Here's The Latest #152
March 21, 2020

Hello, it's been awhile! Life has been full. And now, just recently, life has quickly changed into something different altogether. All of a sudden our whole family is home. All. Day. Long. Every single day. Our schedules are all wonky. And the only time we leave our house is to get some outdoor exercise, or to make a quick dash for groceries or grab some takeout.

I know that this newsletter isn't going to cure the issues going on in our world, country, state, or home. But. I believe that making a delicious meal or a fun sweet treat can be a little like therapy. I'm highlighting some of our favorite comfort food recipes, hoping that you might pick one (or two or three?) to make in the upcoming week, and that it'll bring you some peace and joy during this trying time.

On a celebratory note, our oldest turned 18 yesterday. And she chose a Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie for her birthday treat. If you haven't tried this recipe, add it to your list! :)

All my best to you.
Take care,
Brenda
