I’m so under caffeinated, I can’t even come up with a title.

January 10, 2019

  I’m doing the black coffee experiment. Again. Sigh. I keep hearing the phrase, “We can do hard things.” I’m inspired by it. I quote it to my kids. I believe it. Mostly. After three days of straight black coffee, I think the phrase should be modified to, “We can do hard things EXCEPT BE […]

Paleo Chocolate Caramel Cake   As a kid, I always coveted the store-bought birthday cakes with neon cartoon characters on them that all my friends had at their parties. My mom was more of a make-it-from-scratch kind of lady. Which I hated. Sort of. I mean, I loved homemade deserts AT HOME, where they belonged, […]
