It's simple.

Life get's crazy.  Let's take a minute to slow things down and enjoy what really matters: family, food, and making memories.

Everyone has a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.  Mine is super secret...it's on the back of the Nestle Chocolate Chip bag.  HAHA  Granted, it's not original, but it does the trick...every single time.  

Lucy is mama's little helper, as you can see.  She's now a year and a half and follows me everywhere I go.  I got her a stool for the kitchen, so she can see what I'm doing and feel involved, all while I can keep her at a safe distance.  

These are the little moments that I cherish and that I'll remember for ever.
