Chocolate Filled Poppyseed Cookies - Mrs. Penguin

I don’t really have a follow up. Is that bad?

I ran out of these cookies over a week ago. And now I’m over halfway through the week and I really feel like I need a cookie. I have like a million things to do.

I was feeling particularly stumped this month. I don’t know why, as I said, peanuts are my favvvooorriite. Lately I’ve been experimenting with making bread for funsies.

Healthiest indulgence ever? Maybe.

Chocolate Avocado Pudding - Mrs. Penguin

So, I went to Olive Garden last week. And there was this good looking chocolate mousse on the dessert menu. I’ve gotta tell you, I wanted it. But, I didn’t want all the guilt.
