Italian Ricotta Cookies

These Italian Ricotta Cookies are soft, delicate and flavored with just a hint of lemon. You won't be able to eat just one!

It’s been a full on baking whirlwind in the Amundsen house lately! As usual for the month of December I’ve kept myself busy making all sorts of cookies, candies, and a whole bunch of other goodies. We’re even making caramel and chocolate dipped pretzel rods this weekend as client gifts. Yeah…I’m pretty sure I’ve already gained 10 pounds from all the Christmas treats! I think a change of eating habits is going to need to happen in January (our diet starts tomorrow…). But for now, I say bring on the treats! No shame right? It IS the holidays after all…

That’s seriously depressing… I have however finished watching Stranger Things for the second time, in anticipation of season 2 (which just came out)!  I’ve also made my fair share of…

We are Officially Homeowners!

Guys. We did it. We bought a house! And, in case you’ve been wondering, this is one of the reasons I’ve been so quiet on the blog for the past month (I’ve missed it!). Between cleaning and packing my old apartment, and decorating and remodeling my new home, it’s been quite chaotic around here. I’m definitely ready to get back into the swing of things…

Lake Powell Trip

Jacob and I just came back from a three day trip to Lake Powell with his family. With only a few weeks left of summer to enjoy (so sad!) this was certainly a good last trip before the fall weather hits! I am seriously in “awe” of how beautiful this little desert oasis was.
