Choc. Frostings

I bet you thought I had forgotten all about this little site, possibly mothballed it, or otherwise lost interest. BUT, in reality, I just had to take a step back and reprioritize. I realized I was trying to keep up with four blogs, Girl Scouts, volunteering at school, work, family, etc., and something had to … Continue reading

She isn’t sure which came from where in most cases, so we will give these … Continue reading
