Before I present to you tons of delicious goodies I just want to mention that I now have a Facebook account! Please head on over and like me please! Please

The past while I have baked so many things thanks to some lovely days off. Too many for multiple posts and most I consider the rights to author bloggers so I thought I would share some of these treats with you in one post!
Here we go...

Dark Velvet Waffles

A few days ago on a walk I found this cute little birdie who couldn't fly.

Being who I am, I couldn't just leave him there so I brought home. I made him a small space where I could hopefully nurse him back to health. He eventually began eating and drinking and looked like he was getting a lot better. But unfortunately a few hours later he got worse and I am sad to say that he did not make it.

Poor little birdie. I hope you're happy where you are now.

Everything Cookie Dough Hummus

I love desserts that taste decadent but are actually healthy. I especially love foods that are fun!

This recipe is the normally savory hummus made sweet. Please do not think that chickpeas won't go well with sweet things because they do! I have been wanting to make a cookie dough hummus for a long time and I wish that I had done this sooner. It tastes so good!

Frozen Prune-Butter Spheres of Joy

Its summer time!

Doesn't everything seem so much better in the summer?
The days are warmer, sunnier, and longer. Days off feel so much better. Fruits and desserts taste sweeter.  Rays of sun feel yummy on bare skin.

My favorite summer treats are ice cream, iced coffee, and smoothies. The latter two I usually only have in the summer but ice cream I crave all year round. I wish I had some ice cream right now. Mmmm ice cream. Usually I still prefer having something to munch on then slurp so I made these fun little treats.
