Ultimate Tres Leches Cookies and Cream Cake
This is one of those I'm-so-excited-that-I'm-also-kind-of-sick announcements. One of those I'm-going-on-a-big-adventure-and-might-be-crazy announcements. One of those I-haven't-slept-in-two-months-because-I'm-terrified announcements. One of those I-need-to-finally-tell-you-or-I'll-burst announcements.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups (Low-Carb, Gluten-Free)
Which holiday has the best seasonal candy? Christmas has candy canes and Halloween has candy corn, so they obviously lose. Halloween does get props for all the trick-or-treat candy on the shelf, though — especially mini-Twix. Mini-Twix almost make up for candy corn. But you can't really make up for candy corn.
Chocolate Coconut Macadamia Nut Cups (Low-Carb, Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free)
The other day I raided the fridge for a "snack" between meals and settled on a bite — JUST ONE BITE — of my Vanilla Bean Cheesecake. But there was a problem. The bite I took left the piece kind of crooked. And I hate a crooked piece of cake, y'all — it's just not right. So I took another bite. You know, just to even it out.
But it wasn't quite even. I'm sort of a cake slice perfectionist. So I made the difficult decision to eat a whole other row of bites. Sure, I probably shouldn't eat so much cheesecake. But what a relief it'd be to have a nice, even slice left in the fridge.

I wrote this post as part of the Plugrá Butter Brigade. Thanks, Plugrá, for sponsoring this post and for making my favorite butter!
Some people are so good at friending. They drop a thoughtful gift by your house out of nowhere. They buy those blank-inside cards to write you a letter instead of looking for the ones with a prewritten message. They’re superb at keeping in touch.
Then there’s me. I have about the same talent at friending that I have at crafting, which is to say: none. I try! I'm just missing some critical relationship-building link in my brain somewhere, I think.
