Are you one of those peoples who wished Girl Scout cookies were sold all year long? I hear your plight. My favorite are the samoa cookies! How can you possibly go wrong with chocolate, coconut, and caramel?
If you’re like me you’re constantly trying to eat healthier…and constantly failing to do so. About every month or so I get this earth-shattering realization that junk food is bad for me and I need to start eating healthier and working out more…and this lasts for about a week or so before I slowly fall into bad habits again. But the good thing is that no matter how many times I fail at my healthy-eating regimen I always tell myself that I can do it again. You may fall hard but picking yourself up is what counts.

But let’s be honest: there will be times when you’re in a cinch because you have unexpected guests or have to make dessert for a potluck or whatever, and you need to come up with a dessert fast! Something presentable, something delicious, but also something simple and quick!
Hey readers! So I know I haven’t been too consistent in blogging, and I had a feeling that when the semester was in full swing I would be swamped with work. I kind of hoped that I would be able to maintain the blog regardless and NOT PROCRASTINATE, but of course I think being a college student is pretty much synonymous with procrastination on some level.
Chocolate-covered strawberries are such a decadent but guilt-free treat since there’s fruit involved. (Guilt free for me anyways…but when am I ever really guilty about eating something decadent and delicious and chocolate?) Continue reading
