Unexpected Surprise

Top: Target ($7)
Cardigan: NY&Co, thrifted ($3.50)
Jeans: AE ($17)
Shoes: ($10)

I got this yellow cardigan some time ago and had planned to take the buttons off and change them.
I never did get around that...oops.

This resulted in a fantastic discovery this morning when I realized they're a perfect match for the colors on this shirt I got from Target.

Oreo Reeses Overload

 A few weeks ago I made these things at the suggestion of a friend. I just happened to have the right ingredients and it only took 15 minutes, so I absolutely had to share this!

What you need:
Reeses (I used white chocolate ones)
Chocolate coating (I used vanilla/white chocolate bark)
Sprinkles, chocolate chips, etc for topping (optional)
Split oreos in half, careful to keep the cream in one piece, on one half of oreo. Take two cream halves and sandwich a peanut butter cup in between. 

Melt chocolate bark, dip the oreo sandwich in the bark. Place on wax paper to cool. Decorate with desired toppings before coating hardens. 

I had leftover white chocolate bark, so I took all of the non-cream oreo halves that I had accumulated and crumbled them into the extra excess and poured it out into cookies and cream bark.

These were a hit, and they're really not that hard to make! Maybe a good Valentine's Day treat for this upcoming week?

Hi everyone...just checking in to reassure you that I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. I think. I've been outrageously busy these past two weeks with the new in leaving home and not coming back for 14 hours busy. So bear with me, I'll do my best to pick back up in the next week! It also hasn't helped that it's been freezing cold and thus all I want to wear is sweatpants...

Hope everyone is having a good week so far, and don't catch that nasty flu that's going around!

Apple Cider Pancakes

I saw apple cider pancakes on Pinterest the other day and decided to make some of my own! I chose to use mainly whole wheat flour and some flaxseed and cornmeal to make them more healthy and rich in flavor and texture.

Apple Cider Pancakes
3/4 cup whole wehat
1/4 cup white
1/4 cup flax
1/4 cornmeal
1/2 cup water
1 cup apple cider
1/4 cup milk
1/4 oil
2 tsp baking powder
1 egg

Just mix together the dry ingredients, and the wet ingredients. Then mix together until fully combined. You could even add some diced apples if you wanted! I'd suggest browning them a bit in a skillet first.
