Recipe Roundup: Cream Cheese Hershey Bar Cookies

I saw this recipe about a month or so ago on Pinterest and have been meaning to make these cookies for about 2 weeks now. But then life happened… Tonight, after working late and realizing that I needed a recipe for Thursday, I flew into action and hoped for the best.

If I haven’t admitted to this before, I will now: I think I’m part mouse. I LOVE cheese. I think it should be a food group all by itself.

OMG, I Think I’m a Foodie!

We put labels on a lot of things–people included. There are many labels I would give myself: good listener, funny, creative, obsessive handbag connoisseur, and the list goes on and on. However, what I discovered after coming home from dinner with one of my girlfriends last week is I can add another label to myself–foodie.
