Peppermint Drizzled Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Dark chocolate brownies with a sweet peppermint drizzle. These literally taste like you’re eating fudge, but they’re secretly healthy!     Growing up, I thought that all brownies came from a box.

Chocolate Truffle Pumpkin Muffins

Tender spiced pumpkin muffins with a dark chocolate truffle hiding in the center. Secretly healthy, but they practically taste like cupcakes for breakfast!     Two weeks ago while running lunchtime errands in my hometown, my route drove past my old high school.

Hey new moms, I’ve thought the terrible things too

Hey new moms, I’ve thought the terrible things too

One of my best friends is having her first baby. She’s a woman who has been fiercely independent her whole life. She has traveled to some ridiculous number of countries.
