Scrambled eggs with a side of nostalgia.

I didn't really feel like cooking a meal tonight and I didn't feel like eating leftovers... Ever been there? Some people might have fancy back ups or convenient fill ins like frozen pizza or deli meat or something. Not me. Josh likes to make fun of me because when I go grocery shopping I get enough food to make one meal... so I don't have a lot of extra food hanging around. Yes, I realize it's inefficient and yes, I realize I'm going to have to get my act together when I'm cooking for a family. But for now... it works.

I always have eggs on hand. I'm a baker - there are some things you always have on hand... Butter, various sugars, flour, cake mixes, cupcake papers... and eggs. So I made scrambled eggs!

Scrambled eggs have a special place in my heart. They remind me of growing up and the nights that Dad was in charge of dinner. A lot of times we would have something on the grill... but if he was really winging it... scrambled eggs with a side of toast. So tonight as I was "slaving away" at the stove cooking scrambled eggs it made me smile thinking of my dad. I think I'm doing alright if I'm following in his footsteps... scrambled eggs and all. (Love you, De Da!)

Perfection in a cookie.

Whoa... it's been a while! I promise my intent was not to get engaged and fall off the face of the earth... As you can imagine, things have been a bit busy. Good good stuff is happening though! (More to come on that at a later date.)

I don't have a lot to say this moment - but I did want to write to tell you about some of the best peanut butter cookies that I've ever made. I can't take credit. I strictly followed the directions laid out before me. But you should follow these directions and make some yourself because they are gooooood.

That's all. The world just needed to know - these cookies are amazing.
