An Ended Love Affair (Recipe: Hershey’s Toffee Bit Cookies)

It was great while it lasted… I know it was only yesterday that I was claiming my true love for all things snow. Yes, I threw around the word “Happiness” and how I was “present” with my kids. I even said “beautiful” and “Kansas” in the same sentence, which I believe is a first for […]
