Super Simple Chocolate Cool Whip Cookies 3 Ingredients www.dineanddish.net

Vacation Mode {Recipe: Super Simple Cool Whip Cookies}

Not In Kansas {Recipe: Grilled Avocado and Steak Fajita Wrap}

There are a few things we don’t have in Kansas… the ocean, The Kardashian’s and good avocados. Of those three I believe a big thank goodness is in order for the lack of Kardashian sisters. I do, however, wish I was a hop, skip and a jump away from an ocean/beach and I wish I […]
