LOVING: Sunday night, I was really craving something sweet. I could have easily whipped up a cake or a few dozen cookies, but that would not have worked at all. I try not to eat any sweet treats during the week, and having leftover cookies/cake in the house would have been a recipe for disaster. I’m on my P90X kick, remember? Instead, I decided to Google recipes for quick single-serving desserts. And I came across this AWESOME one on No. 2 Pencil for a chocolate chip cookie in a cup. It takes less than 5 minutes to whip up, with only 1 minute of cooking time in the microwave. I already had all the ingredients on hand and even threw in a little instant espresso to kick it up a notch. It is soooo good! It has definitely been added to the recipe collection. Try the recipe out here.
THINKING ABOUT: Since I’ve been carrying my camera around a lot lately, I’ve decided to invest in a comfier and much more stylish camera strap. The one that came with the camera is perfectly fine. It’s just not at all ‘me’, and I’ve realized that I prefer to have the option to wear my camera crossbody, so a longer strap is in order for a more comfortable fit. (And to stop hitting my son in the head with the camera when I bend over to pick him up :)) These at Sarah Frances Kuhn are pretty tempting….
LOOKING FORWARD TO: I have a lot of projects stirring over here, but I’m most looking forward to turning my tiny pantry into a mud closet of sorts. I envision a few hooks, a board and batten wall treatment, storage baskets, and a crazy paint color, of course. A quick search gave me tons of inspiration, like this one from Apartment Therapy.
READING: My book club has finished up Divergent, and we recently moved on to the second book in Veronica Roth’s series, Insurgent. I haven’t started it yet but plan to this weekend. The first book was really good, and I’m excited to dig into this one! I highly recommend it.
