Happy Wednesday!

So a forewarning, I’m sharing lots of links. I can’t help it! Despite the crazy that’s happening, there’s a lot of good.

  1. My kids and I listen to the Newsies Broadway Soundtrack at least 3 hours every day. We love it so much! We crank up the volume then dance and sing like no one is watching. 😁
  2. Disney released a virtual tour of its newest Disneyland parade.
  3. Well this guy makes me feel lazy. He ran a marathon in his tiny backyard during isolation.
  4. Hamilton lovers, watch this! John Krasinski does it again. I’ve watched it 3 times because I can’t get enough.
  5. Check this out! A hydroflask is found in the background of a scene from “Little Women”.  😂
  6. Huge HP fan right here! Look what JK Rowling just announced… Harry Potter at home.
  7. Apple is designing face shields for medical workers.

Recipe Spotlight

⭐️Crumbl Chocolate Chip Cookies ⭐️

A homemade Crumbl chocolate chip cookie being torn in half.

You guys are LOVING my Crumbl Cookies! Here are some of your comments about these cookies:

“I made these with my husband for a date night and they were a HUGE hit. We baked two cookies on one sheet at a time (because they are deliciously big) and they came out great. I think the elevation difference here affects our bake time. I baked them for about 12 minutes and it was perfect. I recommend letting them sit on the baking sheet like instructed. They are PERFECT! I like them better than Crumbl and Chip.”

“I was in Colorado and discovered Crumbl Cookies. I have been obsessed with their chocolate chip ever since. We don’t have a Crumbl in Northern California, so I thought I’d try making one. And then I discovered THIS recipe! I followed the directions exactly and the cookies are PERFECT! Well, I made one simple change—I pulled the ball of dough apart, in half, flipped the top half over and put it back on the bottom half before I baked them. It’s a technique to create a more mounded cookie. Anyway, my family cannot believe how delicious these cookies are.”

“Holy cookies! Best cookies, I’ve ever made. Thank you for the recipe. ”

“Better than Crumbl! Nice work!”

THANK YOU for taking the time to comment! ❤️

Favorite Finds

Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake anyone?

So I totally caved and purchased some crafting things from Amazon. Man alive we are getting desperate for some variety at our house. Bought a huge thing of glue to make slime. Oh, and some glitter glue.

My favorite mixing bowl broke, but I found these replacements and I’m hooked. Definitely a solid purchase.

Seems like everyone is baking bread these days, have you joined in yet? Try this flaky brioche recipe! You have the time, remember 😉


Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful week. 🌷
