Maple Twists

Happy Friday! I’m going to make this quick, as I’ve had a hectic week and as I’m writing this I still have a quiz to study for. Okay, this week’s recipe is a good one. I’ve been making these twists for a few years now, and they are always the perfect addition to a weekend… Continue reading Maple Twists



I’ve finally put together a post including pictures of Stella, our springer spaniel puppy. I’ve arranged them chronologically for every week or two since we’ve had her, and looking back I can’t believe how much she has grown up already!

Salted Caramel Brownies

Hey guys. Let me start off by saying that I know it has been forever since I last posted. My life has been incredibly busy lately, mostly due to the fact that I started pharmacy school about a month ago. There have also been a few other things taking up my time.
