Salads for Dinner

When warm weather sets in and the days are longer, I find myself wanting to be outside in the evenings instead of trapped in front of a stove cooking dinner.

Homemade Girl Scout Samoa Cookie Recipe

Seriously, I can’t stop. First, the Thin Mints and then the Tagalongs. And now the Samoas (aka Caramel deLites)! I swear I’m not trying to affect the Girl Scout cookie sales at all, but people, these homemade versions are GOOD! As in BETTER than the boxed versions! I’m sorry, girls in scout uniforms, but these […]
