Saw it on Sat, went back today to get measurements and take a few… Continue reading Antique farm table

Best ever chocolate chip cookies

I feel like I’m always on the hunt for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe. It’s a tough one for me. I’ve tried making countless versions of the classic cookie, but really haven’t been super impressed with the results. They’re either super flat, or too cake-y, or dry and crumbly…I don’t know, I guess my… Continue reading Best ever chocolate chip cookies
