Way back in June I sent this recipe off to a would-be project that never came to be… so on a positive note I at least get to share it here with you!!!
Keeping it shot and sweet today becasue I have a little down with the stomach flu. blahhhhh. It’s the pits. Hoping to get a chocolate bark tutorial and a gingerbread cut-out recipe up before xmas too, but if not I will post them shortly after. Let’s keep the holiday cheer flowing anyway, right?!!
But if you don’t hear from me before the weekend, I wish you all peace and love and light this holiday season and in every season. I’m so thankful for my readers and instagram friendsies. If you try any of the recipes here please leave a comment, I love to hear your feedback and always respond.
Peace + Love,
