    First, before I get to the review, let me apologize. This blog was never intended to be silent for so long, but I teach high school and for whatever reason, when I went back to school this year, things have just been SUPER busy from the moment the students came back! I haven’t had much…

    Remember how I told you we had a Moana dinner and movie party, and the food was themed around Polynesia? These cookies were our dessert. I came up with the recipe from the ground up, and I’ve been tweaking them for awhile. This recipe is easy, delicious, and you’ll never make enough! They are also…
