Hope you guys are having a great week! My friend Jenna of Boston Chic Party recently reached out with an idea that I thought was brilliant – a virtual cookie swap! I immediately said yes because I thought it was such a great idea. What many don’t know about me is that outside from the blog, I love cooking, entertaining, and experimenting with new recipes. My mom and her friends still share recipes, but I feel that’s something that is missing in my own generation. Not only am I sharing my mom’s easy recipe for Rocky Road Fudge, but I’m also sharing links below to other blogger’s yummy cookie, brownie, and dessert recipes. They’re all perfect for the holidays. Why not make a board on Pinterest for holiday treats you want to make in the coming weeks and save them all their for easy access? Anyways, I hope you guys love the recipes and please let me know if you try making any of them!

I took these photos a few weeks ago when I was home in Maine ( you can read the rest of the posts here + here), where I had a nice long weekend of great food, much needed relaxation, and fun with friends and family. One of the days, Geoff and I went to McLoon’s Lobster Shack in Spruce Head which is just 10-15 minutes from Rockland and Owls Head. If you’re in Camden, it’s also nearby. I’ve grown up going to lobster shacks and worked at one in high school as a summer job. Going to a lobster shack when you’re in Maine is something that must be done, hands down. To me, I’ve always felt like there’s something so much more authentic about eating lobster on a wharf, rather than in a fancy restaurant with lobster juice up to my elbows. However, that’s my opinion.
Geoff and I went to the cutest restaurant the other night called Sycamore. It’s located in Newton Center, just outside of the city. It had the best ambiance and just felt so cozy. We both said it would be the perfect spot to come back to in late fall or the winter. We were both […]
