Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies {recipe}

Hello! It’s summer! I’ve shared before how much I love summer & how much I love spending time with my amazing kiddos! One of our “simple joys of summer” is spending time in the kitchen baking up a new recipe, so today I am excited to share this easy & yummy Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe with you. Annnnd you know if you eat a cookie, you are are going to want a glass of ice cold milk to go with it! ha! If kiddos don’t drink milk regularly, it can make it super hard for them to get the nutrients they need to grow. Today I’d also love to tell you about The Great American Milk Drive.  You’ll find out how you can help deliver nutrient-rich milk to those in need & help ensure that all children have the potential to play, learn & grow. So let’s get started! :)

Chocolate Dipped Oreos {recipe}

Good morning! My mind has been a million miles from the blog lately! My oldest son just left on his two year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints this past week. Saying see you later (not goodbye!) to him at the MTC was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done! I am so proud of him! We received two long emails & pictures from him on Friday. He is having the time of his life! You can follow along on his missionary journey right {HERE}. I don’t know about you but when I’m having an emotional day (or week!) eating something a little sweet can help me feel just a little bit better! ha! So today I’m excited to share this super easy & yummy Chocolate Dipped Oreos recipe with you. Enjoy!
