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.

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.

Now for the depressing story. I love Susie's Senior Dogs, an organization that advertises senior rescue dogs on social media to increase their chances of getting adopted.

Kooper immediately won my heart because of how sweet he seemed despite his unhappy circumstances.
