction. I may or may not be humming Where you Lead as I type this. I also forgot that I cannot eat like those infuriating Gilmore Girls. Tater tots on pizza? No. Creamy smoothies are much more my style.
Since it is Williams-Sonoma smoothie week, we thought we would share one of our favorite smoothies. I mix up a smoothie for Jason, Noah, and I almost every morning using my NutriBullet, but a new blender is on my Christmas list! This smoothie is one of our creamiest ever. The trick? Persimmons. One of my mother-in-law's neighbors was handing them out for Halloween. (So cute, right?) I wasn't sure what to do with them, and then I tossed one in my smoothie so it wouldn't go bad.! These lovely, little mid-fall gems were made to be in smoothies. It fluffed the whole thing up. I know it's a bit of an unexpected ingredient for a smoothie, but we like wacky, seasonal ingredients here.Read More
