Menu Plan Monday 12/12/16

Happy snowy Monday to you all! I came across an article last week suggesting that cooking and baking can help you feel better. Although I found some of the connections made a little dicey (is cooking really “creative”?), overall I think t...

Happy Labor Day! It’s a bit bittersweet, as it signals the end of summer. I’ve really enjoyed this summer (as I usually do), and it seems it’s ended quickly (especially given how long I seemed to wait for it, through the winter). I...
