Why hello lovelies!

Oh my goodness it feels like it was a lifetime ago since I posted anything, so I apologize for being so MIA lately! I have been a busy little bee lately getting prepped for the start of the 2016 Farmers Market season, and I just realized that didn’t make time for recipe post this week! So yes, I am officially the worst blogger ever – but I really wanted to make it up to you with a quick little recipe post that you can hopefully at the very least use for some delicious breakfast / brunch inspiration in your house this weekend ūüôā

Happy Tuesday friendlies! I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start and that wherever you are in the world, it is as sunny and beautiful as it has been in Vancouver the last couple of days! I’m super excited to share this cookie recipe with you all today, so bear with me while I share a little story…

Alright so, acouple days ago I was perusing the bulk foods aisle at the grocery store – because this is pretty much my aisle of heaven, and where I spend a lot of my grocery shopping time– when I noticed something amazing… Macadamia nuts were on sale! Say whattt!?!?

Now I don’t know what the situation with macadamia nuts is in other parts of the world – but here in Vancouver, sales on macadamia nuts basically never happen; like it’s pretty much unheard of – so you can understand my excitement when I noticed they were on sale.

Okay, so sometimes it seriously feels like all I ever post for you guys are recipes involving peanut butter and chocolate……… am I completely off the mark on this one or am I overdoing it a little on the peanut butter and chocolate front….??

Hang on a second…. did I just ask if I’m “overdoing it” on the peanut butter and chocolate front???¬†Scratch that –¬† and I apologize for asking such a ridiculous¬†question –¬†one could¬†never “overdo it” when it comes to peanut butter and chocolate… am I right?

Happy Wednesday lovelies! I love Wednesdays don’t you? It’s always exciting to me when we get to the mid-point of the week, because It’s at this point that I¬†start to get¬†super stoked for the weekend, and it’s looking like it’s going to be another sunny one this week here in Vancouver, so I really can’t wait!

In light of the return of fabulous weather and upcoming weekend vibes – I think we are due for a little mid-week celebration don’t you? So glad we agree on this – And what better way to¬†do up a mid-week celebration,¬†than with some breakfast for dinner tonight?

Are you a breakfast for dinner fan? Cole and I are all about the breakfast for dinner – ¬†and especially so when it’s¬†in the form of these Frosty Cinnamon Sugar Waffles… mhmmmm¬†we went there.

Skillet Cinnamon Buns with Cream Cheese Frosting

IMG_1493

I have one question for you today – is there anything better than homemade cinnamon buns?¬†Honestly, I haven’t made a batch of cinnamon buns in a long time, {pure craziness I know}, but his past Saturday I had¬†such a craving for them, I had¬†absolutely no choice but to make a fresh batch.

Now I have always had a little bit of a thing for cinnamon buns – and by a little thing I mean I’m basically addicted to them {you can read all about my cinnamon bun addiction in¬†my previous post for Dark Chocolate Espresso Cinnamon Buns}.

However; I guess because it had been so long since I had actually made & eaten a batch of classic cinnamon buns, I forgot just how incredibly special they are, and¬†I just can’t help but think that they really are the best thing to bake for a weekend breakfast in all of the land.

Dark Chocolate Chunk Muffins

IMG_4699

I have a serious soft spot in my heart for a good, classic chocolate chip muffin. Just the thought of sitting down with a warm, chocolate chip muffin and an ice cold glass of milk gets me all warm and fuzzy inside.

I guess chocolate chip muffins just have a way of bringing back happy childhood memories for me because when my brothers and I were still little, and my mom had to bring us along with her to the mall, she would always reward us with a special treat at the end of our trip if we were well behaved while she did her shopping. The kind of treat would change depending on which mall we happened to be in on a given day, but there was one mall close to home that used to have the most amazing muffin shop in the food court that she would often take us to.

Chocolate Velvet Pie

IMG_0989

If you have spent more than roughly thirty seconds on my blog, you will know that it’s no secret that I kind of have a special relationship with chocolate. But for those of you who are just meeting me, let me just say this… I love chocolate. I literally have zero self control when it comes to chocolate. Once I have a piece, I can’t stop until I have consumed the entire chocolate supply.

And since we’re getting to know each other, I should probably tell you that I also love pie.¬†Suffice to say,¬†the idea of chocolate and pie coming together in a¬†magical harmony of homemade, baked¬†deliciousness is pretty much my idea of heaven.
